Breast Reduction

Breast size in women is determined by many factors such as body frame, weight, genes and hormones. In most women, the breast size is proportional to the body size, but some may have particularly large breasts.

Men also suffer from enlarged breasts in a condition called gynecomastia. So breast reduction surgery is also applicable to them. Breast reduction surgery helps women who are not happy with the weight, droop or size of their breasts. Breast reduction surgery makes them smaller and lifted. The procedure may also be prescribed if the patient is suffering from backache, neck pain, poor posture, inability to engage in sports or excessive sweating.

However size of the breasts changes with body size. After surgery if a woman puts on weight or becomes pregnant, their breasts may again increase in size.
