The shape of breasts alter over time. Just like the rest of your skin the breasts lose elasticity as you age. Weight changes can also cause changes in breast shape. Furthermore, motherhood (pregnancy and breastfeeding) are very common causes of breast shape change or breast sagging. Sagging and an overall loss of perkiness can be the outcome. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and simply want back their youthful shape. Breast lifts need two procedures to be performed in tandem. First the excess skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. For a complete explanation of exactly what will be required in your unique situation, you will want to speak with your plastic surgeon. Each woman is unique, and this means each breast lift will be unique as well. As many women are looking to regain that perkiness, but are happy with their current breast size, breast lifts have become increasingly commonplace. The procedure is also often offered in addition to tummy tucks as part of a mommy makeover.
