Breast sag due to age and pregnancy. In breast lift or mastopexy operation, drooping and sagging breasts are tightened, recontoured and lifted up, giving them a younger appearance. Also the nipple and the areola are located higher to give a younger and normal look. If necessary, the size of the areola is also reduced at the same time. The scars following surgery are usually faded well with time and become barely visible in most patients.
