Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty in the medical community, is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin from your chest. A reduction mammaplasty can make you feel more confident and relieve back, neck, and shoulder pain. Here are some things to consider if you're thinking about having a breast reduction.

Similarly, if your excess tissue restricts your activity, such as running, causes nerve pain, or causes chronic pain that necessitates pain medications, this procedure can significantly improve your quality of life.
