Breast reduction is an ideal surgical procedure for anyone who is dealing with health or beauty concerns due to overly-large breasts. One of the most common concerns for women is breast sagging, also known as ptosis of the breast. Women with overly large breasts may also experience issues such as back problems or poor body image.
Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Reps or Burton Sundin if you have concerns about your breasts. With large breast, the effects of gravity and aging become exaggerated. Breast ptosis is measured by the degree that the nipple has descended below the fold under the breast. There are three degrees of breast ptosis, from mild to moderate, to severe.
