The goal of breast surgery is not always to make breasts larger. In the event a women’s breasts are so large to cause physical distress, breast reduction surgery can be of assistance. Breast reduction surgery lowers the size of breasts by removing fat and breast tissue. Plastic surgeons also reshape the breast creating the shape and size that best fits your body. Depending on the desired result for your procedure, your plastic surgeon might recommend the reduction be accompanied by a breast lift. These two surgeries are very often combined as part of a “mommy makeover”. The result of these two paired surgeries is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
