  3. The excessive breast tissue is removed, lifted, and shaped.

Breast Reduction Surgery Techniques:

There are different surgery techniques, but they all involve reducing the breast size by removing the excess fat tissues and reshaping the breast size desired by the patients. The standard methods are:
