Breasts tend to lose their youthful shape and firmness over time. This is due to aging, aggravated by the effects of gravity, pregnancy, breast-feeding and weight fluctuations. The size of the areolas (the pigmented skin around the nipples) also tends to increase with time.
A breast lift, otherwise known as a mastopexy, reshapes and lifts the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding breast tissue. The size of the areolas can be easily reduced with this procedure.
