What is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast Reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that permanently relieves physical and emotional discomfort associated with large breasts. By removing excess skin and breast tissue, Dr. Papanicolaou can artfully reshape the breasts to be smaller, lighter, and more proportionate to the patient’s frame.
In addition to physical discomforts such as back and shoulder pain, overly large breasts can cause emotional and psychological distress, such as low self-esteem, weight gain, and self-consciousness due to undesired body proportions. Breast reduction surgery involves removing excess breast tissue, excess fat, and skin and reshaping the remaining tissue to create a smaller and more proportional breast size.
Women choose to undergo the plastic surgery procedure for a variety of reasons, including:
- Physical discomfort, such as neck pain
- Shoulder grooves from bra straps
- Difficulty with physical activities
- Self-esteem issues
- Difficulty finding clothing that fits
- Breast asymmetry
- Medical conditions
While getting breast implants can improve the quality of life for many women with lighter breasts, those with exceptionally large breasts can benefit from the surgery to alleviate some of the aforementioned conditions and concerns. For example, drooping breasts can be caused by excess weight, leading to discomfort and low self-esteem. The procedure can help make heavy breasts perkier and more lightweight.
