Breast reduction surgery, referred to as mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to remove excess breast fat, tissue and skin. It helps women with disproportionately large breasts achieve their desired contour and help eliminate some of the discomforts associated with large breasts. At times, breast reduction or restructuring surgery is also recommended to improve self-image when a patient has undergone total or partial removal of the breast as part of cancer treatment. If you plan to undergo breast reduction surgery in India it is best to consult an expert surgeon and undergo thorough profiling. The doctor may recommend a thorough breast exam and even a mammogram before deciding to undertake the surgery.
