Breast Reduction surgery addresses the decrease of volume of the breasts. Although considered a cosmetic surgery, breast reduction is chosen by patients because they want to have a more active lifestyle without back pain.
The breast reduction surgery is clinically known as a reduction mammaplasty. The surgeon will focus on removing excess breast fat, tissue and skin in order to achieve the size that best fits your body.
Your breast reduction surgery success begins by selecting a surgeon you can trust. You and your surgeon can discuss your expectations and goals and address any questions or concerns you may have regarding your surgery.
A trusted surgeon will want to discuss your lifestyle and overall health. Like any other surgery, there may be complications associated with a breast reduction surgery. Your cosmetic surgeon will discuss the details of the procedure and guide you along the process.
