Over time, your breasts change shape and normal sagging can occur. This is not unlike the skin covering the rest of your body. The elasticity of all skin goes down over time, and this is no different for the skin of your breasts. Changes in breast shape and “perkiness” can also be effected by pregnancy, breastfeeding and also changes in weight. The outcome are breasts that have lost their previous perkiness. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and simply want back their youthful shape. The goal perky, non-saggy, appearance is achieved by removing excess skin and then tightening the breast tissue. For a complete explanation of exactly what will be required in your specific situation, you will want to talk with your plastic surgeon. Each woman is unique, and this means each breast lift will be unique to you. The popularity of breast lifts has increased dramatically over the years. This more minimalist surgery can assist in achieving that youthful breast appearance without the need for more traditional breast implants. You may be familiar with the term “mommy makeover” as this group of surgeries has grown in popularity over the years. A mommy makeover is a term for a combination of procedures all performed at the same time to regain the youthful look often times lost after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover usually consists of breast implants, a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
