Scars after breast reduction. Scars on the breasts of a 68-year-old woman three months after an operation to reduce their size. A surgical procedure that alters the size or shape of a woman's breasts is known as mammoplasty. If the breasts are sagging, as is common in older women, skin may be removed as well as breast tissue. The breasts are then fixed in a higher position.
