Breast reduction surgery answers the concern experienced by some women with very large, sagging breasts that can cause medical problems, such as back and neck pain, breathing difficulties, and – in extreme cases – skeletal deformities, not to mention feeling self-conscious.
To give the woman breasts that are in proportion to her body, the surgeon removes fatty, glandular tissue and skin, reposition the nipple, and reshape the breasts, leaving them smaller, lighter and firmer. Reducing the breast size also reduces the areola or darker skin around the nipples. Breast reduction is performed to alleviate a physical problem and not solely for cosmetic reasons, but the results are the same. Well-proportioned breasts eliminate the discomfort of larger breasts, build self-esteem, and give the woman more clothing options.
