Is Breast Reduction the Right Procedure for You?
Breast reduction surgery is considered a reconstructive procedure, which means that ideal candidates are those seeking to improve symptoms related to breast weight. The added benefit of the surgery is the lifting and shape improvement that the procedure provides.
Breast reduction might be the right procedure for you if your breasts are the cause of discomfort and/or health problems including:
- Neck and back pain
- Restriction of strenuous physical activity
- Breathing problems
- Shoulder pain from uncomfortable bra straps
- Irritation and rashes under the breasts
Often times the physical discomfort can lead to mental and social issues, such as:
- Low self-esteem
- Difficulty performing in the workplace
- Discomfort during intimacy
- Embarrassing social situations
- Trouble finding clothes that fit comfortably or appropriately
Breast reduction surgery is a reliable method to reduce the size and weight of your breasts to provide relief from the above symptoms while simultaneously improving their shape and appearance.
Breast Reduction Procedure & Recovery
Dr. Bottger utilizes a variety of breast reduction techniques depending on your individual needs. Generally the breast reduction procedure involves the removal of excess breast tissue and skin to create a lighter, more elevated and firmer breast.
