As with all skin on the human body, it’s elasticity lowers over time. This loss in elasticity of the breast skin results in an altered shape. Changes in breast shape and “perkiness” can also be effected by pregnancy, breastfeeding and also changes in bodyweight. The result are breasts that lack their previous perkiness. If you are still happy with your breast shape and size, but want to correct the sagging discussed …a breast lift may be perfect for you. Breast lifts require two procedures to be done in tandem. First the excess skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. For a full explanation of exactly what will be needed in your specific situation, you will want to speak with your cosmetic surgeon. Each woman is unique, and this means every breast lift will be unique to you. As many women are looking to regain that perkiness, but are happy with their current breast size, breast lifts have become more and more commonplace. The procedure is also commonly offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
