Increasing the size of a woman’s breasts isn’t the only reason for undertaking breast surgery Many women find their breast size to be uncomfortably large. This can cause physical and emotional hardship and is easily correct. Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that allows for the reduction in breast size. This is achieved by removing excess fat and breast tissue to reach the desired, smaller breast size. Plastic surgeons also reshape the breast creating the shape and size that best fits your body. In some cases, your plastic surgeon will suggest you have a breast lift completed in combination with your breast reduction surgery. These two procedures are very often paired as part of a “mommy makeover”. The result of these two paired procedures is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
