As with all skin on the human body, it loses elasticity over time. This loss in elasticity of the breast skin results in a change in shape. Weight changes can also cause changes in breast shape. Furthermore, motherhood (pregnancy and breastfeeding) are very common causes of breast shape change and breast sagging. Sagging and an overall loss of perkiness can be the result. If you are still happy with your breast shape and size, but want to fix the sagging discussed …a breast lift might be perfect for you. This is achieved with a breast lift that works in two ways. First excess skin is removed and then the breast tissue is tightened. Your cosmetic surgeon will discuss what specific areas would be involved to create the shape you desire. The popularity of breast lifts has grown substantially over the years. This more minimalist surgery can assist in achieving that youthful breast appearance without the need for more traditional breast augmentation. Breast lifts are commonly combined with tummy tucks, liposuction and breast augmentation as part of a “mommy makeover”.
