Female breast reduction, medically known as reduction mammoplasty, is an operation to reduce the weight and volume of female breasts.

The procedure entails removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breast to make them lighter for the women suffering from neck, shoulder or back pain. Breast reduction surgery also reshapes the breast and nipples to give them youthful and perky appearance. Heavy breasts are also the cause of embarrassment and low self esteem in many women. Breast reduction surgery helps women to get rid of the pain in neck, back or shoulders and boost their self esteem. Most women say that they feel good and confident about themselves after breast reduction surgery. 

Breast size is proportionate to the body in most women, but some women have particularly large breasts which could be due to genes, hormones or being overweight.

It is worthwhile to know that the growth of your breasts is stimulated by the hormone oestrogen. And you can thus witness the growth of breasts during adolescence, pregnancy, after menopause or because of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Many women also develop a remarkable asymmetry (difference in size or shape) between their breasts.

Breast reduction surgery also corrects the asymmetry in the breasts; it helps women who are not happy with the size, shape, weight or saggy breasts by making them shapely, smaller and lifted. However, since the size changes with your weight and hormonal imbalance, it may change if you put on excessive weight and become pregnant.

Breast uplift — Breast uplift is the de facto result of breast reduction. Since breast reduction aims at improving the shape, size and making breasts more youthful, breast uplift is done with breast reduction plastic surgery.

A lot of women are confused about what breast reduction does in terms of lifting the breasts. To answer it simply, breast reduction reduces the size of breast, consolidates and improves the shape of breast and lifts the breast.

However, if breast uplift (also known as mastopexy) is done as a standalone procedure, it lifts the breasts, improves the shape but does not reduce or change the size of the breast.

In the nutshell, if you are not happy with the size, shape and sagging of your breasts, you need a breast reduction surgery. However, if you are happy with the size of your breasts, but are only concerned about the sagging breasts, you need a breast uplift surgery.
