Some patients who seek a breast reduction may have had large breasts for most of their lives. This can cause chronic back, neck and shoulder pain as well as hinder the ability to exercise. There can be skin irritation as well.
It is never too late to undergo this procedure to alleviate the physical symptoms as well as to regain the exercise ability and to fit better into clothing. Depending on the patient’s breast size, skin quality and body habitus, the specific breast reduction technique, volume reduction and incisions/scarring are planned accordingly.
Liposuction is often combined to aid in smooth contouring of the final breast shape and volume. Recovery is usually quick with this procedure. This is one of the most patient satisfying plastic surgery procedures.
