This procedure produces smaller breasts for the patient by removing fat and glandular tissue from the breast while tightening skin allowing for a healthier proportion to the rest of the body. Women with large breasts who suffer from neck or shoulder pain, breathing problems, poor posture and / or who are unhappy with their appearance would benefit from this procedure. Breast reduction can help patients regain confidence and enjoy a renewed self-image by creating a body contour they are proud of. During your pre-operative consultation, Dr. Barrett will meet with you to discuss your specific goals and desires , as well as to inform you of the details of your chosen procedure.
