Breast reduction is an operation for women who are uncomfortable with the large size of their breasts both physically and mentally. Even at a young age women with overly large breasts can experience sagging, neck and upper back pain, and skin rashes, not to mention social discomfort over their breast size.
After undergoing breast reduction surgery, these same women find that they have almost the exact same body they had before the operation except with breasts that they can be proud of and that do not cause them physical discomfort.
The breast reduction procedure will take two to three hours and is performed in the hospital, but you will be able to leave the same day. New techniques will keep scarring to a minimum. Some of the risks with breast reduction surgery include visible scarring, loss of sensation, and problems healing.
If you have overly large breasts that cause you physical discomfort, please contact board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Ciaravino to schedule a consultation, and find out if breast reduction is the right choice for you. Dr. Ciaravino serves the Houston and Sugar Land, Texas area, but has patients who have come to see him from around the world.
