Take a look at social media or the latest magazine covers and it becomes clear that society tends to glamorize the look of big breasts. But the truth is that disproportionate or large breasts can be painful, uncomfortable, and even embarrassing for many women.
Large breasts often cause chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain. Pain and discomfort can restrict physical activities, like jogging. And along with pain, having a larger chest can make shopping for bras and clothing difficult.
Your breast size is determined by genetic factors, but breasts change over time. Weight changes, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can make your breasts larger than they used to be. Whether you’ve had large breasts since puberty or life has changed them, it’s not uncommon to feel unhappy and embarrassed about your breast size.
If you’re bothered by breast size, it’s time to learn more about breast reduction surgery. Walter D. Gracia, MD, PA is a breast reduction specialist, and our team is here to help you regain confidence in your body with cosmetic surgery tailored to your body.
Breast reduction is an extremely popular cosmetic surgery, and the procedure delivers great results. In fact, over 95% of women who choose breast reduction are happy with their outcomes.
Here are a few benefits of a breast reduction:
The goal of breast reduction is to make your breasts proportionate to your body so they don’t get in the way of your daily life or your confidence. Dr. Gracia reshapes breasts and reduces the size by eliminating excess tissue, fat, and skin.
If heavy breasts caused neck, shoulder, or back pain before surgery, your discomfort should be eased following your procedure. Smaller breasts weigh less, taking the strain off your shoulders and back and eliminating bra straps digging into your shoulders.
Along with removing excess tissue, breast reductions can also lift breasts and give them a more youthful appearance. Dr. Gracia may reshape, reposition, or lift your nipple and areola to compliment your new breast shape.
Lifted tissue and higher nipple placement can revitalize breasts and may be particularly beneficial for women seeking breast reduction following pregnancy and breastfeeding.
If you’re bothered by the size of your breasts, another benefit of breast reduction is enhanced self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery can make it easier to find well-fitting bras and clothing, and you might find that physical activities like jogging are more comfortable with smaller breasts.
Most breast reduction procedures reduce the size of breasts by one to two cup sizes. However, every woman is unique, and Dr. Gracia personalizes your procedure to meet your unique needs and give you the best possible outcome.
Breast reduction is an option for women of all ages, including teens. If a large breast size causes emotional distress or physical pain, a breast reduction could enhance your quality of life.
