Breast Reduction Surgery | Reduction Mammaplasty
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of breast tissue and reshaping of the breast.
Breast reduction plastic surgery is an option for women who are trying to ease the physical symptoms caused by the weight of excessively large breasts. This procedure is called 'reduction mammaplasty' and is similar to breast lift surgery.
Incisions are made around the areola, down the breast and along the natural curve of the breast crease. Healthy women of any age can have breast reduction surgery. It is recommended to wait until breast development, child birth and breastfeeding have stopped. All of these can have unpredictable effects on breast shape.
Breast reduction plastic surgery can be used to balance the size and shape of significantly unequal breasts. The complete Breast Reduction pamphlet is available from your cosmetic surgeon Mr Murray Beagley.
