Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery can help reduce chronic neck, shoulder and back pain caused by the weight of large breasts. Surgeons remove excess fat, tissue and skin from breasts while also lifting them to sit higher on the chest. The procedure is typically an outpatient procedure, so you can recover in your home. Our surgeons use the most advanced research, technology and techniques to achieve the best size and shape possible for you.
