Breast Reduction

A breast reduction (or reduction mammaplasty) is a procedure designed to reduce the size of the breasts. There are different reasons for considering a breast reduction. Sometimes the heavy weight of the breasts cause back pain and a permanent grooving of the bra straps. Sometimes the size of the breasts limit physical activity and participation in certain sports. Other times the folded breast tissue can cause a chronic irritation or even infection that no amount of powder or topical medicine can help. Over the years a number of different techniques have been developed to deal with the various problems related to larger breasts. During your consultation Dr. Rosenthal will discuss these with you and together you can select the procedure that will give your desired result.
