As time goes by, 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 bodyweight. The result are breasts that have lost their previous perky shape. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and merely want back their youthful shape. This is achieved with a breast lift that works in two ways. First extra skin is removed and then the 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 wanting to regain that perkiness, but are content with their current breast size, breast lifts have become increasingly common. The procedure is also often offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
