In many cases, large breasts can cause ongoing pain in the neck, shoulders, and back, and even cause shoulder rashes from pressured bra straps. At Los Angeles Center for Cosmetic Surgery, skilled plastic surgeons offer breast reduction surgery at the practice’s Downtown Los Angeles office. By surgically removing excess fat or skin from the breasts, patients can find pain relief and achieve a more proportional figure.

Breast reduction surgery, or mammaplasty, is a procedure that removes excess fat, skin and glandular tissue from breasts. Many women opt for this procedure when their breasts appear overlarge or out of proportion with the rest of the body, or when they suffer back pain or shoulder pain. Many people with heavy breasts also have deep troughs in the shoulder tissue where bra straps have exerted significant pressure.
