As time passes, 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. They might also change due to breastfeeding, pregnancy, and weight changes. Sagging and an overall loss of perkiness can be the outcome. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and simply 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”. The specific areas affected and procedures that would be done to create your desired outcome will be unique to you. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to explain this to you fully. The popularity of breast lifts has increased dramatically over the years. This less dramatic surgery can assist in achieving that youthful breast look without the need for more traditional breast implants. You might be familiar with the term “mommy makeover” as this group of surgeries has grown in popularity over recent years. A mommy makeover is a name for a combination of surgeries 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.
