Large breasts that weight more than 500 grams each can pose a number of secondary health concerns. Back pain, neck pain and psychological depression are problems associated with having excessively large breasts. Reduction mammaplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to relieve issues such as these. Reduction mammaplasty, more commonly known as breast reduction, is a cosmetic surgery that primarily deals with the nipple-areola complex. The surgical procedure involves incisions around the areola and breast crease in order to remove excess tissue and enable reshaping of the breast hemisphere. Incisions can vary in size and shape, depending on the specific goals and issues of the patient. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine to learn more about what you can achieve with reduction mammaplasty.
