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. Changes in breast shape and “perkiness” can also be effected by pregnancy, breastfeeding and also changes in bodyweight. This can result in a dramatic loss of “perkiness” or sagging that a large number of women want to remedy. If you are still happy with your breast shape and size, but want to correct the sagging discussed …a breast lift may be right for you. This is achieved with a breast lift that works in two ways. First excess skin is removed and then the 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 plastic surgeon. Each woman is unique, and this means every breast lift will be unique as well. The popularity of breast lifts has increased quite a bit over recent years. This less dramatic surgery can help achieve that youthful breast look without the need for more traditional breast implants. The surgery is also commonly offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
