Stillwater Plastic Surgery exists to help women feel better in their bodies. Dr. Capizzi notes that sometimes that means breast augmentation. Other times, it means breast reduction, a surgery that decreases the size and shape of the breasts with the removal of excessive tissue. Oversized, pendulous breasts disproportionate to overall body type is a serious issue for many women. In addition to aesthetic concerns and self-consciousness, very real physical problems can result from excessive breast size, including back, neck and shoulder pain, skin irritation under the breast and a limited ability to participate in sports – and life. Some plastic surgery studies suggest a decreased risk for breast cancer among women who have undergone breast reduction. READ MORE
