Are You a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?

Disproportionately heavy breasts can cause everything from chronic back pain to difficulty finding bras and clothing, but cosmetic breast reduction surgery could provide relief.

At Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, our patients often express how elated they are to have a literal weight off their chests. Studies back this up, with over 95% of breast reduction patients reporting satisfaction with their results. 

How Do You Know if You Need a Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is a personal decision. Whether you want to reduce your breast size for cosmetic or medical reasons, the choice is up to you. 

This procedure could be a great option if:

  • You have chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain.
  • Methods to reduce discomfort, like wearing supportive wide-strap bras, haven’t worked.
  • You get skin irritation or rashes under your breasts.
  • You have a hard time finding bras and clothing that fit.
  • Discomfort from your breast size prohibits you from living an active lifestyle. 
  • You feel your breasts are aesthetically disproportionate to the rest of your body.
  • You want a more lifted profile in addition to smaller breasts.

Our providers will discuss the benefits and limitations of breast reduction surgery at your consultation so you can make an informed decision about whether it would improve your quality of life. 

Who Shouldn’t Get Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is a common procedure that our board-certified cosmetic surgeons have safely performed countless times. However, it’s not recommended you go through any cosmetic procedure if you have unmanaged underlying health issues. We also recommend patients quit smoking before any surgery.

If you’re planning to lose a significant amount of weight or want to have children in the future, it’s best to postpone breast reduction surgery. Both can affect your breast size, and some women have more difficulty breastfeeding after the procedure. You should also wait until your breasts stop developing, which may not occur until your early 20s.
