The goal of breast surgery is not always to increase size. Some women experience physical and/or emotional distress because of their uncomfortably large breasts. Breasts are made smaller by the removal of breast tissue and excess fat. This is referred to as “breast reduction” surgery. Cosmetic surgeons also reshape the breast creating the shape and size that fits your body the best. In many cases, your cosmetic surgeon will recommend you have a breast lift completed 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 procedures is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
