Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, also known as Reduction Mammoplasty, 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 the pain and discomfort associated with excessively large breasts (macromastia). The primary purpose to consider a breast reduction surgery is not only to improve the aesthetic appearance but also to achieve breast symmetry

While most breast reductions are performed alone, you can also benefit from additional body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or liposuction to achieve the shape and size you desire.
