Breast Reduction, otherwise known as Reduction Mammoplasty, removes both breast tissue as well as excess skin, making the breasts smaller, lighter and perkier. Incisions are made on the breast, however Dr. Freedland will provide more details regarding technique during during your initial consultation. There are several reasons to request a reduction:

  • Excess volume or drooping due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging
