Many women with overly large breasts must deal with physical issues on a daily basis. They suffer from back, neck, and shoulder pain, trouble sleeping, posture problems, and more. Reduction mammaplasty, also known as breast reduction surgery, gives patients lighter breasts, relieving these issues and improving patients’ daily lives.
Reduction mammaplasty can involve removal of many types of tissue. Patients with overly large breasts have excess glandular breast tissue, excess fatty tissue, or a combination of the two.
Excess glandular tissue must be removed using surgical excision. Fatty tissue can be suctioned out using liposuction. Additionally, any excess breast skin can be trimmed away using a scalpel.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Beth Collins, a skilled medical professional, regularly helps patients correct oversized breasts using reduction mammaplasty surgery. If you would like to arrange a consultation regarding this procedure or any of the others that we offer, contact us today.
