Breast reduction (mammoplasty surgery) is a surgical procedure which involves removing excess breast tissue and skin to reduce the size of the breast. This surgery can help relieve the discomfort caused by large breasts, such as back and neck pain, grooves on the shoulders from bra straps and rashes under the breasts.

Breast uplift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure to correct the position of the breast, which involves removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple giving a lifted and more youthful appearance. Drooping breasts can occur after pregnancy, breast feeding and significant weight loss, or can just be a characteristic people are born with.
