Breast Reduction Vs Breast Lift

Both breast reduction and Breast lift are about re-positioning the nipple areolar complex to a more appropriate level (above the Inframammary fold), tightening the breast tissue and removal of excess skin.  In breast lift, only a small amount of tissue is removed for shaping purpose but in breast reduction, a more significant volume is removed to actually changed the cup size of the breast.  To simplify matters, breast reduction surgery is a breast uplift procedure but with a significant changes in breast volume with removal of tissue.

Breast reduction is all about the volume of the breasts, but a breast lift is more concerned with shape.
When you have a breast lift performed, the surgeon will alter the overall appearance of the breasts, typically repositioning the nipple. This is a procedure we recommend for women who have noticed some sagging whether due to age, maternity, or breastfeeding. It’s a way to have your breasts look younger and perkier,
