The breast reduction or Reduction Mammoplasty is a procedure to reduce the size of large, pendulous breasts and create smaller more youthful appearing breasts. Women frequently choose this operation because of severe back, neck and shoulder aches created by the large size of their breasts. The great physical discomfort that is caused by very heavy, large breasts can limit participation in certain activities or exercise, In addition, breasts that are out of proportion to a women's body can cause anguish, embarrassment and extreme self-consciousness.

There are several different techniques and incisions that can be used in breast reduction. The most common procedure involves an anchor-shaped incision that circles the areola, extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. The surgeon removes excess glandular tissue, fat and skin, and moves the nipple and areola into their new position. The doctor then brings the skin from both sides of the breast down and around the areola, shaping the new contour of the breast. Liposuction may be used to remove excess fat from the armpit area.

New procedures reduce scars
In an effort to eliminate big scars, operations have now been developed in the USA, Europe and South America to limit the amount of scarring while preserving a youthful contour to the breast. In most cases the scar can be either limited to around the nipple-areola complex, or for larger breasts a short vertical scar going down from the areola.

Very few surgeons in the United States have adopted or are even aware of this technique, but Dr. Corbin has been using this technique for several years now. We have had very exciting results with patients who have been very happy that they have gone with this newer technique.
