The goal of breast surgery is not always to make breasts larger. When a women’s breasts are large enough 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. Cosmetic surgeons also reshape the breast creating the shape and size that best fits your body. Depending on the desired result for your procedure, your plastic surgeon may suggest the reduction be paired with a breast lift. The result would be a reduced size and completely different shape. The procedure is also commonly done as part of a mommy makeover.
