breast reduction on the South Shore of BostonBreast Reduction


Large breasts may cause physical discomfort. The size and weight of large breasts can result in self-consciousness, improper posture, pain in the back and neck, indentations from bra straps, and skin rashes under the breasts. Breast reduction surgery is usually performed to provide physical relief from these symptoms. The procedure may be covered by your insurance.

Performed under general anesthesia, the three-to four-hour procedure removes fat and glandular tissue of the breast and trims resultant excess skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in a more youthful position and demonstrate a healthier proportion to the rest of the body.
