Reductive Mastoplasty is the intervention that serves to reduce too voluminous breasts via the removal of glandular tissue and excess cutis. The residual gland is then repositioned at its original site (pectoral region) and fixed to the pectoral muscle. It is therefore a rather complex intervention requiring good surgical experience. Also, in order to be successful, correct surgical techniques must be used that permit breast reduction and anchorage, without leaving too evident and disfiguring scars. The intervention lasts for around 3 – 4 hours and requires 1 – 2 days of hospitalisation. Stitch removal after 7 – 10 days.
