The goal of breast surgery isn’t always to increase size. When a women’s breasts are so large to cause physical distress, breast reduction surgery can be of help. Breast reduction surgery is a surgery 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 best fits your body. Depending on the desired result for your procedure, your cosmetic surgeon may suggest the reduction be accompanied by a breast lift. These two surgeries are very often combined as part of a “mommy makeover”. The result of these two combined procedures is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
