The shape of breasts change over time. Just like the rest of your skin the breasts lose elasticity as you get older. Changes in breast shape and “perkiness” can also be effected by pregnancy, breastfeeding and also changes in weight. The result are breasts that lack their previous perkiness. 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”. The exact areas affected and procedures that would be performed to reach your desired result will be unique to you. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to explain this to you fully. As many women are looking to regain that perkiness, but are happy with their current breast size, breast lifts have become more and more popular. You might 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 series of surgeries 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.
