Breast Reduction Surgery: Booster dose of self-confidence – Case Study

What is breast reduction Surgery?


A breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) is a procedure that decreases the size of your breasts.

Some people with very large breasts experience pain in their back, neck or shoulders and other physical symptoms that affect their quality of life.

It also impacts their self-esteem and sense of well-being as they are scared to wear clothes of their choice or go out for physical activities.

In breast reduction surgery, we remove breast fat, tissue and skin to achieve a breast size that’s more comfortable for you.
