Breast Reduction Surgery: Reduce very large and uncomfortably heavy breasts

These concerns can be improved with breast reduction surgery. Reduction surgery can remedy breast size, and mediate excessive breast weight and droopiness.

Breast reduction procedures also provide many women with enhanced overall body proportions and more choices in clothing.

Dr Tom Robbins may also recommend a breast lift procedure along with your reduction, to help you achieve an optimal result.

Today, an increasing number of women are identifying that they feel their breasts are not in proportion with their overall body shape.

For many women, changing their proportion enables them to feel more feminine and comfortable.

Breast reduction surgery can significantly improve quality of life, alleviating pain and social, physical and psychological stress that can be caused from having large or heavy breasts.

Breast reduction (or reduction mammoplasty) has been found to improve the health, confidence and self-esteem for women who are concerned their breasts may be too large.

We often find after breast reduction surgery, women will say “I should have had this done years ago!”
