Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

DrZ-Back DrZ-PhotoGallery-Breast-Augmentation Some women develop breasts that are larger than they would like. The consequences may be aesthetic-a matronly look with a disproportion between the chest and the rest of the figure. There are also commonly functional problems-back and neck pain, bra strap grooves on the top of the shoulders, a stooped posture, skin changes from chronic moisture under the breasts, and occasionally breast pain resulting from the weight of the breasts pulling away from the chest wall. To address this problem, reduction of the weight of the breast is a welcome relief. Breast reduction, however, must address more than just excess weight. Almost always, the nipple and areola are sitting lower on the chest wall than is proper. The breast shape may be flattened, and there is a surplus of skin, especially when the volume of breast tissue is reduced. This excess skin makes the breast look droopy-called “ptosis.” Reduction of the breasts is one of the most appreciated operations performed by plastic surgeons.
