Having large, heavy breasts makes many women uncomfortable both physically and psychologically.
The excess weight of large breasts may cause back and neck pain, skin irritation, skeletal deformities, even breathing difficulties. Many teenage girls and women are extremely self-conscious about the size of their breasts.
For women with these problems, breast reduction surgery can bring significant relief. Breast reductions are one of the most successful and immediately satisfying of aesthetic procedures because it allows patients to enjoy a more active life with greater self-esteem.
Breast reduction surgery is a very straightforward procedure that removes fat, glandular tissue and skin to create smaller, better shaped lifted breasts. Breast reductions also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The end results are attractive breasts that are in proportion to the rest of your body.
