Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty is an operation to reduce the size of the breasts. Such a procedure may have medical reasons, e.g. chronic back pain and tension, bra straps cutting in or skin infections in the inframammary fold.
In the majority of cases, breast reduction simply fulfils the wish to look better, and this is also not at all uncommon for men, who still want a young, virile torso in the second half of life.
The surgical technique depends on the size and characteristics of the breast. It is not only breast tissue that is removed, but also excess skin, whereby there is a lifting effect. The nipple is also transplanted to a new position. Such breast operations are rather massive procedures and the advice from the experienced specialists of the Wiener Privatklinik is helpful when weighing up benefits and risks.
