Although the goals of breast reduction and breast uplift procedures are different, the pre-operative preparation, surgical incision, and postoperative course are quite similar. In both procedures, incisions are designed to create a more youthful and natural shaped breast. In both procedures, this involves elevating the nipple/areola complex to a more natural position on the center of the breast mound.
