Breast reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a powerful procedure designed to alleviate physical and emotional discomfort caused by overly large breasts. Women with disproportionately large breasts often experience various ailments, including chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain, posture problems, and difficulty finding well-fitting clothes. A breast reduction involves the removal of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin. Dr. Cheah then lifts and tailors the remaining tissue to create a more proportionate and balanced breast size. In doing so, it addresses these physical discomforts but also offers significant psychological benefits, boosting self-esteem and body confidence. The procedure is highly customizable and tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Patients often feel immediate relief after surgery following the reduction in breast size and are often able to resume their normal activities shortly thereafter with renewed comfort and enhanced quality of life. Ultimately, breast reduction surgery empowers women to embrace a more comfortable, active, and confident lifestyle, free from the burdens of overly large breasts.
