When To Consider Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is an effective way to reduce the size of the breasts. This surgery is typically chosen for health or cosmetic reasons. It is important to understand what this procedure involves and whether you are a good candidate for it.

Why Is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

The goal of breast reduction is to remove fat, breast tissue, and even skin from around a patient’s breasts. Women often have this procedure performed to reduce their breast size in an effort to fix back problems and other health challenges that they may be facing. Regardless, if you are curious whether breast reduction surgery might be right for you, there are a number of key factors to keep in mind.

When To Consider Breast Reduction Surgery

One of the biggest signs that you should consider breast reduction surgery has to do with having breasts that are either bigger or heavier than you would like them to be. If the size of your breasts is causing mental and emotional problems or making you feel self-conscious, this surgery may be a good option for you.

Another major sign that you may want to consider a breast reduction is that your breasts are causing you pain in some way. Many women with large breasts experience pain in their back, although this can also manifest itself in your neck or even your shoulders. At that point, it becomes a quality of life issue, and having a breast reduction becomes a very good idea.

Beyond that, you may want to consider a breast reduction if your breasts make it hard to find bras, shirts, or other clothes that fit appropriately. You would also want to consider this if you regularly get rashes below your breasts that you would like not to have to deal with any longer.
