The circumstances for a breast reduction surgery are unique compared to breast augmentation, lift and other procedures. The reason being that an individual usually selects to reduce the size of their breasts due to pain. Neck and back pain, sagging breasts and lack of ability to fully enjoy daily life due to larger breasts can all lead to breast reduction surgery. Oftentimes, females with very large breasts have a hard time participating in physical activities, so this procedure offers relief from limitations as well as a cosmetic change. With mammoplasty surgery, the breasts become smaller and lighter, decreasing one’s physical limitations.
This breast reduction or mammoplasty procedure is simple. Typically, the incision is made around the areola. After the excess skin is removed, the nipple is repositioned and the breast is re-shaped.
