Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that is performed under general anesthesia and aims to reduce the size of the breasts and at the same time, lift them. In all cases, an incision is made around and below the nipple. In large breasts, the surgeon makes an incision parallel to the submammary fold at the same time. That is, at the point where the breast ends and the abdomen begins. In many cases, breast reduction is combined with a mommy makeover with impressive results for the psychology and quality of life of the woman.
Breast reduction – Purpose of the surgery
The goal should be to position the nipple higher and fill the upper pole of the breast while reducing its volume.
Small imperfections may appear such as a visible scar. Such imperfections can be corrected with local anesthesia after the first year after surgery.
Complications in plastic surgery operations are not common but it is necessary to be aware of them at the first appointment.
