Excessive breast volume in a woman is called breast enlargement. Breasts can become too large at the end of breast growth, during puberty, after pregnancy or after significant weight gain. Often, breast ptosis can be associated with breast enlargement. The breasts are then sagging due to the weight of the breast.
Thus, a breast reduction can be performed as early as the end of puberty. This operation then consists of reducing the volume of the breasts by removing some of the mammary gland. The breasts are then lifted and the skin is re-draped to ensure optimal support of the breasts and to restore the shape of the breasts.
