Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size of large breasts, making them smaller and more proportionate to the rest of the body.

Breast Reduction- The Procedure
Breast reduction is an outpatient procedure most often performed with general anesthesia. The most common incision used for breast reduction is an anchor-shaped one. This incision runs in a circle around the areola, extends vertically down to the crease beneath the breast, and then runs horizontally along the breast crease. Through this incision, excess fat, glandular tissue and skin are removed, the nipple-areolar complex is moved to a higher position and, if necessary, large areolas are reduced in size. The incisions are then closed.
After Breast Reduction Surgery: What to Expect
After surgery, gauze and a surgical bra are placed on the breasts and these are typically worn for several days. If drains are inserted at the incision sites these are removed within a few days. Patients may experience some discomfort and this can be alleviated with medication. Swelling and bruising are common but will fade in time. Most patients find that they can return to work and other normal activities within approximately two weeks, though exercise and strenuous activities should be curtailed for three to four weeks.
