Can I have a Breast Reduction & Breast Lift in One Procedure?

Can I have a Breast Reduction & Lift in One Procedure?

Breast reduction surgery is a procedure which reduces or evens out the size of the breasts which could be having a negative effect on not only your posture, but you may suffer from physical symptoms such as back pain.

Surgically known as a reduction mammoplasty, the procedure involves removing fat and skin, and sometimes the reshaping of the breasts, to result in a smaller, more manageable size.

A breast uplift, also known as a mastopexy or a ‘boob lift’, is plastic surgery that reshapes your natural breasts to create a firmer feel and position them higher than they were before.

Together, they ensure your bust looks firmer and more youthful whilst creating a more appealing silhouette.

A breast reduction and a breast uplift ensure your bust looks firmer and more youthful.

Breast reduction surgery alleviates the pain and discomfort large breasts bring and gives women a much-needed confidence boost. There are a number of different techniques that can be used in breast reduction. The operation involves making incision around the nipple, vertically down to the lower fold of the breast and perhaps along the fold itself.

Can a breast lift and breast reduction can be performed at the same time?

A breast lift and reduction can be performed at the same time. This means that in one procedure, we can:

    • Remove unnecessary breast fat and skin
    • Reshape the breasts for better contouring
    • Reposition the nipple and areola for a perkier appearance
    • Reduce the areola, if desired

Although a breast lift is a secondary aspect of the breast reduction surgery, it’s the best way for us to tighten skin around your newly-reduced chest. Your breasts will then look more natural both in and out of your clothes.

What’s the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction?

Breast reduction focuses on making the breasts smaller while a breast lift trims away excess skin to reshape and raise breasts.

Pairing the procedures will give you an improved silhouette giving you a tighter, smoother contour and smaller breasts.
