Breast reduction surgery, also called reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess glandular tissue and fat from the breasts and tightens the skin around them. This results in smaller, more shapely and lifted breasts that are balanced with the rest of the patient’s body for an overall harmonious appearance. Dr. Saber also frequently uses additional liposuction of strategic areas such as the axilla, the sides of the chest, and the bra line to further reduce unwanted areas of excess fat and to contour the chest.
Breast reduction surgery is not just for women. Men suffering from gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts, can also benefit from a version of the procedure as the hormonal condition is often a source of severe embarrassment, especially for younger men.
