Reduction mammaplasty, also known as breast reduction, is a cosmetic surgery that reduces the size and weight of the breasts. For many women, overly large breasts can pose certain health problems such as back and neck pains. With a reduction in breast size, many of these health problems can be alleviated.
Reduction mammaplasty can address a range of issues associated with large breasts. Many women with overly large breasts experience excessive sagging, stretched skin, enlarged areolas, neck pain, back pain, skin irritation at the breast creases and emotional distress due to body-image issues. During surgery, excess fat and tissue are removed and the breasts are reformed in a manner more fitting to the patient’s ideals.
