About Breast Reduction
When breasts develop to a volume of more than a liter, they become an encumbrance for which partial amputation is the only treatment.
Although the ratio of breast size to body weight is usually consistent, there are conditions of progressive breast hypertrophy, even in patients who are not generally obese, the causes of which are not known.
This results in uncomfortable, large breasts of a combined weight too great to carry, causing back pain, exhaustion and embarrassment. Breast reduction can be performed in such a way that a reasonably sized and shaped breast can be achieved. Nipple sensation and lactation remain intact, usually, though in rare cases involving breasts with a super-sternal notch to nipple distance greater than 40 centimeters and measuring liters in volume, may require nipple removal and replacement as a skin graft, in which case sensation and lactation are not likely.
