Over time, the effects of gravity along with the loss of the skin's natural elasticity begin to have an effect on the appearance of a woman's breasts.  These factors, combined with pregnancies and nursing, will often cause the breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts.  The procedure can also reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple).  Breast implants inserted in conjunction with a mastopexy procedure can increase both firmness and size.
