Breast Reduction Before & After Pictures in Macon, GA

Women who have overly large breasts often feel as though their breasts are out of proportion in comparison to their figure, making them appear “top-heavy.” For some women with overly large breasts, shoulder or back pain may be a chronic problem. Others have difficulty finding properly fitting clothes, and many encounter unwanted attention and harassment because of their overly large breasts. Fortunately, Dr. Joshua R. Groves, of the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery has already helped hundreds of women in Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area by reducing their breasts to a size that is a better match for their figure.

What Is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction, known in the medical world as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the breast by removing excess breast tissue, fat and skin. The procedure is also often used to reduce the size of the areola, or dark area surrounding the nipple, and in some cases, the areola is also repositioned to accommodate the new breast shape after it has been made smaller. This procedure has been safely performed on thousands of women for decades, and the results are immediate and permanent. In men, breast reduction surgery is called gynecomastia correction surgery and is regularly and safely performed on thousands of men yearly.

Benefits Of Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery is an ideal solution for correcting the silhouette of women who have extremely large breasts that are disproportionate to their figure. For many women, this condition causes chronic back and shoulder pain, while also creating a series of other inconveniences, as well as the very real inconvenience of social embarrassment and negative attention. Breast reduction surgery has been performed safely and effectively in the U.S. for decades and in some cases the procedure is done using only liposuction to extract fat from the breasts. In both men and women, excess breast tissue is not only unattractive by making the chest look sloppy and overwhelming, it can also affect spine health, posture, confidence, and self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery often helps to restore a woman’s self-confidence and self-esteem by eliminating the social embarrassment and discomfort caused by the accumulation of excess fatty tissue in the breasts.
