Breast reduction procedure

The aesthetic surgeon initiated the procedure by administering a general anesthetic. The technique used to reduce the breast size depends on the compositions of the breast. If the breast enlargement is caused due to fat deposition, liposuction is performed to remove the fat tissues from the breast. If the breast increases in size due to excess glandular tissues in the area, then excision technique is used to remove the excess glandular tissue from the breast. In some cases, both these techniques are used to flatten and firm the breast.
