A breast reduction is a surgery that makes your breasts smaller. During breast reduction surgery, your surgeon makes an incision around your nipple and removes some of the fat, tissue, and skin from your breasts, often using liposuction.
Depending on how much tissue is removed, your surgeon may reattach the nipples into higher or more symmetrical positions. They might also reduce your nipples’ size in order to be more consistent with your reduced breast size.
After breast reduction surgery, many patients report some relief of their chronic back pain. Many patients also say that they feel that their body looks more proportionate or that the surgery restored their confidence.

Your surgeon may advise you to postpone the surgery if you’re trying to lose weight or if you intend to give birth in the future.
