Reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction) is used to reduce the volume of breasts which cause discomfort, physical pain, or skin irritation. The surgery can be performed using different techniques, with different incisions, including the vertical incision and the inverted T incision. The choice of technique and extent of the scars are evaluated at the time of physical examination by plastic surgeon.
Issues to be discussed include the possibility of sensitivity to changes in the breast, and difficulty or inability to breastfeed after surgery. If you plan to become pregnant, it is better to get pregnant before submitting to this procedure. It will be essential that the patient maintain their weight after the surgery.
