What is Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)

Breast reduction 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

A breast reduction is designed to be permanent, so it is important to weigh all options before you have the procedure. However, breast volume can and does change during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Most likely your breast size will temporarily increase and then drop back to the size after your reduction. To learn more, also see Breast Reduction and Male Breast Reduction.

This is a valid question, and much writing has been dedicated to the topic. It has also evolved over time. Today’s surgery techniques are designed to preserve lactation functions, so that breastfeeding is likely not affected after a reduction. However, if you are planning to breastfeed, you should discuss this with your plastic surgeon.

While a breast reduction procedure can be performed at any age, we consider it best to wait until the breasts are fully developed to ensure the best results. We therefore only perform breast reductions on patients who are at least 18 years of age.
