Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is designed for women who experience medical problems due to overly large breasts. Problems may include back and neck pain, skin irritation, skeletal deformities, and breathing problems. Although the procedure is typically used to alleviate medical problems, it can also help women who feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts.
