What To Know About Breast Reduction image

Even though large breasts are generally deemed to be desirable in society, many women with overly large breasts may deal with medical issues like chronic back, neck, and or shoulder pain as well as nerve pain and skin irritation. Along with these physical ailments, women with large breasts may feel self-conscious and limit exercise due to depression or an inability to work out comfortably.

What Is Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction is exactly what it sounds like, it decreases the size of the breast. This surgery removes skin, fat, and tissue from the breasts to make them smaller. Reduced breast size can improve self-confidence as well as reduce pain attributed to large breasts. During the surgery, you will be put under general anesthesia for comfort. Your ETPS Doctor will make an incision around the areola. Through this incision, our team will remove the excess fat, skin, and tissue while repositioning the breasts. The areola size can also be reduced to be more proportionate to the new breasts.

Are You A Candidate For Breast Reduction?

If you are unable to perform physical activity, experience pain, and or have skin irritation due to large breasts then you are most likely a candidate for this surgery. Ideal candidates should be healthy individuals who are nonsmokers. The best way to know if a breast reduction can benefit you is by scheduling an appointment with our office.
