This woman who is 5’3″ and 172 pounds suffered from symptomatic macromastia (very large breasts that cause back and neck pain and interfere with daily life). She had a two stage breast reduction procedure, the first being an amputative (free nipple graft) breast reduction of about 1200 grams of tissue from each breast (a bit less than three pounds per breast).
She also had axillary breast tissue that was removed about seven weeks after her breast reduction. The arrow points to the axillary breast tissue that was removed at her second procedure. Without removal of this tissue she would continue to have fullness up under her arms which would compromise the appearance of her result. Needless to say, her breast reduction has changed her life, and she only wished she had the procedure done when she was younger.
