Small Bother or Full-Blown Burden | When Does Breast Reduction Become Necessary?

Countless women go through life wishing they had a larger, fuller bust line.  Some women, on the other hand, have the opposite problem.

Breast Augmentation is the number-one surgical cosmetic procedure in the US.  But, don’t let that fool you into thinking that bigger is always better.  So, when do large breasts become “too much of a good thing?”  When they start affecting your mental and physical health adversely.

Here are some of the top complaints among women with breasts that are too big:

  • Improper posture
  • Back pain
  • Bone issues
  • Breathing problems
  • Low self-esteem

Suffering from these symptoms?  It may be time to schedule a plastic surgery consultation.

“Lollipop” Breast Reduction

Thankfully, for women living with overly large breasts, plastic surgery can offer a solution: Breast Reduction Surgery.  Traditionally, however, a breast reduction requires three incisions per breast:  one around the areola, one from the base of the areola to the bottom of the breast and finally, a large anchor-shaped incision beneath the breast.  While this technique can certainly prove effective, our practice is proud to offer a cutting-edge alternative: the “lollipop” breast reduction.

Borrowing its name from the shape of the incision, a lollipop procedure requires only two incisions and eliminates the horizontal anchor-shaped incision.   What does this mean for the patient?  Less scarring!
