Dear Dr. Togba,

Q.  My breasts have always drooped, but they now sag considerably, reaching down toward my navel. What can be done for me and how will it look afterwards?

 A. Women with breasts which sag significantly can have them lifted with a standard mastopexy. The breast tissue is maintained but the nipple is relocated upward and the skin envelope of the breast is reduced. This effectively eliminates the droopiness concerning you. The final results is a perky breast, similar to your original youthful shape, with a thin scar extending from the nipple region down to the chest wall.
