Though making breasts larger is the most common form of breast cosmetic surgery. Some women are looking to reduce the size of their breasts instead. Many women experience physical and/or emotional distress due to their uncomfortably large breasts. Breast reduction surgery reduces the size of breasts by removing fat and breast tissue. In addition to making your breasts smaller, your cosmetic surgeon will often also reshape your breasts to achieve a more esthetically pleasing shape and size. In many cases, your plastic surgeon will recommend you have a breast lift completed in combination with your breast reduction surgery. The result would be a reduced size and entirely different shape. The procedure is also commonly performed as part of a mommy makeover.
