Large, sagging breasts can be the cause of serious back and shoulder pain for many women. Aside from the physical aspects, women can also feel lower self esteem and confidence due to the over-sized or drooping breasts. Breast reduction involves reducing the amount of breast tissue and is usually combined with a lift to reduce any excess skin and sagging that is associated with larger breasts. During the procedure the nipples are relocated to a higher more desirable position and the areolar size is reduced if needed. There are different incisions that may be used during a breast lift procedure that are chosen after consultation with the surgeon. You can see Dr McCluskey explains the differences between these incisions here!
As you can see the results of a breast reduction are a youthful, lifted appearance. The reduction in size and weight provides relief for back pain and also creates a boost in confidence in many of our patients!
