Nursing, pregnancy, gravity, and significant weight gains or losses can cause breasts to lose their firmness and shape over time. A breast lift in Athens with Dr. Pittman addresses this sagging and inevitable loss of confidence. Dr. Pittman can also restore enlarged nipple areolar complexes to a smaller size while repositioning them on the breast. Dr. Pittman often performs breast lifts in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery, to give you fuller, more youthful breasts.
