Reduction Mammaplasty, also called Breast Reduction, can be a life-changing procedure for women who have disproportionately large breasts. Women with overly large breasts often deal with a number of physical discomforts as a result of the excess weight on the chest. Neck pain, shoulder pain, and back pain, as well as painful grooves in the skin from bras can all weigh a woman down. Physical activity can be more uncomfortable and painful and finding clothing that fits appropriately can also be very difficult. For some women, the physical discomfort is second to the emotional discomfort they feel about their large breasts. Whatever the motivation, the important thing is that the decision is coming from the woman herself and that it is a decision that has been well thought out and researched.
Ideal candidates for the breast reduction are fully developed, non-smokers, in good mental and physical health, with realistic expectations for the procedure and its potential outcome.
