While media today represents well-endowed women as being beautiful and attractive, for many women, large oversized breasts are something that can cause a lot of pain and anguish. They can cause a woman to feel no just self-conscious, but it can also cause them to feel a great deal of physical pain. It can limit activities, affect daily routines, interfere with work, and can also cause other health problems-particularly in regards to the back and neck and shoulders. Breast reduction can help reduce this impact; it is a procedure that is specially designed to alleviate painful, large, oversized breasts and to structure them to smaller more proportionate breasts that are better for the individual to live with.

What You Should Expect During the Procedure
