BREAST REDUCTION

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce and lift the breasts by removing excess tissue and repositioning the nipples and surrounding tissue to improve the overall appearance of the breasts. Patients who have nipples that sit below the breast fold or point downwards, have breasts that are asymmetric, have breasts that are heavy and dense causing neck or back pain, and/or have breasts that sag or feel droopy will benefit from a breast reduction surgery. Dr. Crofts will review different types of breast reduction techniques and give a recommendation for surgery at your consultation.
