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 decreases over time, and this is no different for the skin of your breasts. Weight changes can also cause changes in breast shape. Additionally, motherhood (pregnancy and breastfeeding) are very common causes of breast shape change or breast sagging. The result are breasts that lack their previous perky shape. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and simply want back their youthful shape. This is achieved with a breast lift that works in two ways. First excess skin is removed and then the breast tissue is tightened. For a full explanation of exactly what will be required in your specific situation, you will want to talk with your plastic surgeon. Each woman is unique, and this means every breast lift will be unique as well. Breast lifts become more popular as a minimalist alternative to more traditional breast augmentation. You might be familiar with the term “mommy makeover” as this procedure has grown in popularity over the years. A mommy makeover is a name for a combination of procedures all performed at the same time to regain the youthful look sometimes lost after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover commonly consists of breast implants, a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
