How is a breast reduction done?

In breast reduction surgery, your surgeon will make incisions around the areola and down the front of each breast and remove excess fat, tissue, and skin. Your breasts will be lifted and reshaped and your nipples will be repositioned. If necessary, the diameter of your areolas might be decreased by removing the skin at their perimeter. (In some cases, excess fat may be removed through liposuction.) The incisions are then brought together to reshape your smaller breasts, and stitches are layered deep within the breast tissue to support the newly shaped breasts. Stitches, skin adhesives, and surgical tape may be used to close the skin.
