Breasts develop in puberty. The size and shape of your breasts are primarily determined by your genes. Other factors affecting the size, shape and firmness of your breasts include weight, pregnancy and condition of the skin and mammary gland tissue.
As the skin loses its elasticity, large breasts can easily start to sag. Women considering a breast reduction procedure often have neck, shoulder and back complaints. They may also be unhappy with their large breasts from an aesthetic point of view. A breast-reducing procedure can remedy these complaints, and bring the size of the breasts more in line with the shape of the rest of the body.
The size of women’s breasts is largely determined by their genes, but there are also other factors that play a role, such as body weight, pregnancy, breast-feeding and hormonal changes. Overly large breasts can make women feel extremely unhappy. As a result of their breasts, they may for instance have backache, neck pain, grooves on their shoulders from their bra straps, problems in finding clothes that fit and discomfort when doing physical exercise. In many cases, a breast reduction offers the perfect remedy.
A breast-reducing procedure involves making the breast smaller by removing some of the breast tissue and at the same time performing a breast uplift.
A breast reduction may be an excellent solution for sagging breasts that still have sufficient breast tissue.
