Breast Reduction 

What is a Breast Reduction?

Reduction mammoplasty, more commonly known as breast reduction, reduces the size and weight of your breast by removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin.  Many patients with heavy, voluminous breasts experience physical pain and discomfort along with emotional discomfort. Many women find physical activity to be hindered due to the excess breast weight.  With breast reduction surgery we can restore posture and significantly improve pain caused by the excess weight of your breasts.
