Female breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is an operation to reduce the weight and volume of the breasts. During the procedure, fat, glandular tissue and skin are removed from the breasts, which are then reshaped and the nipples repositioned.
Potential risk of negligence
Breast reductions are commonly done under general anaesthesia and reactions to anesthesia although rare, might occur. Breast surgery risks and complications include bleeding, fluid accumulation and infection. Swelling and bruising may also occur.
