The goal of breast surgery isn’t always to increase size. In the event a women’s breasts are large enough to cause physical hardship, breast reduction surgery can be of assistance. Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that allows for the reduction in breast size. This is done 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 fits your body the best. In some cases, your cosmetic surgeon will suggest you have a breast lift performed in combination with your breast reduction surgery. These two surgeries are very often combined as part of a “mommy makeover”. The outcome of these two combined procedures is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
