Breast reduction, also called reduction mammaplasty, enhances your overall appearance by making your breasts more proportional to the rest of your body.

Large, heavy breasts often interfere with normal physical activities. They can cause back pain, postural problems, deformities of the back and shoulders, skin rashes and breast pain. In addition to alleviating physical problems, breast reduction improves the sagging shape of your breasts and nipple areas.

The operation is performed under general anaesthesia with one to two-nights hospital stay. A commonly performed breast reduction technique uses incisions that encircle the areola and then extend vertically down the breast and horizontally along the crease underneath the breast.

The resulting scars are permanent but will fade to some extent over time. Possible complications of a breast reduction include nipple and areola sensitivity changes and wound healing.
