Breast Reduction

The Quick Facts about Breast Reduction

Length of Breast Reduction Procedure: 2 to 3 hours

Anesthesia: Local, with sedation, or general

In or Outpatient Procedure: Usually outpatient

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is designed to reduce the size of the breasts and create a more attractive breast shape and form. Large breasts can cause a woman breast, back, shoulder, and neck pain, posture problems, shoulder grooves from bra straps, and skin rashes under the breasts. Women with extremely large breasts often also suffer emotional embarrassment and are limited in a number of physical activities. The goal is to make the breast size more proportional to the rest of the body, and relieve physical and emotional discomforts.

This procedure removes excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue, resulting in smaller, lighter and firmer breasts that are better-shaped in proportion to the rest of the body.*

Predefined incisions are made on the breast, and excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue are removed. The nipple is then elevated to its new position on the breast mound, and the remaining tissues are closed around it. Some liposuction of adjacent areas may be performed at the same time to improve the shape of the new breast. Schedule a consultation today!
