As time goes by, your breasts change shape and normal sagging can happen. 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. Bodyweight changes can also cause changes in breast shape. Additionally, motherhood (pregnancy and breastfeeding) are very common causes of breast shape change and breast sagging. The result are breasts that lack their former perkiness. Many times, women are still very happy with the overall size/shape of their breasts and are simply looking to regain the perkiness they previously had. Breast lifts need two procedures to be performed together. First the excess skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. The exact areas affected and procedures that would be performed to create your desired outcome will be specific to you. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to explain this to you in full. The popularity of breast lifts has increased dramatically over recent years. This more minimalist surgery can assist in achieving that youthful breast look without the need for more traditional breast augmentation. The surgery is also often offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
