Lakeland Breast Reduction also known as a Mastopexy
What is a breast reduction?
A breast reduction, also know as reduction mammaplasty is a procedure that removes excessive breast tissue. It has many different approaches in terms of the skin envelope work, and internal breast tissue rearrangement. It may be done for functional reasons, as when breast size interferes with daily living or exercise activity. Breast reduction is very commonly done for posture changes, chronic breast, neck, and shoulder pain. Finally, it may be done for purely cosmetic reasons.
Generally, longer nipple areola elevation dictates the need to include a horizontal incision. The same can be said of larger tissue resection or excision, although many surgeons advocate the use of vertical incisions in both high weight breast removal and long NAC-translocation. This typically involves multiple little tweaks after the incisions have completely healed.
