Here’s what you should know about getting a breast reduction.
If you’re a woman who often deals with discomfort and pain as a result of large breasts then you may be considering a breast reduction. This procedure can provide you with the relief you need while also helping you feel more confident in your body. From the office of our Elmhurst, IL, (along with Oakbrook and Hinsdale) board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis, here are some factors that could determine whether a breast reduction is right for you. Learn more by contacting Aesthetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
Breast Reduction Is Available to Everyone
Most people assume that breast reductions are only for women with large breasts; however, this isn’t always the case. If you’re someone with medium-sized breasts that still cause you back and shoulder pain or interfere with running or other physical activities, then you may want to talk to our Elmhurst, Oakbrook, and Hinsdale IL, plastic surgeon about whether a breast reduction could help.
Breasts Change Over Time
Adolescence isn’t always to blame for large breasts. Our bodies are always changing and growing as we age, and life changes such as pregnancy can also greatly increase a woman’s breast size. If your breasts feel too heavy, cause you back pain, or start to droop after pregnancy, a breast reduction can fix these issues and improve the shape and size of your breasts. Talk to your plastic surgeon in Elmhurst, Oakbrook, and Hinsdale, IL.
Breast Reduction for Uneven Breasts
Do you have one breast that is significantly or visibly larger than the other? If so, you may choose to get a breast reduction to mirror the size and shape of the smaller breast. While some women may choose to get breast enlargement to improve symmetry, if you’re looking to minimize the size of your breasts then a breast reduction is a better option.
