Over time, your breasts change shape and natural sagging can occur. 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. Furthermore, motherhood (pregnancy and breastfeeding) are very common causes of breast shape change or breast sagging. This can result in a dramatic loss of “perkiness” or sagging that a large number of women want to remedy. In the event you’re still content with your breast shape and size, but want to correct the sagging discussed …a breast lift might be perfect for you. This is accomplished with a breast lift that works in two ways. First excess skin is removed and then the breast tissue is tightened. The specific areas affected and procedures that would be completed 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 grown quite a bit over recent years. This less dramatic surgery can assist in achieving that youthful breast look without the need for more traditional breast implants. Breast lifts are commonly paired with tummy tucks, liposuction and breast implants as part of a “mommy makeover”.
