A breast reduction surgery is also commonly known as a reduction mammaplasty. Excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue in the breasts is removed in order to bring them into proportion with the rest of your body and reduce the discomfort or pain that often accompanies large breasts.
Women with extremely large or pendulous breasts frequently suffer from back or neck pain, and their bra straps may dig into their shoulders. They may also suffer from skin irritation or rashes along the skin folds and creases around their breasts, and the weight or size of their breasts can even interfere with their ability to lead a physically active life.
If you are seeking smaller breasts, you are not alone. Dr. Edward Piña of Houston can use a technique with minimal risks of scarring for the most aesthetically pleasing results. If you are also interested in more youthful contours and fullness, the reduction can be performed along with a mastopexy, or breast lift procedure, and SmartLipo for tighter, perkier results.
