What is a Reduction Mammoplasty?

Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty is a surgical procedure whose determination is to decrease the size of the breasts, improve their shape, their projection and achieve a more balanced position to harmonize with the body.

Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from the breasts, to give them a more aesthetic appearance. This procedure is also indicated in cases of back pain, skin irritation below the breasts and activity limitations due to overweight breast tissue.
