The female breast is unique to each individual lady. It can be of various shapes and sizes. Sometimes breasts can grow exceptionally bigger relative to the rest of the body. This is medically termed as macromastia or hypertrophy. This can affect the quality of life on women where the heaviness of the mammary glands can cause constant back and shoulder aches, deep pressure marks on the shoulder areas.Treatment: Breast reduction is a surgical technique used to reduce the size to an acceptable size which will suit the patient’s general physique. Some ladies have the misconception that reducing weight may help to reduce the size, however, this does not work as most of the tissue is glandular breast tissue and not fatty tissue.
