Yes: Yes, these areas can be addressed during breast reduction surgery. Very important to communicate your goals and concerns with your plastic surgeon. This is often best done in front of a full-length mirror. Best wishes; breast reduction surgery tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform.
