Medical Problems

Skin irritation, skeletal deformities, and neck discomfort are all medical issues associated with very large breasts. Bra straps may leave uncomfortable shoulder imprints. Heavy breasts also add to poor posture, which can lead to long-term health problems. Large breasts can interfere with exercise. Excessive breast size may also lead to self-confidence issues. Breast reduction is the remedy for all of these problems.

Breast reduction plastic surgery can also be used to fix breast symmetry. Our cosmetic surgeon and experienced staff can correct these problems so you can live a happier and healthier life.

The Results of Breast Reduction

People undergoing a breast reduction procedure will be put under general anesthesia. The surgery eliminates excess fat, tissue, and skin from the breasts. After the procedure they’ll be smaller, lighter, and firmer. Breast reduction can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple.

Afterward, the breasts are placed in a surgical bra that will hold them symmetrically during initial healing. Initial discomfort subsides daily and can be controlled with oral medications. Scars will fade in 6-18 months. Surgery will likely reduce, but not eliminate the ability to breast-feed.

The result may be further enhanced by liposuction of the axillary area to reduce excess fat deposits. This is commonly covered by insurance. Our staff will assist you in obtaining preauthorization.

Breast reduction produces the most dramatic outcome of all cosmetic surgeries. It ends the physical discomfort of large breasts and makes bodies appear more evenly proportioned. Clothes will fit better. Your new image will take some getting used to, as much as you desired the change. Give yourself—and your family and friends—time to adjust to the new you and, like most women, you will enjoy the benefits.
