Cosmetic breast surgery is a surgical procedure to change the size or shape of the breasts.
Breast revision surgery can be done in an outpatient surgical facility or in a hospital. General anesthesia is often used, although local anesthesia may be used to numb the area around the breasts.
For a breast reduction, some of the breast tissue is removed and the nipples may be relocated higher on the breasts for cosmetic reasons. In general, the operation lasts 3 to 6 hours and is done under general anesthesia.
