Large breasts can cause back pain and neck pain and can even stop some patients from leading active lives. If your bra straps are digging painfully into your shoulders, your back or neck hurts because of the weight of your breasts, or your breasts are getting in the way of daily activities, you could benefit from breast reduction surgery.
Breast reduction surgery involves removing fat, tissue and skin from the breasts through liposuction or other surgical methods. Once size is reduced, the nipple is repositioned.
The results of breast reduction are long-lasting; however, weight gain can increase breast volume even after a reduction.
