Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction (formally referred to as reduction mammoplasty) is a plastic surgery procedure for women with excessively large, pendulous breasts, a condition known as breast hypertrophy. Overly large breasts can cause both physical and psychological problems, including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Inflammation beneath the breast folds
  • Soreness from bra straps digging into the skin
  • Limitations on physical activities
  • Increased self-consciousness
  • Emotional discomfort resulting from unwanted attention
  • Decreased self-esteem

By removing excess skin, fat and breast tissue, and repositioning and reshaping the breasts, reduction mammoplasty can relieve the physical and psychological strains of overly large breasts and help women attain a more comfortable, proportionate and visibly appealing bustline.
