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 done by removing extra fat and breast tissue to reach the desired, smaller breast size. Breast reduction can go one step further. Your cosmetic surgeon can also reshape your breasts. This make it possible to not only achieve a smaller breast size, but also to achieve your desired breast shape as well. In some cases, your cosmetic surgeon will suggest you have a breast lift performed in combination with your breast reduction surgery. The result would be a reduced size and completely different shape. The surgery is also commonly performed as part of a mommy makeover.
