Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)

Reduction mammaplasty is the technical name for breast reduction, surgery that reduces the size of your breasts by removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin.

As with other forms of cosmetic plastic surgery, you need to have a clear and realistic idea of why you want the surgery and what you hope to look like after it. You should discuss your expectations with your surgeon. Although many women have breast reductions to cure physical discomfort, the surgery will change your appearance, and it’s important to understand that changing your appearance can’t solve all of the difficulties that you might face in life.

It’s also important to note that breast reduction surgery removes many of the milk ducts in the breast, and is not recommended for women who want to breast feed.
