When the breasts are too large relative to your overall body proportions, health issues like back pain, neck pain and skin irritation can occur due to the size and weight of the breasts. For those who are looking for relief, there is a procedure called breast reduction.

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that reduces the size and weight of the breasts to better fit your body proportions. The nipples and areolae can also be raised to a more youthful position.

The procedure is performed by surgically removing excess tissue using incisions around the nipple-areolar complex.

To learn more about breast reduction, speak with Dr. Robert Lowen.
