Safety is the foremost priority with any surgical procedure at North Charlotte Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Breast reduction surgery is very safe. It is one of the most common breast procedures with over 120,000 breast reduction procedures safely performed annually in the United States.
Because the surgery addresses the fatty and glandular breast tissue excess, it is not necessary to operate more invasively near vital structures during the procedure. Prior to any surgery, all patients undergo a thorough medical history screening during the consultation process.
Medical testing and clearance for surgery from other providers is sometimes necessary.
