What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Technically known as mammaplasty, breast reduction is a surgery to reduce the size of the breasts and improve the quality of life of the patient. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) places breast reduction in the category of reconstructive (not cosmetic) surgery, as it is performed to correct a physical problem.

In this procedure, the surgeon removes excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin to create a breast size in proportion and balance with your body. This can alleviate health issues and discomfort associated with overly large breasts. Breast reduction can also produce dramatic aesthetic benefits along with improved confidence and self-esteem.

Reasons to Have Breast Reduction

Women who have large breasts in proportion to a smaller frame often experience a range of problems that can corrected or alleviated with breast reduction, including the following issues:

  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain from supporting the weight of the breasts
  • Grooves in the shoulders from heavy breasts pulling down on the bra straps
  • Poor posture from the weight of the breasts on the chest
  • Skin rashes and irritation on the underside of the breasts
  • Sagging caused by gravity and the extra weight of the breasts
  • Limitations on physical activities, including exercise
  • Unwanted attention from the opposite sex
  • Difficulty finding bras and clothes to fit correctly

Breast reduction can also produce significant cosmetic benefits. It can improve the size, shape, and appearance of overly large breasts, correct asymmetry, and create a more appealing, aesthetically pleasing physique.

Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Through carefully placed incisions, Dr. Kahng will remove excess fat, tissue, and skin, and lift and reshape the breasts. Sutures will be layered deep within the tissue to support newly sculpted breasts and to close the incisions.

Depending on your breast tissue and aesthetic goals, incisions may be placed:

  • Around the areola;
  • Around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease; or
  • In an anchor shape – around the areola; vertically down to the breast crease; and across the fold hidden in the breast crease
