Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty
Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure[1] which involves the reduction in the size of breasts by excising fat, skin, and glandular tissue; it may also involve a procedure to counteract drooping of the breasts. As with breast augmentation, this procedure is performed most often on women, but may also be performed on men afflicted by gynecomastia.
