Breast reduction is also known as reduction mammaplasty, a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin in order to achieve the desired breast proportion. Breast reduction surgery will reduce the size of your breast and reshape them so they look more proportionate with the rest of your body. Additionally, it will help with the discomfort and pain that you have been experiencing due to the size of your breasts.
When to consider breast reduction: • If your breasts are too large for your body frame • If you are having neck, back or shoulder pain due to large breasts • If you have large heavy breasts with nipples and areolas that are pointing downward • If one breast is much larger than the other one • If you notice grooves in your shoulders from your bra straps • If you are unhappy with your appearance due to your breast size
Without the excessive weight of large breasts, you may find that you enjoy life more. Many patients express feeling more self-confident after having their breast reduction performed. The specific method chosen for your breast reduction will be determined by your anatomy, your surgeon’s preferences and your desired results.
