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. Weight changes can also cause changes in breast shape. Additionally, motherhood (pregnancy and breastfeeding) are very common causes of breast shape change and breast sagging. The result are breasts that have lost their former perkiness. In the event you’re still happy with your breast shape and size, but want to correct the sagging discussed …a breast lift may be right for you. Breast lifts require two procedures to be performed together. First the excess skin is removed and then breast tissue is “tightened”. For a complete explanation of exactly what will be needed in your unique situation, you’ll want to speak with your cosmetic surgeon. Each woman is unique, and this means every breast lift will be unique to you. Breast lifts have grown in popularity as a minimalist alternative to more traditional breast augmentation. Breast lifts are often paired with tummy tucks, liposuction and breast implants as part of a “mommy makeover”.
