Investing on Breast Reduction Mammoplasty Surgery

All about Reduction Mammoplasty

Are you interested in undergoing breast reduction mammoplasty surgery? For women struggling with the problem of excessively large breasts, such a surgery can be the solution. Also known as reduction mammoplasty, the surgery revolves around eliminating excess breast tissue skin and fat as well as reshaping and reducing the breast size.

The cost of breast reduction mammoplasty surgery varies depending on your breast surgeon’s fees and the extent of the surgery. You’ll generally find that surgeons with experience and a proven track record cost more but in turn, the training of such surgeons make them more capable of performing surgery with the required care and skill.

How is breast reduction mammoplasty surgery carried out?

Breast surgeons can approach the task of reduction mammoplasty surgery in two ways – there’s the vertical method and liposuction method:

Vertical reduction mammoplasty

This approach to reduction mammoplasty surgery is coined as such because of the vertical incision made in each breast and around the nipple area. It can be recommended for patients that need at least 800 grams of breast tissue removed from the breasts.

Liposuction reduction mammoplasty

This approach to reduction mammoplasty is less invasive compared to other methods. Small incisions are made in the breasts where a small “cannula” (liposuction tube) is inserted. Excess fat is then siphoned out of the breasts reducing and reshaping the breasts. Such an approach can work for patients with excessive fat in the breasts, and who have good and healthy skin tone.
