When to Consider Breast Reduction
Having too little of something can be a problem, but so can having too much. Women who suffer from overly large, heavy breasts often experience physical and social discomfort. They may not be able to participate in certain activities or wear certain types of clothing. Large breasts can be painful and can negatively affect your health if you can’t work out because of them. Our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Richards, understands that too much breast can be even worse than not enough. If you’re considering breast reduction, but you aren’t sure if you would benefit, we can help. During your initial consultation, Dr. Richards will evaluate your concerns and determine if this procedure can achieve your goals.
Breast reduction can provide both aesthetic and functional benefits. This procedure may be right for you if your breasts:
- Cause neck, back, and/or shoulder pain
- Are noticeably asymmetrical in size or shape
- Cause you to feel self-conscious due to size and position
If aches and pains follow you around each day; if you notice deep grooves on your shoulders and sides from your bra digging into your skin; if your nipples have begun to point downward due to the weight of your breasts, you may be an ideal candidate for breast reduction surgery.
In addition to addressing these common concerns, breast reduction can also make your breasts firmer and sit higher on your chest. With a more proportionate figure, you may also experience an increase in confidence and be able to engage in more recreational activities, improving your health as well as enhancing your life.
