What is a Breast Reduction?
A breast reduction (also called reduction mammaplasty) is a surgical procedure to reduce breast volume. If you experience any discomfort or unhappiness from excessively large breasts, a breast reduction may be exactly what you’re looking for. Some women seek a breast reduction for more than aesthetic reasons. Breasts that are too large and heavy may cause pain and shoulder strain, or even cause a “widow’s hump” from the effects on your posture. Please also see Male Breast Reduction.
Breast reductions and other types of breast surgery are available at our cosmetic surgery centers in Nashville and Memphis. Each of our board-certified plastic surgeons has over 25 years of experience with breast reductions, lifts, augmentations, and more. Whether you are looking for a breast reduction or another breast procedure, we encourage you to meet with our plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
