Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, removes fat, breast tissue and skin from the breasts. For those with large breasts, breast reduction surgery can ease discomfort and improve appearance.
Breast reduction surgery might also help improve self-image and the ability to take part in physical activities.
If you’re thinking of breast reduction surgery, talk to a certified plastic surgeon. It’s important to understand what’s involved with breast reduction surgery, including possible risks and complications. It’s also important to know what the surgery can and can’t do.
Breast reduction surgery is meant for people who have large breasts that cause the following:
- Chronic back, neck and shoulder pain
- Shoulder grooves from bra straps
- Chronic rash or skin irritation under the breasts
- Nerve pain
- Not being able to take part in some activities
- Poor self-image due to large breasts
- Trouble fitting into bras and clothing
Although breast reduction is often performed to address medical issues, patients who do not have the symptoms of macromastia but are unhappy with the size of their breasts can still pursue breast reduction as an aesthetic procedure. Patients choosing to undergo breast reduction surgery for cosmetic reasons may cite any number of factors, including social stigmas and wardrobe concerns.
Innovative technologies, high-quality services and patient-centic individual approach allow us to solve aesthetic problems of any complexity, while safely and effectively.
