Breast reduction surgery is designed to relieve the physical discomfort and restrictions that result from the weight of very large breasts. Heavy breasts can cause back, neck and shoulder pain. Moreover, they can create skin irritation beneath the breasts, indentations in the shoulders from tight bra straps. It also creates a restriction of physical activity and debilitating self-consciousness.
The breast reduction procedure removes excess breast tissue and skin. It is making the breasts smaller and firmer. The areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple) may be reduced and repositioned.
Breast reduction can be performed at any age. However, Dr Arth Shah usually recommends waiting until breast development has stopped. Childbirth and breast-feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of your breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo breast reduction before having children. They feel that they can address any subsequent changes later. If you plan to breastfeed in the future, you should discuss this with Dr Arth Shah.
