Increasing the size of a woman’s breasts is not the only reason for having breast surgery Many women find their breast size to be uncomfortably large. This can result in physical and emotional distress and is easily correct. Breast reduction surgery lowers the size of breasts by removing fat and breast tissue. Plastic surgeons also reshape the breast leaving you with the shape and size that best fits your body. Breast reduction surgery is many times paired with a breast lift. These two procedures 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.
