A breast reduction is usually performed for patients with overly large breasts who are experiencing pain, discomfort, or lifestyle inconveniences as a result. Some women with breasts that are too large for their body frames have difficulty exercising or finding clothes that fit well, and many have chronic back, neck, or shoulder pain. Breast reduction surgeries involve the removal of breast tissue to create a more proportionate bustline. In some cases, a breast lift will also be performed to help ensure the decreased volume does not cause the breasts to droop or sag.
If your main concern is the position of the breasts and a “drooping” appearance rather than the size of your breasts, a breast lift is likely more appropriate for you. This surgery is designed to eliminate inelastic skin and reposition the breasts on the chest wall as well as reposition the nipples for a firmer, more youthful appearance. During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. David L. Durst will carefully listen to your goals, review your options, and help you decide which procedure is best for your needs and goals.
