Breast reduction surgeries are the surgical procedures that are performed in order either to correct aesthetic appearance or to solve problems concerning the breast size and breast weight in females. Breast size may make difficult socialization of females by leading psychological problems due to the problem of selecting adequate clothes and due to the different outer appearance. Beside the psychological aspect, big breasts can cause physiological problems such as skin rubbing, posture disorders related with breast weight, low-back and neck pains. Furthermore, irritation in skin formed by the bra straps yielded from the breast weight and itching and rashes related with sweating may also disturb the females in their social lives. Breast reduction surgeries are performed in order to solve all of these problems.
