Breast Lift or Breast Reduction: What Should I Opt For?


January 6, 2023

Everything You Need To Know Before Deciding Between a Breast Lift or Breast Reduction

Choosing between a breast lift and a breast reduction can be daunting. It’s important to know the differences between the two procedures and understand the pros and cons of each option. Let’s break down the key differences between these two types of surgery so you can make an informed decision on what’s best for you.  

Breast Lift vs. Breast Reduction 

Breast Lift

A breast lift is designed to reshape breasts by lifting them higher on your chest wall, repositioning the nipples and tightening the skin around them. This procedure does not reduce the size of your breasts; it just lifts them up, so they look fuller and more youthful. A breast lift aims to give you firmer, perkier breasts that look natural in proportion with your body. 

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction is designed to reduce the size of large or heavy breasts causing physical pain or discomfort, such as back pain, neck pain, headaches or skin irritation. During this procedure, excess fat and tissue will be removed to reduce their size while maintaining their shape as much as possible. After surgery, people who have had a breast reduction often experience less physical discomfort and can lead a happier, more comfortable life.

Which Option Is Right For You? 

The answer depends on what you want out of a surgical procedure. If you’re looking to improve the appearance of sagging breasts without reducing their size significantly, then a breast lift may be right for you. On the other hand, if you’re looking for more dramatic changes, such as reducing the overall size or alleviating physical discomfort due to large or heavy breasts, then a breast reduction may be better suited for your needs. Ultimately it is important to talk with your doctor about which option will provide optimal results for your specific goals and expectations from surgery.
