Over time, your breasts change shape and natural 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 not any 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. The outcome are breasts that have lost their former perky shape. 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 completed in tandem. First the excess skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. Your plastic surgeon will discuss what exact areas would be involved to give you the shape you want. As many women are looking to regain that perkiness, but are content with their current breast size, breast lifts have become increasingly commonplace. You may be familiar with the term “mommy makeover” as this procedure has grown in popularity over recent years. A mommy makeover is a name for a combination of procedures all completed at the same time to regain the youthful appearance sometimes lost after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover commonly consists of breast implants, a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
