What is breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction (mammoplasty) surgery involves removal of breast tissue and skin to decrease the size of the breast. Plastic Surgery is used to re-shape the breasts to make them smaller. The nipple is then reshaped and repositioned so it is in line with the middle of the upper arm.
Male breast reduction is similar and can be found in the gynecomastia section.
Benefits of breast reduction
Women with naturally larger breasts often suffer from pains in their neck, back and shoulders – a breast reduction can significantly alleviate this discomfort. Breast reductions can also correct uneven sized breasts but are also an option for women who would just prefer smaller, more shapely breasts.
Details of the procedure
The purpose of reduction mammoplasty is the removal of tissue and skin from the breast which is then re-shaped to make the breast smaller. Sometimes the nipple may also need to be repositioned so it is in the proper position.
