Does having a breast lift reduce the size of your breasts?
breast liftmastopexy

Hi,
I was wondering if having a breast lift without implants would also reduce the size of the breasts? I'm very embarrased about my saggy breasts and would like to have a breast lift (definitely without implants though) but it would be disheartening to go through the big surgery and not be happy with them if they end up smaller. Does this usually happen? I'm a 36C by the way.
Thanks

Both procedures have a different name for a reason.
One reduces the breast and the other lifts it (without loss of volume)
Good luck from NYC (more)
