Women who undergo a breast reduction are often some of the most satisfied plastic surgery patients. They experience improved self-image, more comfort with exercise and sports, and more freedom with clothing styles. By reducing and lifting overly large breasts, this surgery improves the symptoms of back, shoulder and neck pain, commonly associated with this condition. Women, from teenagers to the twilight years, can experience an improved quality of life following a breast reduction.
However, there are disadvantages to the surgery, including permanent scars on the breasts, decreased nipple and skin sensation, and the inability to nurse a baby. Fortunately, some newer techniques provide the opportunity to limit the scars in certain situations. At your consultation, Dr. Schwartz will be glad to thoroughly discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the various techniques and recommend a treatment plan.
