Breast Reduction Surgery Sydney (Mastopexy) - Defy Gravity!
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure, which involves the safe removal of extra fat, glandular tissue and skin, which results in breasts that are smaller, lighter and firmer. The aim is to achieve better-shaped breasts, that are more in proportion with the rest of your body, resting on the desired position of the chest wall. It is suitable for women with large, pendulous breasts who may be experiencing various symptoms due to their breasts size. Symptoms include back and neck pain, notching of shoulders due to bra straps, skin irritation in the breast folds and difficulty in participating in gym activities. Large breasts can make a woman extremely self-conscious about her body.
