A breast reduction is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the sagging and heaviness of large breasts. Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with your body. It can also help to alleviate the discomfort in the back, neck and shoulders that often accompanies overly large breasts.

When performed by a skilled, credentialed surgeon, breast reduction surgery is an effective procedure that can improve a woman’s quality of life. Enhanced self-image, self-confidence, and the ability to participate in physical activities that may have been previously avoided are some of most-cited benefits by patients having the procedure.

Choosing the right surgeon who is qualified and experienced is of extreme importance for anyone considering a breast reduction.
