Overly large, heavy breasts can be problematic because the weight and size of the breasts can lead to secondary health issues. Large breasts can contribute to back pain, neck pain and other problems like skin irritation. For those looking for relief, there is reduction mammaplasty.
Patients with breasts weighing in excess of 500 grams each have a condition called macromastia. Patients with breasts larger than 1,000 grams each have gigantomastia. This procedure can correct these issues.
Reduction mammaplasty, more commonly known as breast reduction, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of overly large breasts. The result of the procedure is lighter, lifted breasts and a more proportionate figure.
Speak with Dr. Babak Moein to learn more about reduction mammaplasty.
