Breast reduction or ‘reduction mammoplasty’ is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces the size of breasts that are overly large in proportion to a person’s frame.
Breast reductions are carried out on both men and women and can help people gain a more positive outlook on life and feel more comfortable and confident in their own skin. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and tissue (fat and glandular tissue) and the repositioning of the nipples.
Breasts are reshaped to normal contours to suit their reduced size. The end result is usually lighter, firmer, shapelier breasts better proportioned to one’s size and frame.
