The shape of breasts alter over time. Just like the rest of your skin the breasts lose elasticity as you get older. Changes in breast shape and “perkiness” can also be effected by pregnancy, breastfeeding and also changes in bodyweight. This can result in a dramatic loss of “perkiness” or sagging that a large number of 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 done together. First the excess skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. Your plastic surgeon will discuss what specific areas would be involved to give you the shape you desire. The popularity of breast lifts has increased dramatically over recent years. This less dramatic surgery can help achieve that youthful breast look without the need for more traditional breast augmentation. You may be familiar with the term “mommy makeover” as this procedure has grown in popularity over recent years. A mommy makeover is a term for a series of procedures all done at the same time to regain the youthful appearance often times lost after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover commonly consists of breast augmentation, a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
