Breast Enhancement : Breast Reduction

Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight-from back and neck pain and skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems.  Bra straps may leave indentations in their shoulders.  Large breasts can make a woman, or a teenage girl, feel extremely self-conscious.   Breast reduction surgery, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for such women.  The procedure removes fat, breast tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and perkier.   It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple.  The goal is to give the woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body.   The operation creates a scar around the areola, down the front of the breast, and occasionally in the fold under the breast.  These scars are permanent, but usually fade over time.  Despite these scars, women who undergo breast reduction surgery are among Dr. Kind and Dr. Chang’s happiest patients.
