The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce the size of your breasts and reshape them so that they are in proportion to the rest of your body and are no longer a source of physical discomfort. This commonly requested, predictable procedure will improve your appearance while relieving the physical and emotional burden of overly large breasts.

When to consider breast reduction

• If your breasts are too large for your body frame and create neck, back, or shoulder pain.
• If you have heavy breasts with nipples and areolas (pigmented skin surrounding the nipples) that point downward.
• If one breast is much larger than the other.
• If you are unhappy and self-conscious about the large appearance of your breasts.
