What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery offers women with large, heavy breasts the option to reduce the size of their breasts while maintaining a natural shape. Medically called “reduction mammaplasty,” breast reduction surgery is designed to remove excess breast skin, fat, and glandular tissues to reshape your breasts to a smaller, more proportionate, balanced size and shape. The changes to your outlook, confidence, and lifestyle can be dramatic!
