What is a Breast Reduction?
Breast Reduction, also know as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce overly large breasts to a more comfortable size and contour. Such surgery is indicated when unusually large breasts cause pain in the shoulders, back, and lower back. Other undesirable side effects in over-sized breasts involve improper posture and brassiere straps cutting into the shoulders. Overly large breasts often interfere with normal physical activity. Typically, the desired result is smaller, better shaped breasts that are proportioned with the rest of your body.
