Are you like many women who have heavy, oversized breasts that cause daily pain and discomfort? You may be considering breast reduction already but do not know if you can qualify for breast reduction. So, how do you if you are a candidate for breast reduction?
How Does Breast Reduction Work?
Also known as a reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction is an outpatient surgery that takes around 2-3 hours. Glandular tissue, skin, and fat will be removed during the procedure. The surgery reduces the weight of the breasts, making them appear firmer and smaller. They also will feel lighter.
Breast reduction surgery primarily reduces breast size and can also reduce the areolas’ size, which is the skin surrounding the nipples.
