Many women suffer from breasts they feel are too large. In addition to embarrassment and self-consciousness, many women also experience physical symptoms and health-related issues from large breasts. You may be a good candidate for breast reduction if you encounter problems such as:
- Dissatisfaction with the largeness of your breasts
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Chafing and irritation from tight bra straps
- One breast that is much larger than the other
- Physical activity limitation due to the large size of your breasts
One of the benefits of breast reduction is that it can be performed at any age, typically once the breasts have stopped developing. Strong candidates for breast reduction are in good health and do not have any major medical conditions.
If you plan on becoming pregnant soon, you and Dr. Kim should discuss whether to have the surgery now or to wait. Pregnancy can change the appearance of your breasts, and you may want to wait to improve breast appearance after pregnancy, or you may want to have the surgery now.
During your initial consultation, our breast surgeon will assess your medical history and discuss your cosmetic surgery goals to determine if breast reduction is right for you.
