Abstract

Reduction mammoplasty alleviates symptoms of macromastia in various ways. Current study results mainly identify perioperative risk factors for middle aged patients. We investigated a large series of consecutive breast reductions procedures to study whether patients' age at the time of operation is related to the postoperative outcome.
