The goal of breast surgery is not always to make breasts larger. In the event a women’s breasts are so large to cause physical distress, breast reduction surgery can be of assistance. Breasts are reduced in size by the removal of breast tissue and extra fat. This is referred to as “breast reduction” surgery. In addition to making your breasts smaller, your plastic surgeon can also reshape your breasts to achieve a more esthetically pleasing shape and size. Breast reduction surgery is many times paired with a breast lift. These two surgeries are very often combined as part of a “mommy makeover”. The outcome of these two combined surgeries is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
