Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a safe and effective option for women with large, heavy breasts. Women with large breasts may not only be dissatisfied with their body image, but also experience physical pain and discomfort, including back or shoulder pain in addition to suffering from skin irritation, bra strap indentations, concerns with posture, and limitations with physical exercise.

The best candidates for this surgery include:

  •  Women whose breasts are fully developed and breasts are enlarged (generally, a size D or larger)
  •  Healthy women who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  •  Non-smokers (smoking may delay healing and increase the risk of complications).

We can explain how a reduction mammoplasty can improve the appearance of your breasts and relieve pain, discomfort and any associated symptoms you may have resulting from large, pendulous breasts.
