Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that permanently reduces the size, weight, and volume of one or both breasts. Breast reduction may also reshape the breasts. However, it should be noted that breast reduction surgery does not correct or prevent sagging. Excessively large breasts may impact a woman’s self-confidence, as well as cause uncomfortable side effects, such as pain in the back, neck or shoulders, and even a condition known as thoracic kyphosis that affects the spine causing pain and difficulty breathing. Breast reduction surgery alleviates these conditions and enhances a woman’s appearance with breasts that are more proportionate to her overall figure.
