Breast reduction surgery or mammoplasty is a procedure to reduce the weight and volume of the breasts to alleviate the pain, discomfort and aesthetic concerns associated with heavy, drooping breasts. The benefits of a breast reduction surgery include improved ease of movement for physical activities, more clothing options with a better fit, relief from back and shoulder pain, and alleviation of skin irritation.

How It Works
Surgical markings will be placed on the breasts, usually a lollipop shape around the nipple and a vertical line below. Once the incisions are made, fat, glandular tissue and skin is removed and the remaining breast and nipple is repositioned. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with this procedure. The overall effect is to reduce the size and weight of the breasts and restore them to a firm, taut and lifted state.
