A breast reduction (or reduction mammoplasty) and mastopexy are very similar procedures. Each results in a lifted breast. With the reduction, more tissue is removed for a smaller post-operative size. Any plastic surgeon will tell you these are some of the happiest patients ever! I like patients to shop for a “goal bra”, which is the bra they would love to fit into after surgery. You have to be sure the band width fits comfortably, and then look at different cup sizes within that band width to find the one that best suits your frame. While insurance may cover some reductions, I only perform cosmetic breast reductions and do not accept insurance.
