Breast Reduction Surgery

July 5, 2018

Breast reduction surgery — also called reduction mammoplasty — involves the removal of excess breast tissue to address cosmetic concerns, physical discomfort, and other issues caused by overly large breasts. A breast reduction can reduce back pain, make it easier to live an active lifestyle, and most importantly, make a woman feel better about her appearance.


Women with overly large breasts may suffer from a variety of issues, including the following:

  • Back, neck, or shoulder pain caused by carrying excessive weight on the chest
  • Difficulty performing exercise or other physical activities
  • Trouble finding clothes that fit properly
  • Self-consciousness about the appearance of their breasts
  • Skin irritation under the breast fold

Some women have several different problems due to their large breasts. They may feel self-conscious about going to the gym because their breasts interfere with their ability to exercise, or they may not be able to wear certain outfits because they are insecure about how their breasts look. Some women may become withdrawn and avoid certain social interactions out of fear of getting unwanted attention due to the size of their breasts.

A breast reduction can be used to address any of these concerns by removing excess breast tissue, relieving pressure on the joints, and making a woman feel more confident about her figure.


Women who are considering breast reduction surgery should be non-smokers who are in good health and have realistic expectations about their procedure. You should tell your doctor about the specific issues that you are seeking relief from and the results you are hoping to achieve with a breast reduction.

Women who are planning a pregnancy or who experience major weight fluctuations after surgery may experience changes in the appearance of their breasts. If you have concerns about preserving the results of your breast reduction surgery, mention them to your plastic surgeon during your consultation.


If you’ve been thinking about getting a breast reduction procedure, take the next step by consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. DeLange. Click here or call (561) 776-9555 for more information.
