Breast Reduction (Mammaplasty)

Don’t let your chest stop you from doing the things you love.

Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size that is proportionate to your body.

Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size that is proportionate to your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

Overly large breasts can cause some women to have both health and emotional problems. In addition to creating self-image issues, overly heavy breasts can cause real physical pain and discomfort. The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead an active life. The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large pendulous breasts is as important an issue to many women as the physical discomfort and pain.

Breast reduction surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
