Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael has helped countless patients achieve a trimmer and more appealing appearance thanks to a wide variety of surgeries, including breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty), a breast enhancement surgery for large-breasted women.

Our team would like to take a few moments right now to consider the ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery and why they may benefit from undergoing it.

About Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that reduces the size and improves the overall shape of breasts that are too large and/or pendulous. It is performed for a variety of cosmetic and health reasons.

Breast reduction is similar in breast lift surgery in that it uses a similar series of incisions that form an anchor shape, though it differs in that it focuses more on reduction of size and removal of tissue rather than simply enhancing the perkiness and pertness of the breasts.

General Candidacy Concerns for Breast Reduction Surgery

As with other cosmetic surgery procedures, it is important for patients to be in good overall health and not suffer from any kinds of medical problems or systemic conditions that would make the surgery or the recovery process troublesome.

Patients should also have realistic expectations about the surgical process and what it can achieve. There will be visible scarring after the breast reduction is performed, though much of this scarring will be concealed by undergarments and bathing suits.

Breast Reduction for Back, Shoulder, and Neck Pain

One reason that women undergo breast reduction surgery is body pain caused by large breasts. Much of this has to do with the stress and strain on the lower back, which carries much of the body's weight. Reducing breast size and volume can help ease the burden on the lower back significantly.

Neck pain and shoulder pain are also possible due to the stress on the upper back and the effects of large breasts on overall posture. Similarly, large breasts can cause bras and other kinds of tops to dig into the skin of the shoulder and neck area.

Breast Reduction for Disproportionate Body Contour

Another reason to consider breast reduction surgery is to improve the overall proportions of your body contour. Disproportionately large breasts can throw off a woman's figure, and a good cosmetic option for revision is breast reduction surgery. This helps improve the ratio of chest, waist, and hips, resulting in a generally more appealing silhouette regarding body curves.

Breast Reduction for Self-Consciousness

Issues with body contour and figure can lead to unwanted attention and self-consciousness. This will often lead to problems with self-confidence and self-esteem in many women, particularly if they have experienced these issues for years. Breast reduction is an ideal option for such matters.

Breast Reduction Following Major Weight Loss

After losing a lot of weight, the size and shape of the breasts can be affected. By this we mean drooping or sagging breasts. In these cases, a surgery that combines the principles of breast reduction and breast lift is often performed, improving the bustline's appearance and size. This cosmetic surgery is often part of other body lift procedures that enhance overall body contour by removing loose skin and stretchmarks.
