The goal of breast surgery isn’t always to increase size. Many women find their breast size to be uncomfortably large. This can cause physical and emotional distress and is easily correct. Breasts are made smaller by the removal of breast tissue and excess fat. This is called “breast reduction” surgery. Breast reduction can go one step further. Your cosmetic surgeon can also reshape the breasts. This allows you to not only get a smaller breast size, but also to achieve your goal breast shape as well. Depending on the desired outcome for your procedure, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend the reduction be paired with a breast lift. These two procedures are very often paired as part of a “mommy makeover”. The result of these two paired surgeries is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
