Though increasing breast size is the most common form of breast plastic surgery. Some women are looking to reduce the size of their breasts instead. When a women’s breasts are large enough to cause physical distress, breast reduction surgery can be of help. Breasts are made smaller by the removal of breast tissue and excess fat. This is called “breast reduction” surgery. In addition to making the breasts smaller, your cosmetic surgeon will often also reshape your breasts to achieve a more esthetically pleasing shape and size. Breast reduction surgery is many times combined with a breast lift. These two surgeries are very often combined as part of a “mommy makeover”. The result of these two paired procedures is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
