Breast Reduction or Mastopexy

A breast reduction is an operation designed to make large breasts smaller, perter and more in proportion with the rest of your body. The operation can also be performed to make each breast a similar size if one side is much larger than the other or asymmetrical. A mastopexy is a similar operation but maintains breast volume, so that there is no reduction in size. Some mastopexy patients wish an increase in breast volume and it can be combined with a breast augmentation or fat transfer.

Women with excessively large breasts may complain of having constant neck and back pain, painful grooves where bra straps have cut into the shoulders and skin irritation/rashes in the crease beneath the breast. Patients say that they cannot find clothes that fit, have poor posture and find many activities difficult due to the size of their breasts. In addition, large breasts can make a person feel extremely self conscious and embarrassed.
