Large breasts can cause physical problems such as back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, poor posture, excessive sweating, rashes and infection under the breasts, marks or grooves on shoulders from bra straps or the inability to take part in exercise or sporting activity.

Breast Reduction or reduction mammoplasty removes excess fat and skin from the breasts to reduce their size. The aim of the operation is to create a natural shape and retain as much function and sensation in the nipples as possible.

Women have breast reduction surgery for a variety of reasons such as the physical and psychological problems which come with particularly large breasts. For these women breast reduction surgery can significantly improve the quality of their life.
