Introduction To Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery can bring a woman's figure into proportion so that she can feel better about herself, fit into her clothes nicely and be relieved of the physical problems caused by large breasts.

Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight and poor leverage placed on the chest and spine. Such problems include back and neck pain, skin irritation, skeletal deformities and breathing problems.

Also, a woman's bra straps may leave indentations and cause pain in the shoulders. And, unusually large breasts can make a woman feel extremely self-conscious.

Patient Satisfaction Is High

The improvement in the aesthetics of the breasts and the feel of the body overall can be dramatic for women following breast reduction surgery.

Breast reduction often enhances a woman's self esteem and confidence, and reduces the physical problems caused by large breasts. Because of the wide impact breast reduction surgery can have on a woman's life, the procedure has a very high patient satisfaction rate.
