Heavy, large hanging breasts can often cause severe back, neck and/or shoulder pain. A breast reduction can help alleviate pain and lift breasts for a better proportioned body. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with a breast lift to help lift the appearance of the breasts while also removing unnecessary volume.
