Breast reduction & lift:
Procedure of breast reduction aims to: eliminate the symptoms related with oversized breasts.

The primary goal of breast lift: improved contour of the breasts.
While breast reduction and breast lift (mastopexy) have different goals, they are very similar procedures. Both involve incisions around the nipple areolae (to lift the nipples and reduce the size of the areolae) and the lower breasts. Both involve removal of excess skin from the lower breasts. Both involve repositioning of the breast tissues. And both involve lifting of the breasts.
