A woman’s breasts can change over time. The loss of the skin’s natural elasticity due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, gravity and aging can have a negative impact on the appearance of a woman’s breasts. These will often cause the breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness.
A breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure that raises and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the tissue to reshape and support the breast. The procedure can also reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple). Breast implants can be inserted in conjunction with a breast lift / mastopexy procedure to increase both firmness and size.
