Abstract

Background: Although many studies have shown that breast reduction surgery is effective in reducing neck, back, and lumbar pain, most of these studies are subjective evaluations that usually provide data through pain scales. This study was undertaken to objectively evaluate the radiologic effects of breast reduction on the vertebral column.
