The goal of breast surgery isn’t always to increase size. In the event a women’s breasts are large enough to cause physical hardship, breast reduction surgery can be of help. Breast reduction surgery is a surgery that allows for the reduction in breast size. This is achieved by removing extra fat and breast tissue to reach the desired, smaller breast size. In addition to making your breasts smaller, your plastic surgeon will often also reshape your breasts to achieve a more esthetically pleasing shape and size. In many cases, your plastic surgeon will suggest you have a breast lift performed in combination with your breast reduction surgery. These two procedures are very often combined as part of a “mommy makeover”. The outcome of these two paired surgeries is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
