What is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery, medically known as reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to reduce the size and reshape overly large breasts. It can alleviate physical discomfort, such as back pain and shoulder strain, while also enhancing a patient's overall quality of life and self-esteem. The surgery involves removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to create smaller, more proportionate breasts.
