Last year, over 100 thousand American women had breast reductions. And it’s no surprise: macromastia- or overly large breasts- can cause psychosocial issues and severe back pain. Even though macromastia can affect women from the onset of puberty, performing breast reductions in women under 21 is still considered to be controversial by some, due to potential minor complications.
