Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of overly large breasts. Overly large breasts can cause health issues and emotional problems for some women. In addition to self image issues, it can also cause physical pain and discomfort.
Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body.
Breast reduction can be done under general anaesthesia. Modern anaesthesia is safe and effective, but does have some risks. Your surgeon and/or anaesthetist will ask you about all the medications you are taking or have taken, and any allergies you may have. Make sure you have an up to date list before the surgery.
