The surgical methods used for breast lifts and breast reductions are very similar. While it is primarily overstretched skin that is removed during a breast lift, this is supplemented by the removal of excessive gland and fatty tissue for a breast reduction. The areolas are each lifted and, where necessary, reduced. Breasts that are different sizes are balanced. A breast lift can also be combined with a breast augmentation upon request. We’ll select the right surgical technique to give you firm and shapely breasts with the least possible scarring.
