Why is breast reduction surgery done?

Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure done to give smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of the body and to reduce the size of the areola. This is achieved by the removal of fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts.

How is breast reduction surgery done?

  • Incisions are made circling the areola, extending downwards along the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. 
  • The new location of the nipple is defined by a key-hole shaped incision above the areola.
  • The excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin are removed and the nipple and areola are moved into their new position.
  • If the breasts are very large, the nipples and areolas may have to be detached from the blood vessels and nerves to be grafted into a higher position.
  • Finally the skin from both sides of the breast is brought down around the areola, shaping the new contour of the breasts. The incisions are sutured and the breast bandaged for healing
