How is breast reduction surgery performed?
This procedure is typically performed for physical relief rather than cosmetic reasons. During breast reduction surgery, San Francisco Breast Enhancement expert, Dr. Mele, will use either the anchor-incision, or another appropriate incision on the breast. He will remove the excess breast tissue and redundant skin. and then tighten up the remaining skin with a breast lift, forming a youthful, perky and smaller, newly-shaped breast. As a result, your breasts will feel lighter and firmer. Upper back and lower eck pain relief is usually immediate.
