Breast Reduction

Large or heavy breasts may be the result of genetics, weight gain, or the aging process. Many women are dissatisfied with the appearance of their large breasts, especially if they appear disproportionate to the rest of their body. They may also experience skin irritation, back pain, and shoulder pain from the excess weight of cumbersome breasts. Breast reduction surgery will reduce the weight and size of the breasts to alleviate these concerns and can significantly boost a woman's self-esteem.
