Although implants do not lift up a sagging breast, they do help mildly sagging breasts appear less saggy. They do this in two ways:
1. Implants take up some of the slack in loosened skin thereby increasing the volume and decreasing the saggy look.
2. Implants, to a mild extent, rotate the lower portion of the breast upward, making the breasts appear less saggy.
For moderate or severe sag, a lifting procedure or a lifting procedure with implants is usually performed.
