Breast reduction in Albacete: What is the surgical procedure like?
Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that patients, usually women, undergo to reduce the size of their breasts.
Breast reduction is sometimes performed with liposuction, when the skin is sufficiently elastic and the breast shape is satisfactory. However, in most cases, breast elevation is necessary to improve the shape and firmness of the breasts. In these cases the surgery requires scars to remove excess skin, gland, fat and lift the areolar complex.
The scars are usually arranged in the form of an anchor. This includes a scar around the areola, a vertical scar and a horizontal scar in the submammary fold, which will eventually become imperceptible. A small incision in the lateral region of the breast is common to improve the result.
