Breast reduction surgery improves physical and psychosocial well-being in young women undergoing surgery for concerns related to excessively large breasts, according to a study published in the September issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Laura C. Nuzzi, of Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and colleagues analyzed surveys from 512 female patients ages 12 to 21 years who had undergone reduction mammaplasty between 2008 and 2017.
