Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty can lift and reshape your breasts while eliminating excess weight and bulk. The breast reduction procedure involves reducing the breast size by removing fat, skin and tissue making them smaller, lighter and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple (commonly known as nipple reduction).
Women with large, pendulous breasts are the most common candidates as the weight of their breasts can cause neck, back, shoulder, circulation or breathing problems. The weight can also cause discomfort with bra straps digging into the skin.
Breast reduction surgery will give women smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of the body.
The Ministry of Health in Ontario may cover the expense for breast reduction surgery if there are significant medical symptoms related to breast size.
