Breast Reduction, or alternatively known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removed excess skin and fat to reduce the size of breasts, making them feel lighter, lifted and ultimately an improved shape.
This procedure can reduce discomfort that large breasts can cause, such as backache, neck or shoulder pain, inflamed skin, and inability to exercise coherently. Furthermore, women can opt for this procedure to enhance physical appearance to make their breasts proportionally better sized for their body.
In medical terms, large breasts can contribute to hernia, rash, and pain in the spinal or cervical disk. People with such issues demands immediate functional improvement instead of aesthetic considerations.
Breast reduction makes it possible to lift and downsize the breasts nicely. You need to take into account before you have this surgery is that it will involve getting scar marks. Unfortunately, there is no chance of doing this surgery without leaving a scar on your body with today's medical technology and techniques. A T-shaped scar will be left upside down when you see the breast from the front.
Under general anesthesia, the excess tissue in the breasts and skin are removed and the nipple with remaining breast tissue is taken to the correct position.
