When to Consider a Breast Reduction

A woman whose breasts are simply too large for her frame and unbalanced with the rest of her body might want to consider a breast reduction. Breasts that are too large can inhibit a woman’s ability to move, cause pain in the neck and back, and even irritate her skin. They can also burden her posture and make it hard to breathe. Equally as often, large breasts can make a woman feel self-conscious. At Salameh Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer breast reduction surgery for those who want smaller breasts. We invite you to learn more about this procedure to see if it might be the right course of action for you.

What is a Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction can remove fat, skin and glandular tissue from the breasts; this results in them being lighter, smaller, more comfortable, and more in proportion to the frame. This may also be paired with a breast lift, which not only makes the breasts smaller, but also shapes and tightens them, repositioning them in a way that makes them more aesthetically pleasing. The results can be immediately discernible after the procedure and should become increasingly more evident over the course of the healing process.

Am I a Good Candidate?

A good candidate for breast reduction surgery is a woman experiencing physical discomfort due to enlarged breasts or dissatisfaction with her current breast size. Before the procedure, you can talk to our surgeon to see if you are a good candidate. You can convey what you want from the surgery, and our surgeon will work with you to attain your aesthetic expectations in a safe and healthy way. This will include instructions on what you can do to prepare for both surgery and recovery.
