Breast Reduction in Plano, TX & Desoto, TX

Breast Reduction Surgery, or reduction mammaplasty, aims to reduce the size and weight of large breasts. During this procedure, excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed to make your breasts more proportionate to your body and to relieve discomfort caused by overly large breasts. As part of the procedure, the surgeon makes incisions around the areola and down the breast. Surgeons use these incisions to remove excess tissue and fat, reshape the remaining breast tissue, and reposition the nipple. The incisions are then closed with stitches. This surgery, usually performed under general anesthesia, typically takes about three to five hours, depending on how much reduction is needed.
