Over time, 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 not any different for the skin of your breasts. They might also change due to breastfeeding, pregnancy, and weight changes. This can result in a dramatic loss of “perkiness” or sagging that a large number of women want to reverse. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and merely 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. The specific areas affected and procedures that would be performed to reach your desired outcome will be unique to you. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to explain this to you in full. As many women are looking to regain that perkiness, but are happy with their current breast size, breast lifts have become increasingly popular. The procedure is also often offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
