Should I Consider a Breast Reduction?
If you have overly large breasts that regularly trouble you and cause you to feel physical pain or dissatisfaction with your appearance, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery. Also referred to as reduction mammoplasty, this plastic surgery involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue from the breasts.
Many women choose to have breast reduction surgery solely because they are unhappy with the look and feel of their large breasts. In addition to reducing and reshaping large breasts, Dr. Barone can also address disproportionately large areolas during breast reduction.
Some candidates for breast reduction experience back and neck pain or soreness because of their breasts. Because of the significant weight their bras must bear, many women also experience shoulder pain as the straps press into their shoulders. Others may also experience difficulty breathing. For these patients, a breast reduction not only provides health benefits, but can significantly improve their quality of life. If you are considering this treatment, we encourage you to become familiar with the risks and benefits of this surgery.
