What does breast reduction involve?
Breast reduction surgery (or reduction mammaplasty) is the reshaping of breasts in order to make them smaller, lighter and firmer. This is achieved by removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin.
Large breasts can cause physical pain, as well as emotional distress and social anxiety.
Women who take advantage of breast reduction surgery find they are able to lead a healthier, more comfortable life, in addition to enjoying the confidence of a beautiful, more proportionate appearance.
This surgery is also used in the correction of post-surgical breast symmetry, in cases of congenital defects, or ptosis of such severity, that it limits a woman’s capacity to carry out functions of everyday life.
What are the benefits of breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is for women whose large breasts adversely impact on their physical health and psychological wellbeing.
Many women with large breasts suffer skin rashes and infection, back and neck pain, body image issues and may avoid engaging in physical activities or social outings which reduces their overall quality of life.
