A photo would help answer the question as it specifically applies to you. The breast mound itself will not move with a lift, but the nipples and areolas can be moved together to a limited extent, and implants can centralize the breast projection, also within limits. 

Best would be an in person consultation with a plastic surgeon.When you are ready for an in person consultation, RealSelf has listings of surgeons in your area. You should consider cross referencing the listings from the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (plasticsurgery dot org). A listing in the ASPS website assures you that your surgeon is not only board certified,  but also is a member in good standing of the major plastic surgery organization in the U. S. Thank you for your question, best wishes.

Moving your breasts together

through surgery can be done as mentioned by my colleagues.  There are many variables you have to consider and this requires an exam by your chosen physician.  Implants can easily close the gap between breasts but you need to focus on your nipple location.  If your nipples are pointing outwards, they have to be moved as is done with a lift so it is located centrally over your breast mound.  Again a plan can only be devised after you have seen your surgeon and allowed him/her to examine you and listen to your desires.  You should also know what your surgeon's revision policy as revisions are quite common if you are doing a lift and augmentation at the same time.

Surgery to Make your Breast Closer Together

Yes, this can be done during a breast augmentation where the implant pockets are made closer together therfore making your breast move closer together. Bring your breast closer together can also be done with a breast lift, however the base of the breast will not be closer together as much as the projection will be.

Yes, there are several methods to do this. If you are happy with the size of your breasts, then a breast lift moving your own tissue into a higher and more medial (closer together) position will work.


If you would like larger breasts, using breast implants is a nice way to accomplish your goal while increasing the volume.

The simple answer is Yes, a breast lift, also called mastopexy can not only lift your breasts but also move them close together for better cleavage and or symmetry purposes. This is a common request.

Sometimes with wider implants, the breasts can look closer together. But remember, you are limited by your underlying anatomy.
