In our society, it’s a common belief that bigger is better, but that isn’t always the case…

Of all elective procedures performed on women, breast reduction surgery (or reduction mammoplasty) is rated one of the highest in patient satisfaction. The benefits of breast reduction surgery aren’t as widely known as those of breast augmentation surgery, but even insurance companies understand the medical problems involved and many will cover the procedure.

Some of the most common complaints from women with large breasts include back, neck and shoulder pain as well as the fact that their breasts interfere with physical activities and exercise. Even buying clothes can be a challenge when your chest is out of proportion with the rest of your body.

If you have questions about breast reduction surgery, make sure you find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can answer your questions and assist you in obtaining approval for the procedure.

The effort is well worth it as most women will agree.
