Breast reduction is a surgical process to remove the excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin. The surgery is performed through incisions on the breasts. The patient must stay one night in the hospital prior to surgery. A general anesthesia will be given to the patient before the procedure. The procedure takes around 2 to 5 hours. The surgeon will make a cut around the nipple and downward on the breast in the form of a keyhole. The extra skin, tissue, and fat from your breasts will be removed and then reposition the nipple. The surgeon may use drainage tubes and then stitch up the breasts and wrap it.
