What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery entails the removal of skin and tissue from the breast, followed by reshaping and elevating to create a smaller, more proportionate bust size.

Many women struggle with the decision to have a breast reduction, but afterwards consider it one of the best decisions they ever made for themselves.

Women pursue this surgery for various reasons, but all with the goal of enhancing their overall quality of life:

Improved confidence and self-expression

Many women say that after a breast reduction they are more confident in themselves and more comfortable in their own bodies.

Easier to shop

Women often report that finding clothes that fit them becomes much easier and they can shop at almost any store they want.

Back feels better

Women almost always report that having smaller breasts significantly reduces back pain and gives them newfound energy throughout the day.

Bras don't hurt

By removing weight from their breasts nearly all women experience a significant reduction in bra strap pain.

Exercise with ease

Women frustrated with the pain and discomfort of having overly large breasts can finally exercise in the way they want.

Skin feels better

For women with very large breasts, skin irritation under the breasts is common; this is significantly reduced after a breast reduction.

Easier to breathe

Women find it easier to breathe with smaller, more proportionate breasts.
