It is a surgical operation that women with large and heavy breasts seek in order to get relieved mainly from the symptoms of extra weight and the feeling of pain in the back and neck areas. Breast reduction is the solution to these problems while it improves the shape and size of the breast so that the new breast is much more proportionate to the rest of the body.
Am I a suitable candidate for breast reduction?
Candidates for this operation are women:
With very large breasts (and sagging) in proportion to the rest of the body.
With heavy, large breasts where the nipple is pointing down.
Women who have one breast larger than the other.
Women with back and neck pain due to the weight of the breasts.
Women who are not happy with the breast size due to the large size and weight.
What is the appropriate age for breast reduction?
Breast reduction is performed after the completion of the breast’s full development, which is usually until the age of 18 years.
Pregnancy and lactation can have unpredictable consequences regarding the size and shape of breasts.
Therefore, many women with large breasts choose to undergo the operation before getting pregnant.
Any changes to the new breast after pregnancy can be easier arranged.
