A breast reduction procedure, or reduction mammaplasty can be performed for a number of reasons, including reducing neck and back pain while improving firmness, shape, weight, and size of the breast in proportion to the rest of the body.
Many women have breasts that are too large for their bodies. This can be due to genetic predisposition, breast feeding, weight gain or aging. Common symptoms include chronic back, neck or shoulder pain, exercise intolerance, difficulty finding appropriate fitting clotting, and rashes below the breasts or shoulders grooves from bra straps.
