Depending on the type of breast lift performed, the breast size stays about the same or slightly smaller than what you started out with.
Thank you for your question. Without a photo it is difficult to really see where you are, but it sounds like you need a breast lift. Most women following a lift feel like their breasts are smaller even though no breast tissue was removed. With a breast implant you can have the shape and form you desire.. Your plastic surgeon in consult will be able to help you find the right implant to achieve your goals. If you really do not want an implant, fat grafting can be used to help with shape and fulness of your breasts. I hope all goes well with your surgery.

Will breast lift decrease breast size
During a mastopexy some breast tissue is removed and therefore most breasts a slightly smaller but better positioned on the chest wall. For those wanting upper pole volume an implant or fat transfer can be used for augmentation.
Thank you for your question! While a breast lift can help reposition the breasts, this procedure is typically only performed when significant sagging has occurred. To determine if you require a breast lift, your board-certified plastic surgeon will examine the placement of the nipple in relation to crease of the breast to determine if a lift is needed. While a breast lift alters the shape of your breasts, a shift in volume can occur. Since you would not like to lose your volume, a breast augmentation may ideal for a more full effect. The addition of breast implants can create fullness in the upper pole areas. Depending on your goals and the look you would like to achieve, as well as the elasticity of your skin, please advise with a board-certified plastic surgeon to make your decision.
Breast lift does not change breast size
A breast lift reshapes and lifts breast tissue without removing any natural breast tissue, therefore my patients' breasts remain the exact same size after surgery as before surgery.
Hope this is helpful!
Will having a breast lift make your breast smaller, bigger, or stay the same size?
Thank you for your question.A lift alone certainly will give a perky
appearance; however, a lift will not change the volume of your breast tissue.If you are looking for more volume, it would
be wise to consider breast augmentation.I recommend that you consult with a board certified plastic
Your cup size does not have to change with a breast lift but some breast tissue does need to be removed in order to effectively perform the lift. The plastic surgeon can control the amount of tissue that is removed. Since you are already a DD cup size, I would not suggest adding any more volume to your breast (implants). Consult with a plastic surgeon in person for more detailed information.
Will undergoing a breast lift make my breasts smaller?
It depends on your tissue quality and excess skin available when considering The Horndeski Method breast lift. I have attached a video that briefly shows how excess tissue is removed for proper shape and molding. THM does not require the ugly vertical incision or breast implants to give women upper pole fullness and improved cleavage. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your questions. Breast Lift is among one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. A breast lift addresses sagging and uneven breasts,
decreased breast volume and drooping nipples and stretched areolas, recreating
a youthful shape and lift to your breasts. If there is too little or too much
breast volume, a breast augmentation or breast reduction might be recommended
in addition to a lift. Every year, thousands of women undergo successful
breast-lift surgery, experience no major problems and are pleased with the
results.Most patients that receive a breast lift go down approximately one cup size. Best of Luck!
They will be smaller- kind of....
With a breast lift, your
overall cup size will likely go down, but by how much is yet to be determined. Keep
in mind that your breasts will become more dense (like when you were younger-
which is desirable) by keeping the same mass (weight or amount of tissue),
but decreasing the volume that they take up (cup size).
Density = Mass / Volume
The tighter your lift, the denser your breasts and the smaller the cup size you
will ultimately have. Communicate your goals directly and without
hesitation to your plastic surgeon. From your vantage point, your breasts will be fuller and project off your chest more, so you will likely think they are bigger. Remember though, we are talking 3-dimensionally. Hope this helps.
