This is a popular question among many prospective breast reduction patients. To cut to the chase, every breast reduction includes a breast lift!

During breast lift surgery, incisions will typically be made circumferentially around the areola, vertically in the lower aspect of the breast, and horizontally along the inframammary fold of the breast.

My Unique Technique for Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery has traditionally (and still commonly today) been performed using an inferior pedicle wise approach. With this technique, most of the tissue removed comes from the top of the breast while tissue on the bottom of the breast is saved to support circulation to the nipple.
