When breasts measure larger than 500 grams each, the size and weight of the breasts can lead to health issues. Overly large breasts, a condition referred to as macromastia or gigantomastia, can cause neck pain, back pain and skin irritation. For those looking for relief, there is breast reduction.
Breast reduction is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to alleviate health issues associated with overly large breasts. The procedure aims to give patients a more proportionate figure by reducing the size and weight of the breasts. This is achieved by surgically removing excess breast tissue. The amount removed is dependent on the patient’s goals and personal anatomy.
