As with many parts of the body after pregnancy, the breasts continue to age with time causing the nipple to descend and the volume of the breast to decrease overtime.

Some patients may request a breast augmentation at the same time as a breast lift.
What is a breast lift
In medical terms, a breast lift is known as a mastopexy surgery in which the breast tissue is re-contoured to elevate the breast mound and reposition the nipple and areola. Unlike a breast augmentation, a breast lift procedure alone does not increase the volume or size of the breast .
