Chronic Back, Neck, and/or Shoulder Pain

There is only one place to begin when it comes to breast reduction surgery, and this is with the fact that it can help to reduce chronic shoulder, neck, and/or back pain. When a woman’s breasts are large, especially in relation to the rest of her body, it can place a lot of stress on the back, which can cause chronic pain that can impact everyday life. This makes breast reduction surgery an obvious choice for a lot of people.  

Improved Proportions and Self-Image

Another reason why you may want to consider breast reduction surgery is to improve your proportions, ensuring that your body does not look top-heavy any more. For some women, this can cause them to lack self-esteem and confidence. Breast reduction surgery can restore this. 

Better Mobility and Exercise Capabilities

Another benefit of opting for breast reduction surgery is that it can improve your mobility. If you feel that your breasts are getting in the way of your ability to exercise and move about freely, breast reduction surgery can truly change your life in this regard, ensuring nothing stands in your way of an active lifestyle.  

Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction?

One thing that you will want to know if you are considering breast reduction surgery is whether or not you are going to be a candidate for this treatment. If you have breasts that are large in size and they cause discomfort or pain, or they are impacting your ability to enjoy an active life, you may be a suitable candidate for breast reduction surgery. A good candidate for breast reduction surgery is someone who is a stable weight, a non-smoker, and healthy. It is also critical that you are not breastfeeding. You also need to have realistic expectations as well, which is something that Dr. Holley will discuss with you during your consultation.
