While many women are looking to add volume to their bust line, some women feel bothered by excess volume. A larger bust has the potential to cause back, shoulder, and neck pain, as well as make one feel restricted by their size in terms of activity and clothing.

What is a Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction is a surgical breast procedure that reshapes and lifts the breasts to make them smaller with the goal of improving proportion and eliminating discomfort. A breast reduction can provide relief physically and mentally if you find oversized breasts are interfering with your life.

Who is a good candidate for Breast Reduction?

There are several reasons a patient may want to decrease the size of their breasts. In addition to making the breasts smaller, this procedure can also be added to a breast lift, if that is a concern along with size. If any of the following concerns sound familiar you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction.

  • You feel that your breasts do not complement your frame because they are too large
  • Your breasts are very heavy and cause back, neck and shoulder pain
  • You feel that your large breasts have gotten in the way of physical activity, clothing choices and your confidence.

Breast Reduction Recovery

Like any breast surgery, you will be instructed to limit your physical activity and depending on how invasive the surgery was. This indication will dictate how many weeks you should limit your activity to allow optimal healing. Following the recommended post procedure care plan will be the best way to ensure proper healing. You can expect the results of this surgery to be long-lasting or permanent if you maintain your current weight to a certain degree and do not have any more children.
