Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more proportionate with your body. A breast reduction also helps to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery generally are seeking relief from physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Breast reduction usually can alleviate these discomforts as well as improve the shape and size of your breasts.
Excessively large, sagging breasts can be uncomfortable, unhealthy and distracting from a woman s appearance. Large breasts can also restrict certain activities. Breast reduction surgery reduces overdeveloped breasts and can alleviate back pain, shoulder strap furrows, hand numbness and breathing difficulty.
