Large or heavy breasts may cause a woman to potentially experience various medical problems caused by the excessive weight of the breast tissue. Problems with posture, skeletal deformities, back and neck pain, skin irritations, and nerve irritations of the fingers are common with this condition. Bra straps can also often leave indentations in the shoulder area due to the weight of the breasts.
Large breasts can cause pain and discomfort, limit physical activities and make clothing hard to fit. Our reduction procedures can provide outstanding aesthetic results.
Is Breast Reduction Surgery Right for Me?
Many women, especially teenage girls, are very self-conscious if they have unusually large breasts. With breast reduction surgery, women of all ages are able to have breasts that are better shaped and in proportion.
Physical and mental discomfort are both common with women struggling with overly large breasts. Breast reduction surgery can help improve issues such as:
- Physical pain (back pain, shoulder pain and neck pain are common with women who have larger breasts)
- Low self-esteem
- Trouble with physical activity or exercise
If you are unhappy with the large size of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery with one of our Savannah board-certified plastic surgeons. We will work with you and listen to your expectations to ensure that you are happy with your results.
The Breast Reduction Procedure
During your surgery, a keyhole shaped incision will be made around the nipple and down toward the crease below your breast. In order to reduce the size of your breasts, we will have to remove excess tissue and skin. Excess fat can also be removed with liposuction when needed.
