Large breasts can result in self-consciousness, improper posture, pain in the back and neck, indentations from bra straps, skin rashes, and skeletal deformities. Breast reduction surgery is usually done to provide physical relief from these symptoms. Performed under general anesthesia, the procedure removes fat and glandular tissue, and trims excess skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in a healthier proportion to the rest of the body. Since breast feeding and pregnancies exaggerate the large breasts, Breast Reduction Surgery is not recommended for women who intend to have more children. The total length of the scar has become much shorter thanks to the new techniques. Breast reduction surgery requires about three to four hours of general anesthesia as an outpatient.
