As with all skin on the human body, it’s elasticity lowers 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 bodyweight. Sagging and an overall loss of perkiness can be the outcome. If you are still happy with your breast shape and size, but want to fix the sagging discussed …a breast lift may be right for you. Breast lifts require two procedures to be done in tandem. First the extra skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. For a full explanation of exactly what will be needed in your specific situation, you will want to talk with your cosmetic surgeon. Each woman is unique, and this means every breast lift will be unique to you. Breast lifts have grown in popularity as a less dramatic alternative to more traditional breast implants. The surgery is also commonly offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
