Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty is an operation to remove extra fat, tissue, and skin from your breasts.
If you have large breasts that are out of proportion to the rest of your body and causing neck pain, back pain, or other symptoms, you may consider breast reduction surgery. Skin bruising over the shoulder strap areas and recurrent skin maceration below the breasts may also accompany larger breasts
There are 3 age groups of women seeking breast reduction
- Young women aged 18 to 26 years who come because of social problems.
- Women aged 35-45 years who have completed their families and want to regain normal body contours.
- Older women who gain weight after menopause.
This surgical correction usually gives great relief to the symptoms , enhances body image and restores a more youthful appearance of the breasts
