Benefits of Pairing a Breast Lift with a Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery can be an important, life changing procedure. Many women having a breast reduction are doing so to prevent chronic back and shoulder pain. Although having smaller breasts is the ultimate goal, you also want your breasts to look natural and perky. Pairing your breast reduction procedure with a breast lift will help ensure your new look is attractive as well as beneficial.

Sagging Breasts

Most women who have large breasts have some sagging. While the breast reduction will remove weight, tissue, and even skin to make your breasts smaller, some sagging could still be evident without adding a breast lift to the procedure. The breast lift will give you perkier, firmer breasts.

Nipple Placement

With a breast reduction, the nipples often fall to a less natural location with the decrease of volume. This necessitates moving the nipples up, a procedure that is part of a breast lift. By pairing a breast reduction with a breast lift, you can maximize your results and eliminate the need for any additional surgeries.  

Appearance Is Important

Your primary goal in a breast reduction may be comfort, but remember that appearance is important as well. Even though it will add to your procedure, recovery, and expenses, a breast lift is really a must for most women going through a breast reduction. A reduction without a lift will not leave you with perky, natural-looking breasts.
