Breast Reduction Procedures in Miami, South Miami & Coral Gables, FL
What Is a Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure used to reduce breast size due to discomfort and, in some cases, severe pain. This procedure may be a solution to physical ailments such as neck and back pain, allowing more freedom in physical activity. It can also make large breasts more proportionate to the rest of a woman’s body.
About Breast Reduction Surgery
- You will require anesthesia.
- The type of incision used will depend on your surgeon’s preference and the size and shape of your breasts.
