Breast Reduction

Women with very large breasts can find them to be both uncomfortable and embarrassing. They develop fungal and heat rashes under the breast, and tired shoulder and back muscles from supporting them. They get in the way when performing some tasks, and make the woman look fatter than she is. Many women gain enormous benefit by having a breast reduction operation performed, and the sooner such a procedure is undertaken, the better.

How to reduce breast size?

There are a number of different ways of reducing the breast size, but in the most common operation, a slice of tissue and fat is removed from the underside of the breast, so that the resulting scar is in the fold under the breast, and barely noticeable. If nothing further was done, the nipple would be left pointing at the floor instead of straight ahead, so a further vertical cut must be made, to allow the nipple to be moved further up the smaller breast. The resultant vertical scar is below the nipple on an area of the breast that is rarely exposed to public view.

After the operation, the woman will feel much more comfortable, she will still be able to breast feed, and no one except her most intimate friends will ever know.
