Breast reduction surgery is a surgical procedure that reduces the volume of tissue and fat in the breasts. Naturally large breasts can cause physical discomfort and even difficulty with breathing. Some women may feel awkward and self-conscious about the proportion of their breasts in comparison to the rest of their body. Breast reduction surgery can alleviate pain and make performing daily activities easier. This procedure can also result in a more aesthetically appealing and proportional silhouette. The breasts are lifted and the shape and firmness of the breasts are enhanced with breast reduction surgery. Breast reduction procedures can only be performed on patients whose breasts are fully developed.
For some patients who only need fatty tissue removed, liposuction can be performed to reduce the size of the breasts. Although this method does not result in dramatic results, it is less invasive.
For those struggling with the discomfort of overly large breasts, breast reduction surgery may be the answer for you.
