According to a recent survey of breast reduction patients, the results of breast reduction may lead to significant improvements in a patient's health and quality of life. The study results were published in this month's issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®.

Using a special type of questionnaire, researchers asked a few dozen women to respond to survey questions both before and after breast reduction surgery. Survey respondents reported:

  • Improved satisfaction with breast appearance
  • Improved ability to exercise
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced pain

If you have overly large breasts, you may experience physical symptoms such as discomfort while exercising. Having breasts you feel are too large can also impact your self-esteem and the way you feel about your body. With breast reduction, you can have proportional breasts with an overall improved breast shape. Please visit our breast reduction gallery.

According to this study, it seems this group of women showed significant improvement in physical and psychosocial areas, as well as improvement in satisfaction with the appearance of their breasts. The only way to know for sure whether breast reduction can achieve your unique goals is to visit our experienced plastic surgeons. We can help you decide if breast reduction will produce the result you want to see.
