Marcia Miller asks:
Is there a simple breast lift procedure? I don't want augmentation, just a little lift. I understand the coopers ligaments support breast tissue - is there a way to tighten them, or prevent further stretching?

Generally, a lift is performed to tighten the loose skin and reposition the nipple to a higher, more aesthetic location. Ligaments are not tightened. Occasionally, if the sagging is very minor, a small implant will improve the appearance with much less scarring on the skin. Support garments/bras should always be used to help slow down the sagging process. An exam by a board certified plastic surgeon will help determine the most appropriate option for you.
