I have minimal sagging and I'm only 22 I want my breast a bit more perkier. I assumed a areola reduction would also lift from having the sew the smaller areola to the breast pulling them together to meet. Will this procedure lift my breast slightly?

Areola reductions do not create significant lift

An areolar reduction will not give the lift you need. You will need either a circumvertical or an anchor pattern breast lift.
Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast lifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Although an areolar reduction lifts the breasts, you would not get an adequate amount of lift from an areolar reduction alone. You really need a full breast lift to improve the shape of your breasts.

I would recommend a true breast lift instead of an areola reduction. In the end, you 'll be much happier with the improved shape and repositioned nipple / areolas !

Areola reduction will give it some lift
Hello and thank you for your question
An Arellano reduction in and of itself does not lift the breast. You actually could use a breast loft though and with it, you'd have an Areopagus reduction. I recommend that you seek out a board certified plastic surgeon for a consultation regarding your situation. .
