Macromastia (very large breasts) can make it difficult to find clothing that fits and can be a source of self consciousness, especially for younger women. Large breasts can spark comments by men and other women that can be embarrassing, even if not meant to be. Very large breasts can make exercising and many sport activities difficult, painful, and in some cases impossible. Breast reduction surgery reduces, reshapes, and elevates the breasts; and this achieves better support and comfort for the patient. The secret to the perfect breast reduction is to make the breasts beautifully proportionate.
