Breasts that are overly large can cause physical and emotional distress for women. The weight of excess breast tissue can cause pain and discomfort in everyday life and may limit your ability to engage in physical activity. A breast reduction procedure aims to reduce the emotional and physical problems caused by overly large, pendulous breasts.
A breast reduction procedure:
- Removes excess fat, glandular tissue and skin
- Creates a more proportionate body profile
- Alleviates discomfort caused by an overly large breast size
Candidates for this procedure are healthy individuals who don’t smoke and have experienced back and shoulder pain and discomfort, limited physical activity caused by large breasts, skin irritation below the breast crease or are simply dissatisfied with their breast size.
The results of a breast reduction are relatively permanent, and you should quickly experience relief from the pain and discomfort your felt prior to surgery. You may also experience increased self-confidence with your better-proportioned figure. As you age, it is natural for the breasts to change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormones or gravity.
