I am only 4 feet 11 inches tall and my breasts are a size 36C. They hang very low from having two children. What would be best for me, a breast lift or a breast reduction?
I would suggest a breast lift using the vertical incision. The scar will be around the nipple with a vertical scar coming from the underside of the breast mound. The vertical scar comes from the 6 o’clock position of the pigmented area of the breast (the areola) and ends at the natural breast fold. It does not matter whether it is a breast lift or a breast reduction. The difference is in the amount of tissue removed; however, both will lift the nipple and the areola complexes. You will look naturally proportional with a large B cup size.
