Breast Reduction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess breast tissue.
Breast Reduction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess breast tissue. It's an option for women who are trying to relieve the physical symptoms caused by the weight of overly large breasts. Having large breasts can be harmful to women's health, confidence and self-esteem. It can cause neck, upper back and shoulder pain as well as pain between the shoulder blades. In addition, bra straps dig into the shoulders, leaving deep grooves.
This procedure is also called reduction mammoplasty. Excessive skin and breast tissue are removed, and the breast tissue and nipple are lifted, reshaped and repositioned. This leads to a more proportional sized, more youthful and aesthetic shape. In most breast reduction procedures, the nipples and areolas (dark skin around the nipple) stay attached to their blood and nerve supply while they are repositioned. However, in rare cases, when the breasts are extremely large and droopy, the nipples and areola may have to be repositioned as a nipple graft.
The scars are positioned so they are as hidden as possible, even if low cut clothing is worn. The resultant scars will be red initially and will take six months to one year to fade. During this period, scar management is mandatory.
Pedicle refers to the tissue that keeps the blood supply to the nipple after removing the excess breast tissue. The blood supply to this pedicle usually originates from the above and medial part of the breast. In this technique a superior and medial fullness of the breast is achieved resulting in an enhanced breast cleavage.
