A breast lift, or mastopexy, is performed to return youthful shape and lift to breasts that have sagged as a result of fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, loss of the skin’s natural elasticity, or simply the effects of gravity. The breast tissue is elevated, excess skin is removed, and the nipple and areola is moved to a higher position. The size of the areola can be reduced, and the lift can be combined with a breast implant for added volume and firmness (a very popular procedure).
