The goal of breast surgery isn’t always to make breasts larger. When a women’s breasts are so large to cause physical hardship, breast reduction surgery can be of assistance. Breasts are reduced in size by the removal of breast tissue and extra fat. This is called “breast reduction” surgery. Cosmetic surgeons also reshape the breast leaving you with the shape and size that fits your body the best. Depending on the desired outcome for your procedure, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend the reduction be paired with a breast lift. These two surgeries are very often combined as part of a “mommy makeover”. The result of these two combined surgeries is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
