As with all skin on the human body, it loses elasticity as time passes. This loss in elasticity of the breast skin results in a change in shape. Changes in breast shape and “perkiness” can also be effected by pregnancy, breastfeeding and also changes in weight. Sagging and an overall loss of perkiness can be the outcome. If you’re still happy with your breast shape and size, but want to correct the sagging discussed …a breast lift may be right for you. This is achieved with a breast lift that works in two ways. First extra skin is removed and then the breast tissue is tightened. Your plastic surgeon will discuss what specific areas would be involved to create the shape you desire. Breast lifts become more popular as a minimalist alternative to more traditional breast augmentation. 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 series of procedures all performed at the same time to regain the youthful look often times lost post pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover commonly consists of breast augmentation, a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
