What is Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction, although actually a reconstructive surgical procedure, is used to correct marked breast enlargement, out of proportion to body size, and causing significant back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as a tendency to rashes and yeast infections in the folds under the breasts. Breast reduction surgery, also referred as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure that can remove the excess fats, skin and tissue from inordinately large, heavy breasts. In many cases, this is performed not just to make the body appear proportionate but also to treat physical symptoms such as skin irritation along the crease, bad posture, chronic pain in the neck, back and shoulder, and restricted activities because of the excessive weight of the bust.

Breast Reduction is a surgical method of size reduction of the breasts, relieving the weight burden, and usually producing an improvement in breast shape.

While this surgery can be performed at any age, most doctors recommend their patients to wait until they are at least 18 years old, a stage in which their breasts are fully developed. Most experts also advise women to postpone breast reduction if they are considering having children in the future since their ability to breastfeed may be compromised.
