1.- Reduction mammoplasty provides the woman with smaller breasts and a shape more proportional to the rest of her body. The purpose of the intervention is the remodeling and reduction of the breasts, placing the areolapezón in its correct position.

2.- Breast lift or mastopexy is a surgery to lift the breasts. Surgery may also involve changing the position of the areola and nipple.

When patients are evaluated for breast surgery, it is to recognize patients who have the areola and the right nipple. The difficulty of making the decision of which technique would be the best, lies in the fact that the fall of the breasts is not an absolute phenomenon.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes between 2 to 4 hours. There are many variations in the procedure, the most common is to make an insicion that surrounds the areola and extends down along the curve of the breast fold, the surgeon removes excess fat and glandular tissue. Then the nipple and areola move to their new position joining the skin providing a new shape to the breasts.
