Back and neck pain are common reasons some people choose to undergo a breast reduction procedure. Some simply want their clothes to fit more comfortably, or desire a different size and shape to boost their self-esteem. The actual procedure begins with an incision around the nipple, and downward to take away excess skin, tissue, and fat. Nipples are then cosmetically relocated.
Breast reductions take about two to three hours, and the recovery time is typically two to four weeks. You will be able to return to full activities after one month.
