Are You a Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?

Published on: August 9, 2016

One of the most common areas to be transformed through plastic surgery is the breast region. However, it is not just breast augmentation that spurs people to consult a plastic surgeon regarding their breasts. Many women are naturally well-endowed with large breasts that can become more of a hindrance than a blessing. In addition, men also seek breast reduction to enhance their appearance. If you are unhappy with the fullness or large size of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for a reduction surgery – here are some indications this surgery may be right for you:

• Pain associated with large breasts. Many women with large breasts suffer with pain due to the extra weight on their chest. Back, neck, shoulder and other pain can often be relieved with a breast reduction.
• Embarrassment or self-conscious over breast size. Both men and women with larger breasts than they would prefer can be embarrassed about the way they look. Reducing the size of their breasts can boost self-esteem and their confidence.
• Ill-fitting clothing. It can be difficult to find clothes that you love when you have large breasts. Even small framed men and women may need larger size shirts to accommodate their breast size, often making them appear heavier than they are.

If you can relate to any of these situations, you may be an excellent candidate for breast reduction. While surgery may seem extreme, the positive benefits can often outweigh any negative aspects of choosing to have plastic surgery. As with all surgical procedures, make sure to choose a highly esteemed and experienced plastic surgeon for your procedure to ensure you get the best results.
