For women with health problems due to large breasts, a breast reduction can help. By removing excessive breast weight, it can help relieve various physical symptoms.

How breast reduction is performed
Your surgeon will administer general anaesthesia during the procedure to prevent any discomfort. Once the anaesthesia has taken effect, your surgeon will make an incision in your breasts. The incision technique will depend on the amount of breast tissue. Your surgeon will then remove excess skin, fat, and tissue from your breasts. If you have uneven breasts, your surgeon may remove more tissue from the larger breast. The position of the nipple and areola are also adjusted to achieve better balance. Once the desired breast appearance is achieved, your surgeon will close the incisions. Surgical drains may be inserted into your breasts to prevent fluid build-up. Your surgeon will then cover the incision lines with clean dressing to protect them.
