Oversized and extremely heavy breasts can be a problem because the excess weight can lead to separate health issues. For instance, your breasts could pull on your neck muscles, causing upper back pain, or lower back pain if you tend to hunch over to accommodate the heavier weight. Skin irritation can also result. Mammaplasty or breast reduction is the ideal surgery for those craving relief.
Patients with breasts weighing in excess of 500 grams each have a condition called macromastia. Patients with breasts larger than 1,000 grams each have gigantomastia. This procedure can correct these issues.
Reduction mammaplasty, more commonly known as breast reduction, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of overly large breasts. The result of the procedure is lighter, lifted breasts and a more proportionate figure.
