Why Consider Breast Reduction? By Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons on December 17, 2019

Disproportionately large breasts can cause both physical and emotional distress for patients. Patients with large breasts may experience physical discomfort resulting from the weight of their breasts. The resulting pain can make it difficult for some patients to perform common physical activities. Along with the physical discomfort and limitations of macromastia (large breasts), some patients may also suffer from emotional distress as a result of their disproportionately large breasts.

Breast reduction surgery improves size, shape and the associated conditions of large breasts that include:

  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Shoulder grooving from bra straps
  • Restricted physical activity due to breast size
  • Skin irritations beneath the breasts

Although medically necessary breast reduction which may be a covered benefit under your insurnace policy is often performed to address the above functional issues, patients who do not have the symptoms of macromastia (large breasts) but are unhappy with the size of their breasts can still pursue breast reduction as a cosmetic, self-pay procedure.

To learn more about breast reduction, we invite you to visit our website.  If you are interested in breast reduction surgery, contact us. During the consultation process here at Carmel Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeons with Dr. Grasee or Dr. Bergman, we will be able to discuss all of your options with you in more detail. Your needs will differ from the needs of other patients and it is only in person that a full assessment of your needs can be made.
