An uplifted bust is a characteristic of beautiful breasts. To most women, it is more vital than breast size. A woman’s body undergoes a lot of physical and hormonal changes at some point in time of her life such as pregnancy, lactation(breastfeeding), menopause and weight loss or weight gain. These changes oftentimes result in loss of breast volume and firmness due to loss of skin elasticity and loss of fat, leaving them deflated, flat and sagging. Overly sagging breasts are said to have “Breast Ptosis”.

So how do you lift sagging breasts? In this article, we will discuss the best surgical techniques to deal with droopy breasts such as breast lift surgery, breast augmentation (breast implants) and breast reduction with a renowned breast surgeon in India Dr. Sachin Shah who is a plastic surgeon in Vadodara, Gujarat.

Do You Have Sagging Breasts?

Sagging of breasts over time (breast ptosis) is a natural unavoidable process. A breast lift or mastopexy procedure is commonly sought by women with sagging breasts who seek out Dr. Sachin Shah, a plastic surgeon in Vadodara.

What Causes Saggy Breasts?

There are many causes of breast ptosis including:

  • Aging of the breast tissues and breast laxity
  • Effects of gravity
  • Not wearing a supporting bra regularly
  • Larger breast size
  • Rapid weight loss
  • With pregnancy due to over-stretching of the skin

When Do You Need A Breast Lift, Breast Augmentation, or Breast Reduction?

If you are unhappy about the shape, size, and projection of your breasts, cosmetic breast surgery may be the solution. Different cosmetic surgery procedures can help lift the breasts, attain a youthful fullness and restore a proportionate and perky appearance. These options are decided according to individual needs for lifting, increasing breast size, or reducing breast size and can be combined as well. All give long-lasting dramatic results.  

What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery is aimed at increasing breast size, shape, and fullness. The plastic surgeon achieves this by placing either silicone or saline breast implants below the breast tissue or the chest muscles. The life of such implants, in general, is long-term for several years. Breast augmentation surgery is a day procedure and performed under general anesthesia. During the recovery process, one needs to use a support bra. After the procedure, you can return to your daily routine in a few weeks. The scars will fade as time goes by and are planned where they stay concealed appropriately.

What is Breast Lift Surgery?

Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) is a procedure done to lift a woman’s sagging breasts and restore a pleasing chest profile. The plastic surgeon performs breast lift by correcting the elevation, projection, size and contour of the breasts. The surgery is a daycare procedure and performed under general anesthesia. The recovery time is about two weeks. Scars remain faintly visible for a year until they fade but they do remain slightly visible.

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce the size of massive breasts which can lead to breast sagging as well. The surgeon removes excess fat from the breasts and glandular tissue to get a breast size proportional to the patient’s body. A breast lift is also achieved with this procedure. Some patients choose breast reduction to alleviate the discomfort felt with large breasts. After this procedure, the patient has to wear a support bra to support the breasts during healing. They can return to their regular activities in about two weeks and scars become less noticeable after a year.


There are no magical solutions to tighten and lift your breasts naturally. Be wary of creams, supplements, massages and pumps advertised to ” lift breasts without surgery” or “reshape the bust naturally.” These claims are generally exaggerated and not found to be effective.

Some ways to help your breasts along in general, and prevent sagging, involve keeping a healthy skincare routine and wearing comfortable supportive bras which can help prevent and delay skin wrinkling and maintain breast support. Chest exercises can help improve your posture, tighten your chest muscles and maintain healthy body weight. You must avoid extreme weight fluctuations.

These are some general preventive measures to avoid early sagging, but once breast ptosis develops, cosmetic breast surgery is the only definite and effective way to tighten and lift sagging breasts, maintain a smooth and rounded bust shape and improve breast firmness.
