The breast tissue is connected to the chest muscle by ligaments called cooper. Strengthening the pectoral muscles unfortunately does not affect the mammary tissue ligaments. Therefore, the sagging ligaments cannot return to their former state with sports or different activities.
Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to change the shape of your breasts. During breast lift, excess skin is removed and the breast tissue is reshaped to raise the breasts.
If your breasts are drooping or your nipples point down, you may prefer a breast lift. Breast lift can also increase your self-image and self-confidence. A breast lift does not significantly change the size of your breasts. However, breast lift can be performed together with breast augmentation or breast reduction.
