Liposuction to Lift Breast?

Based on your description of your breast size and goals, it is unlikely that liposuction surgery is indicated. You will likely require skin removal in order to achieve breast lifting.

Best wishes.

Liposuction does not lift the breast..

Liposuction is designed to decrease the volume of the breast. This will have very little effect on the nipple position or skin envelope and in fact may worsen the problem.

Liposuction of breasts

Liposuction of the breasts will only decrease the volume. It will not lift the breasts significantly.
