Being well-endowed can be a good thing. However, there is such a thing as “too much of a good thing” when it comes to breast size. Overly large breasts can make it difficult to participate in activities such as sports and can make it challenging to find clothing that fits. Carrying overly large breasts can also negatively affect your posture and cause chronic back and shoulder pain. Lastly, overly large breasts can cause skin irritation and bruising at the location on the shoulder where bra straps dig into the skin.
If you have overly large breasts and are experiencing any of the associated problems listed above, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery.
Breast reduction surgery, also known as “reduction mammaplasty,” is a surgical procedure that can be used to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to bring the breasts more in proportion with the rest of the body and to alleviate the discomfort caused by overly large breasts. For women who are tired of dealing with the burden of overly large breasts, this surgical procedure can be life changing. In cases where breast reduction surgery is deemed “medically necessary” by a doctor, the procedure may be covered in part or in full by an insurance provider.
If you are tired of dealing with the pain and discomfort associated with overly large breasts, talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon today. After a thorough evaluation, he or she can help determine if this surgical procedure is right for you.
