Breast Reduction in Kalamazoo at Parkway Plastic Surgery

The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness sometimes associated with having large, pendulous breasts is as important an issue to many women, and teenagers, as the physical discomfort and pain.

Also known as reduction mammoplasty, this surgical procedure removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size that is in proportion with the body, and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

Overly large breasts can cause both health and emotional problems in addition to self-image issues. The weight of excess breast tissue can cause physical pain and discomfort and impair one’s ability to lead an active life. Several techniques are available for reduction of the breast size and reshaping of the tissue. The details of the procedure will be based upon the evaluation and discussions regarding specific goals and future plans.
