Breast lift surgery, formally known as mastopexy, is a popular procedure intended to remove excess skin tissue from the breasts in order to reduce sagging. Sometimes a mastopexy will also include areola reduction to correct unbalanced or overstretched areolae. There are several factors that can result in disproportionate areolae.
Childbirth, age, genes, dramatic weight loss, and surgical procedures like breast augmentations or reductions can all contribute to uneven or enlarged areolae. Breastfeeding can also be a major contributing factor. Areola reductions are often performed in conjunction with breast lift surgery, since they are likely to be affected in the process.
