Increasing the size of a woman’s breasts isn’t the sole reason for undertaking breast surgery 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 procedure 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. In addition to making your breasts smaller, your plastic surgeon can also reshape your breasts to create a more esthetically pleasing shape and size. In many cases, your cosmetic surgeon will recommend you have a breast lift performed in combination with your breast reduction surgery. These two procedures are very often paired as part of a “mommy makeover”. The result of these two combined surgeries is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
