As with all skin on the human body, it’s elasticity lowers as time passes. This loss in elasticity of the breast skin results in a change in shape. They might also change due to breastfeeding, pregnancy, and weight changes. The outcome are breasts that have lost their former perky shape. Often times, women are still very happy with the overall size/shape of their breasts and are simply looking to regain the perkiness they had before. The desired perky, non-saggy, appearance is achieved by removing extra skin and then tightening the breast tissue. The specific areas affected and procedures that would be completed to create your desired outcome will be specific to you. Your plastic surgeon will be able to explain this to you fully. The popularity of breast lifts has increased dramatically over recent years. This more minimalist surgery can assist in achieving that youthful breast appearance without the need for more traditional breast implants. Breast lifts are often combined with tummy tucks, liposuction and breast implants as part of a “mommy makeover”.
