Over time, your breasts change shape and natural sagging can occur. This is not unlike the skin covering the rest of your body. The elasticity of all skin decreases 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. This can result in a dramatic loss of “perkiness” or sagging that a large number of women want to remedy. Many women are happy with the size and shape of their former breasts and merely want back their youthful shape. Breast lifts require two procedures to be done together. First the extra skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. For a complete explanation of exactly what will be required in your specific situation, you will want to speak with your cosmetic surgeon. Every woman is unique, and this means each breast lift will be unique to you. The popularity of breast lifts has grown quite a bit over the years. This less dramatic surgery can assist in achieving that youthful breast appearance without the need for more traditional breast augmentation. You might be familiar with the term “mommy makeover” as this group of surgeries has grown in popularity over the years. A mommy makeover is a name for a series of procedures all done at the same time to regain the youthful appearance sometimes lost after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover usually consists of breast implants, a breast lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
