Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and of course, the force of gravity take their toll on a woman's breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts at least, for a time, as no surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity.
Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume - after pregnancy, for example - breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.
