Breast reduction surgery. Surgeon making incisions with a scalpel around a breast of a patient under- going breast reduction surgery. Breast surgery (mammoplasty) is often carried out to reduce the size of a breast or reconstruct its shape or position. Typically, incisions are made around the nipple, down to the chest and under the breast. The skin over the breast is lifted, allowing excess tissue and skin to be removed from within the breast. The remaining breast tissue is then repositioned and/or reshaped to produce a "normal" shape, before the skin is sutured closed around the new breast mound and original nipple.
