Breast reduction surgically reduces the size and reshapes overly large breasts.
It is indicated for treating the disproportions in body measurements as well as treating back and shoulder pain caused from the large and heavy breasts.
Skin incisions are hidden around the areola and in most cases a vertical incision from the areola to the infra-mammary fold is also necessary.
Breast reduction surgery is done under general anesthesia and an overnight stay might be necessary.
Recovery depends on the extent of the procedure and the breast volume that is removed. Light activities can commence from the 1st post-op day with full recovery within 2-3 weeks.
Results are long-term although changes in body weight, pregnancy and aging can alter your appearance.
