As time goes by, your breasts change shape and normal sagging can occur. This is not unlike the skin covering the rest of your body. The elasticity of all skin goes down over time, and this is no different for the skin of your breasts. Bodyweight changes can also cause changes in breast shape. Furthermore, motherhood (pregnancy and breastfeeding) are very common causes of breast shape change or breast sagging. This can result in a dramatic loss of “perkiness” or sagging that a large number of women want to reverse. Often times, women are still very happy with the overall size/shape of their breasts and are only looking to regain the perkiness they previously had. This is achieved with a breast lift that works in two ways. First excess skin is removed and then the breast tissue is tightened. For a complete explanation of exactly what will be required in your unique situation, you’ll want to talk with your plastic surgeon. Every woman is unique, and this means each breast lift will be unique to you. The popularity of breast lifts has increased substantially over recent years. This less dramatic surgery can assist in achieving that youthful breast look without the need for more traditional breast implants. You may be familiar with the term “mommy makeover” as this group of surgeries has grown in popularity over recent years. A mommy makeover is a term for a combination of procedures all completed at the same time to regain the youthful look often times lost after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover commonly consists of breast implants, a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
