As time goes by, 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 decreases over time, and this is not any different for the skin of your breasts. 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 former perkiness. Often times, women are still very happy with the overall size/shape of their breasts and are merely looking to regain the perkiness they previously had. Breast lifts require 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 completed to reach your desired result will be specific to you. Your plastic surgeon will be able to explain this to you fully. The popularity of breast lifts has increased substantially over recent years. This less dramatic surgery can help achieve that youthful breast look without the need for more traditional breast implants. The procedure is also commonly paired with tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
