The breast reduction procedure begins with an incision, which is made around the areola, the dark circle of skin surrounding the nipple, and below the natural curve of the breast. Next, excess fat, glandular tissue and skin are removed and the remaining skin is tightened around the newly contoured breast. The procedure may take up to three hours and is performed under anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
