Breast Reduction Surgery
Some patients may have large breasts which can lead to heat rashes and irritation under the breast. The larger size bras required for the heavy breasts can leave deep indented bra strap marks on the shoulder as well as effect patients’ self-confidence. Evidence has shown breast reductions are the most satisfying procedures for patients.
Breast reduction surgery involves removing breast tissue, reshaping the breast and raising the nipples. This can significantly improve patients symptoms.
