As with all skin on the human body, it’s elasticity lowers over time. This loss in elasticity of the breast skin results in a change in shape. They may also change due to breastfeeding, pregnancy, and weight changes. This can result in a dramatic loss of “perkiness” or sagging that many women want to remedy. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and merely want back their youthful shape. 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 reach your desired result will be unique to you. Your plastic surgeon will be able to explain this to you fully. Breast lifts become more popular as a minimalist alternative to more traditional breast implants. You may be familiar with the term “mommy makeover” as this procedure has grown in popularity over recent years. A mommy makeover is a name for a combination of procedures all completed at the same time to regain the youthful appearance sometimes lost post pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover commonly consists of breast augmentation, a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
