Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure that is designed to reduce the size of the breasts by removing excess fat, tissue, and skin.

This procedure is ideal for women who have breasts that are disproportionately large in relation to their body, and are experiencing discomfort, pain, or limited mobility due to their breast size.

During the breast reduction surgery, the surgeon will make an incision around the areola and down to the breast crease, removing excess tissue, skin, and fat. The nipple and areola may also be repositioned to a higher position on the breast mound to achieve a more natural appearance. After the surgery, patients typically experience a reduction in physical symptoms associated with large breasts, such as back, neck, and shoulder pain. They may also experience an improved ability to participate in physical activities, better posture, and an increased sense of confidence and self-esteem.
