Breast Reduction Surgery :
Megalo( macro) Mastia or excessively large breasts and large nipple and areola complex,
are not only reason of social embarrassment and low self esteem, rather large breasts make day to day life difficult in terms of hygiene (moisture in
breast fold causing intertrigo) , neck pain , shoulder pain and hypertrophy of back muscles which gives
females a unique hump like appearance & loss of nipple sensation. Breast Reduction surgery gives your normal figure and confidence back and also improves
symptoms due to large hanging breast. So, breast reduction is not only cosmetic surgery rather its therapeutic also.
Moderately enlarged breast may not cause all these problems but they loose natural shape and sensitivity.
Breast Reduction Techniques

( in most cases ) to cosmetically acceptable scar. In Moderately enlarged breasts, reduction can be done without any scar on breast through remote incision.
Breast Reduction & Breast Lift, both are almost always required in same case, and our minimally invasive procedure does both with no scar.

Sagging Breast Lift

In some cases only breast augmentation or enlargement is sufficient. So, Breast augmentation , breast
reduction and breast lift or breast upliftment , all are individualized as per shape size and breast volume of
patient. A generalized rule cant be used for every patient. Almost all cases of Breast Reduction involve breast lift too.
