What Is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to reshape and reduce the size of the breasts. By removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin, breast reduction surgery not only addresses physical discomfort but also enhances the overall appearance of the breasts. Suppose you suffer from symptomatic macromastia, characterized by chronic pain in the shoulders, back, and neck due to heavy breasts. In that case, breast reduction may be the solution you’ve been seeking to improve your quality of life and self-confidence.

How Does Breast Reduction Work?

During breast reduction surgery, Dr. Iorio employs advanced techniques to achieve optimal results. Typically, an incision is made around the areola, extending downward along the natural curve under the breast. Excess tissue and skin are carefully removed, and the nipple and areola may be repositioned to a higher, more aesthetically pleasing location. Depending on your unique anatomy and goals, Dr. Iorio will discuss the most suitable approach for your breast reduction during your initial consultation.
