Yes.: Breast reduction surgery “automatically” involves breast lifting; in other words, the breasts (as well as the nipple/areola complexes) are raised on the chest wall at the same time as the breasts are reduced in size. Breast reduction surgery, for many reasons, tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform.

Breast reductions is a operation designed to reduce the size of a woman's breast to make her more comfortable. But one of the added benefits is that we typically lift the breast at the same time. So the operations are v ry similar. However a breast lift will always be considered a cosmetic operation, while a breast reduction is usually covered by insurance.
