Breast Reduction or Reduction Mammoplasty Surgery
Women with very large breasts are often subject to general discomfort including neck and back pain, potential breathing problems, bra strap pain, and infections.
Oversized breasts may cause problems with work and daily activities. Breast reduction is a procedure intended to reduce the size and weight of the breasts while reshaping them to a natural curvature. Breast reduction is usually performed using the interior pedicle technique.
What is breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction (mammoplasty) surgery involves removal of breast tissue and skin to decrease the size of the breast. Then, the breasts are re-shaped to make them smaller. Plastic surgery may need to be used to reposition the nipple so it is in line with the middle of the upper arm.
Benefits of breast reduction
Women with naturally larger breasts often suffer from pains in their neck, back and shoulders – a breast reduction can significantly alleviate this discomfort. Breast reductions can also correct uneven sized breasts but are also an option for women who would just prefer smaller, perter breasts.
What can I expect from my final results?
Patients who receive breast reduction treatment can expect a reduction in breast size and improved breast shape.
