When Your Breasts Become a Burden

Breast augmentation has been the most popular cosmetic surgery in the U.S. for the past few years. Considering that, it may seem counterintuitive that a woman with large natural breasts would come to Dr. Lipton and seek to have their size reduced.

But large breasts can be a burden, both physically and emotionally. The weight can lead to back and neck pain and nerve damage. Posture is difficult. Clothing is impossible to find. And the undue attention your breasts attract can make you avoid social situations.

Breast reduction surgery with Dr. Lipton will bring your breasts into proportion with the rest of your figure, and can be incredibly freeing emotionally. This procedure can make a huge change in your body image and self-confidence.

What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction is clinically known as reduction mammoplasty. There are two incision options to access and remove excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin to reduce the overall size of the breasts. The breasts are brought up to a higher position on the chest, not unlike a breast lift, and the nipple/areola complex is repositioned. In most cases, Dr. Lipton also reduces the size of the areolae.

Would breast reduction be right for you?

Many women have struggled their entire life with large, heavy breasts. They can cause a number of physical and psychological problems for a woman. Here are some specific symptoms that could point toward the need for breast reduction:

  • Backaches
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Spinal problems
  • Tingling in the hands

If you find yourself avoiding certain types of exercise or certain sports because of your breasts this could be a good procedure. Also, if you find that you’ve been avoiding certain social situations, either personally or at work, because of the undo attention your breasts garner, reduction could be very rewarding for you. Bottom line? If your large natural breasts are interfering with your life, reduction surgery with Dr. Lipton could be a great change and make you feel as if you’ve had a burden lifted.
