Removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body
Large breasts can cause pain, improper posture, rashes, breathing problems, skeletal deformities such as neck, back and shoulder pain, and low self-esteem. The medical term for this is symptomatic macromastia.
Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is usually done to provide relief from these symptoms and improve the shape and appearance of the breasts. Performed under general anesthesia, the two- to four-hour procedure removes fat and glandular tissue and tightens skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in a healthier proportion to the rest of the body. In certain cases, breast reduction surgery can be performed with liposuction alone. In many cases, breast reduction can be covered by insurance.
