Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems, caused by the excessive weight, from back and neck pain or skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. Bra straps may leave indentations in women’s shoulders. Additionally, unusually large breasts can make a woman, or teenage girl, feel extremely self-conscious. breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for such women.
The breast reduction procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to achieve the look of smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion to the rest of the body.
