Increasing the size of a woman’s breasts isn’t the only reason for undertaking breast surgery There are many women who find their breast size to be uncomfortably large. This can result in physical and emotional hardship and is easily remedied. Breast reduction surgery lowers the size of breasts by removing fat and breast tissue. Breast reduction can go a step further. Your plastic surgeon can also reshape the breasts. This allows you 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 recommend you have a breast lift done in combination with your breast reduction surgery. These two procedures 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.
