Increasing the size of a woman’s breasts is not the sole reason for undertaking breast surgery In the event a women’s breasts are so large to cause physical distress, breast reduction surgery can be of assistance. Breast reduction surgery lowers the size of breasts by removing fat and breast tissue. Cosmetic surgeons also reshape the breast creating the shape and size that best fits your body. Breast reduction surgery is often paired with a breast lift. These two surgeries are very often combined as part of a “mommy makeover”. The outcome of these two combined surgeries is a smaller breast size with the desired breast shape.
