What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure for reducing the size of the breast by removing fat tissue,
glandular tissue and skin.
Having the desired and appropriate breast size can enhance a woman’s confidence and self-esteem.
Many women choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery to make their breasts larger. This is most
frequently a cosmetic consideration. Breast reduction, on the other hand, is more frequently
undertaken to relieve physical problems associated with disproportionately large breasts. Problems

- Brassiere strap pain
- Pain in the back or chronic spinal misalignment
- An inability to perform certain physical activities comfortably or at all
