Breast Reduction

Breast reduction may include extra techniques beyond surgical removal of tissue.  Liposuction is often used along with surgery to contour the sides of the breast or the abdomen to help provide an ideal shape.

The Basics

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size of large breasts. This operation can alleviate the physical discomfort and pain often associated with overly large breasts, including back, neck, and shoulder pain. By removing excess tissue, fat, and skin, breast reduction can improve posture and relieve pressure on the spine and shoulders, leading to a more comfortable lifestyle.

Who is a good candidate?

People with large breasts often suffer from skin irritation, chafing, or rashes in the crease beneath the breasts due to excess moisture and friction. Breast reduction surgery can help address these issues by reducing the amount of skin-on-skin contact, leading to improved skin health and reducing the risk of infections. This can greatly enhance comfort and personal hygiene.
