Reduction mammaplasty is more commonly known as a breast reduction or breast reduction surgery. This is the surgical procedure to reduce the size of the breasts by removing excess tissue, fat and skin.
Here are some of the reasons women want to reduce their breast size:
- Large heavy breasts can reduce one’s quality of life, causing chronic back, neck, or shoulder pain.
- Oversized breasts can also affect physical activities, limiting exercise options and participation in fun events.
- If breasts are out of proportion with the rest of the body clothing tends to fit badly too.
- Large sagging breasts can cause skin irritations.
A breast reduction procedure can greatly improve one’s self-esteem and confidence. Most women that have this surgery are very satisfied and have no regrets.
