Breast Reduction's Aesthetic and Reconstructive Benefits

Breast reduction is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with your body and to alleviate pain and discomfort.

Although breast reduction is often performed to address medical issues, patients who do not have the symptoms of excessively large breasts (macromastia) but are unhappy with the size of their breasts can still pursue breast reduction as an aesthetic procedure.
