Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is an invasive procedure that removes fat, skin, and tissue while lifting the breasts. The result is a more streamlined, younger-looking bust.

The most common method of reducing breast volume requires three incisions: one around the areola (a periareolar incision), another running vertically from the bottom of the areola to the crease underneath the breast, and a third following the natural line of the breast crease.The surgeon removes the excess tissue and fat through these incisions before lifting the nipple and areola to a higher position. The size of the areola may also be reduced, and liposuction might be used to adjust the contour.
