How to Tell if You Would Benefit From a Breast Reduction Surgery

With Instagram and other social media outlets taking over virtually every part of our lives, it can be hard not to get online and size up every part of your life to famous bloggers and celebrities; especially when it comes to your body. For so long, it has seemed like breasts are what have really made a woman, which is why breast augmentation surgery is still so popular. And even though having larger breasts can enhance your self-esteem and make you feel a little bit more like an Instagram celebrity, we also have patients who suffer from pain and irritation because of their breasts. Luckily, with a breast reduction surgery from The Plastic Surgery Group Of Rochester, we can help reduce the size of your breasts to give you back some comfort and confidence in the process. If you still aren’t sure if a breast reduction is right for you, this article will list a few ways to tell if you can benefit from a breast reduction surgery.

You Have Back Pain

Whether you have breast implants or not, having large breasts can cause a lot of back pain. If it feels like your breasts are placing a lot of pressure on your upper back because of all of the extra weight, then you would probably benefit from a breast reduction.

You Have a Poor Self Esteem

Does it feel like your breasts make you look curvier than you are? Do you feel like it’s hard to find clothes that fit your large breasts? Or do you just feel like your breasts are so big that they are all anyone ever looks at when they’re talking to you? Even though large breasts can help increase your self-esteem, there are some instances in which large breasts may also hinder it. With a breast reduction, we will be able to reduce the size of your breasts so that you, hopefully, feel a little bit more confident afterward.

When we perform a  breast reduction at The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester, we reduce the size of your breasts to help alleviate these problems without getting rid of too much breast tissue.
