Heavy breasts can be quite a burden for some women, causing back and shoulder pain, as well as inhibiting their ability to dance, participate in sports, or just play with their kids. Large breasts can also make some women feel self-conscious and make shopping for clothes extremely difficult.


What can a breast reduction do for me?

A breast reduction will provide you with smaller breasts in the size you prefer. The procedure will help to improve your posture, reduce back, neck and shoulder pain, and allow you to be more active comfortably. Additionally, it will also give you a more proportional figure, and make clothing fit better.


What can I expect during a breast reduction?

Breast reduction is an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia or a local anesthetic with IV sedation. Most women take one to two weeks off from work, and you will need to sleep on your back during your recovery. You should also avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for a few weeks.
