Breast reduction surgery (reduction mammaplasty/mammoplasty) is a cosmetic procedure to remove excess skin and tissue from the breasts. While most patients undergo surgery for both breasts, the operation is also used to create symmetrical breasts. Typically, the excess breast tissue is removed through cuts on the lower part of the breasts and the nipples are moved to suit the new shape. The skin is reshaped and the cuts are closed with stitches (which may be dissolvable) and your breasts are wrapped in a special supportive dressing or support bra.
