Many women feel that their breasts do not match their overall body physique. Perhaps they experience discomfort because of large and droopy breasts or they are displeased with the changes to their breasts which come about through normal aging, after pregnancy or following menopause. Two surgical procedures are available in such cases, a breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) and a breast uplift (mastopexy).
