How Much Weight Is Removed In Breast Reduction?

By August 9, 2021 No Comments
Breast reduction is a procedure that reduces the size of the breasts. Typically, the procedure is performed to alleviate problems associated with having breasts too large for one’s frame, such as back pain, rashes, and ill-fitting clothing. This removes tissue, fat, and sometimes glands. How much weight is removed in breast reduction? It largely depends on the size of your breasts and the frame. On average, a total of two to eight pounds is removed from the breasts during a breast reduction surgery bellevue. The amount removed depends on the size of your breasts, your goals, your body size and frame, and how much is safe to remove based on your health and medical history. Breast reduction is not a weight loss surgery and can utilize a few different surgical techniques. The most common is an anchor incision, similar to a breast lift. However, breast liposuction is often an option for those who need only a moderate reduction.
