If naturally large breasts are causing you to experience physical pain or emotional embarrassment, it might be time to talk to a professional about a plastic surgery procedure known as a breast reduction. Breast reduction is a surgical treatment sometimes referred to as a reduction of mammaplasty, and provides women with smaller breasts that fit their body frame, eliminate pain, and allow them the freedom to participate in activities that they might otherwise have been unable to participate in. Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee and her team in Huntington Station, NY work routinely with women ready to reduce the size of the breasts and regain their quality of life!
What is achieved during the breast reduction procedure?
The breast reduction procedure involves the removal of excess fat and glandular breast tissue to reduce the overall size of the breasts and achieve symmetry. During the procedure, the nipples and areola may also be repositioned to ensure a natural appearance and keep them from pointing downward due to the weight of the breasts. This treatment can be lifechanging for women who have struggled with larger breasts.
