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 no 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. This can result in a significant loss of “perkiness” or sagging that many women want to reverse. Often times, women are still very content with the overall size/shape of their breasts and are merely looking to regain the perkiness they previously had. Breast lifts need two procedures to be completed in tandem. First the extra skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. The exact areas affected and procedures that would be performed to reach your desired result will be specific to you. Your plastic surgeon will be able to explain this to you in full. The popularity of breast lifts has grown dramatically over recent years. This less dramatic surgery can help achieve that youthful breast appearance without the need for more traditional breast implants. The surgery is also often offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
