Breast reduction is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size of overly large breasts. This procedure removes part of a woman's breast tissue. Occasionally, the nipples and areola will be repositioned surgically higher on the breasts for cosmetic reasons. The goal is to achieve the look of smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion to the rest of the body. The alleviation of pain, the ability to participate in more activities and a boost in self-confidence are among the benefits reported by women who undergo breast reduction. Most patients are able to return to sedentary work within three or four days.
