Overly large breasts can come with a number of health and psychological problems. For the many women whose breasts may measure more than 500 cc each, there can be back problems, neck pain and psychological distress. Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that can alleviate these problems.

Breast reduction surgery aims to reduce the size and weight of the breasts to be more in proportion to the rest of the body. The procedure typically involves general anesthesia or intravenous sedation to ensure the patient’s comfort during surgery. Incisions are made around the nipple-areola complex in a circular or anchor shape. Excess breast tissue is removed, the nipple is repositioned and the incisions are closed.

For more in-depth information about breast reduction surgery, consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Carl Lentz.
