Too often, society zeros in on breasts as the ultimate feminine feature when there are many other features that all combine to create feminine beauty. Women might focus on breasts when they feel they don’t quite measure up, but it’s easy to forget that some women carry that physical burden with them every day.

If this sounds like you or someone you love, keep reading to learn more about breast reduction surgery.
What is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction surgery may also be called reduction mammaplasty, though both refer to the procedure in which breast tissue is removed. Additinoally, the remaining tissue is reshaped and often moved higher to maintain a natural-looking shape.
Who is a Good Candidate?
If you suffer from back pain, shoulder pain, or have marks from your bra digging into your body, breast reduction surgery could be a great benefit to you. Any woman who is in good health is a good candidate for breast reduction surgery.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
Recovery time for this procedure can vary, depending on the exact procedure performed and each individual patient’s concerns. Often, women recover between two and six weeks, though you should consult your physician about what you should expect.
Why Would I Want Breast Reduction Surgery?
Many women choose breast reduction surgery due to constant pain that stems from the weight of carrying large breasts. After surgery, back pain from carrying large breasts is gone, and many women express that it’s easier to find clothing that fits them properly. Many women become more active and enjoy sports or other physical activities more without the burden of large breasts.
