Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction, or Reduction Mammaplasty, is performed for physical relief or cosmetic reasons. Symptoms from overly large breasts may include: back, neck, shoulder pain, and headaches. This procedure involves removal of excess breast tissue to reshape and lift the breasts.

The incision encircles the areola, extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. Excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin are removed. The nipple and areola are reduced and repositioned and the breast is re-shaped.

Procedure Time: 3 - 4 hours

Recovery Time: 1 week
