Ptosis is a generic term which means drooping.  I assume you mean breast ptosis?  Correcting breast ptosis at asny age has several options.  They are all surgical options.  The result may change with age and/or pregnancy.

You should first be evaluated by an Oculoplastic surgeon to figure out the cause of your ptosis.  There are treatments available.

The first step is a thorough evaluation by an ophthalmologist to rule out any underlying cause. Typically, ptosis is repaired surgically by one of several methods. Ensure that you find an eyelid surgeon with alot of ptosis repair experience as a common upper eyelid lift or blepharoplasty alone will not remedy this problem. I hope this information is helpful.
