A Breast Reduction reduces the size of the breast and includes a lift of the nipple to a higher location, making the breasts appear smaller and more youthful. In the past, the procedure was performed in a hospital setting. However, it is now performed at the Aaronson Plastic Surgery Center with an overnight stay under the supervision of a private duty nurse. This assures a close observation needed in the immediate post operative period. The recuperation is generally about two weeks.
