In addition to the above oversized breasts can be reduced or trimmed to its natural or balanced size. As well as sagged breasts can be lifted up. A breast lift is a proven, effective way to elevate the breast on the chest wall, reposition the nipple and areola (the pigmented area around the nipple). A breast lift may be done alone or in combination with enlargement of the breast for patients seeking additional volume of the breast. When implants are used as part of the procedure, the procedure is known as a breast augmentation.
