As a mother of two, this 48-year old woman felt that her body had changed a little too much from the look she wanted. She had breast fed both of her children, and as a result, her breasts had lost their youthful shape. Her breast reduction surgery required several steps. On the day of the surgery, her doctor removed 400 grams of breast tissue from the right and 520 grams of breast tissue from the left breast, then re-contoured the remainder to give it a more shapely, youthful look. In the process, he adjusted the position of her nipples. Then, he adjusted the curves of her abdomen and the medial and lateral (side) areas of her thighs to remove unwanted fat.
