Enlarged, heavy, or burdensome breasts, known as macromastia, can lead to physical discomfort, neck and back pain, increased propensity for skin infections, and difficulty finding clothing that fits. Breast reduction (or reduction mammoplasty) is the surgical removal of breast tissue to reduce the size of breasts. This procedure removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
At Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons, we help patients experience lasting relief via breast reduction surgery. We serve the communities of Renton and Maple Valley.
What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Your experience will begin with a consultation, allowing one of our doctors to assess your physical health and confirm your eligibility for surgery.
The procedure itself is performed under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Your surgeon will then create incisions that allow for the removal of fat, skin, and tissue and reposition the breast tissue to ensure an ideal cosmetic appearance.
Ultimately, the goal of the breast reduction procedure is to help you achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
