La mamoplastia es un procedimiento quirúrgico común para cambiar el tamaño de los senos. Aunque es más frecuente oír hablar de agrandamiento de los senos o aumento de las mamas, más de la mitad de las mamoplastias se realiza para disminuir el tamaño de los senos (reducción mamaria). La mamoplastia también está indicada cuando las mamas tienen una marcada diferencia de tamaño.
