Breasts that are disproportionately large can cause some women to suffer from physical and emotional issues. The physical pain is created from the weight of the excess breast tissue, which can at times prevent a woman from living her normal life. A breast reduction is a surgical procedure to correct the breasts’ size and shape and in doing so alleviate the discomfort associated with excessively large breasts.

A breast reduction, also known as a reduction mammaplasty, is achieved by removing excess tissue, fat and skin from the breasts to achieve proportionate breasts relative to the rest of the body.

During the procedure, the incision locations will be determined by the amount of skin and tissue needing to be removed. Patient preference is also a critical factor in mapping out a surgical strategy. These things will all be discussed during the consultation with our chief plastic and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Karthik Ram.
