In my plastic surgery practice, I have many, many patients who want larger, fuller breasts. However, I also have many patients who would like their breasts to be smaller. Very large breasts, especially on small-framed women, can cause neck pain, back pain, painful indentions on the shoulders, rashes, problems with exercise, self-consciousness and embarrassment.
If you feel your breasts are too large, especially if they have become cumbersome and uncomfortable, breast reduction surgery can be a very effective solution. As well as reducing the size and weight of your breasts, this procedure also improves the shape of your breasts and nipple areas, allowing you to feel good about yourself and your appearance, sometimes for the first time.
It’s also important to know that I perform breast reduction on men as well, usually due to a condition called gynecomastia in which male breasts are abnormally enlarged.
