As time goes by, your breasts change shape and natural 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. Changes in breast shape and “perkiness” can also be effected by pregnancy, breastfeeding and also changes in weight. This can result in a dramatic loss of “perkiness” or sagging that many women want to reverse. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and merely want back their youthful shape. Breast lifts require two procedures to be performed together. First the extra skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. For a full explanation of exactly what will be needed in your unique situation, you’ll want to speak with your plastic surgeon. Every woman is unique, and this means every breast lift will be unique as well. As many women are wanting to regain that perkiness, but are content with their current breast size, breast lifts have become increasingly common. The surgery is also commonly offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
