In brief: Breast Reduction

Also known as reduction mammoplasty, this is an operation intended to reduce the size of a woman’s breasts and improve their shape and position.
Frequently, the areola (dark skin around the nipple) is also made smaller. For more info: http://www.pacificcenterplasticsurgery.com/breast-procedures-newport-beach/reduction/

Making breasts smaller can be carried out by plastic surgeons who specialize in breast surgery.
During consultation they will assess how best to address this issue for you.They will discuss the risks, benefits ; limitations at length ; measure your chest ; breasts in sitting position. You will likely have a baseline mammogram prior to the surgery.You will wear a support bra for a few weeks.
