Heavy breasts place a burden on your back, neck and shoulders and can undermine your self-confidence. They may also make it difficult to fit into your clothes. Using advanced reduction techniques, Dr. Gallas can sculpt your breasts into a smaller, more attractive and comfortable size, allowing for a natural appearance.
Breast reduction surgery (reduction mammoplasty) is a common plastic surgery procedure that removes the fat, glandular tissue and excess skin, giving women smaller, lighter and firmer breasts that are in better shape and proportion to their bodies and help alleviate problems with activities, health and clothing. The procedure can also help achieve symmetry where breasts are not equal in size. The oversized-breast condition (breast hypertrophy) typically occurs in both breasts at puberty (or soon after) and can make some teenage girls and young women very self-conscious. Specially designed bras can relieve some of the discomfort; however, the bra straps tend to irritate the shoulder area.
Breast reduction can help women whose oversized breasts cause medical problems, including back and neck pain and postural problems. They allow a more active lifestyle, increased self-confidence and improved self-image (especially in teenage girls and young women) and the ability to find better-fitting clothes. A reduction also helps women whose large breasts disrupt sleep, restrict movement and interfere with routine activities and women whose breasts hang against the underlying skin, causing irritation, rashes and infections. In some cases. breast reduction procedures may be covered by insurance.
