Breast reduction patients are frequently seeking relief from the problems and discomforts caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Dr. Verga can use breast reduction to solve these problems and improve the size and shape of your breasts. After the procedure, most patients find their breasts to be more proportional to the rest of the body, clothing fits you better, and they are relieved of unnecessary pain and discomfort.
Many women have large breasts that cause discomfort and other problems in their everyday lives. Some of these problems are just annoying while others pose real medical risk. Dr. Verga has treated a wide variety of breast reduction patients over the years, and believes you may be a candidate if:
- your breasts are too large for your body frame.
- you have heavy, pendulous breasts with nipples and areolas that point downward.
- one breast is much larger than the other.
- you have back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts.
- you have skin irritation beneath your breasts.
- the weight of your breasts causes indentations in your shoulders from tight bra straps.
- your physical activity is restricted due to the size and weight of your breasts.
- you are self-conscious about the size of your breasts.
Breast reduction can be performed on women of any age, but Dr. Verga recommends waiting until breast development has stopped. In addition, childbirth and breast feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of your breasts. If you plan to breastfeed in the future, you should discuss this with Dr. Verga during your consultation so he can help you to determine if breast reduction is right for you.
Every year, many thousands of women undergo successful breast reduction surgery, experience no major problems, and are pleased with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks.
Dr. Verga will spend time helping you to understand the position of the scars and the risks associated with breast reduction so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not you want to proceed.
