What is Breast Reduction?
A breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to remove fat, glandular tissue, and skin to decrease the size of the breasts. This can help patients who suffer from neck and back pain, headaches, poor posture, and other issues such as recurrent rashes.
“Absolutely love Dr Olack and his staff! I’ve had one procedure and it was a great experience. Getting ready for a second procedure and I wouldn’t trust anyone else besides Dr. Olack. My results were better than I ever dreamed they could be. Thank you all so much!” – Katherine

In addition to the risks associated with any surgery, risks related to reduction mammaplasty, depending on the technique used, include the following:
