I have met a lot of women over the last twenty years who have had breast reductions. And the most striking thing is that I have not met anyone who has regretted having their boobs reduced. Even the ones who had issues after their surgery would still prefer to have smaller boobs.

If you’re like the women I have spoken with, then you know what it’s like to lug around the heavy weight of boobs around your neck and shoulders. You also know how hard it is to find clothes that fit nicely because so many clothes are made for very small breasts.

And then there’s the confidence issue. So many of us busty women try not to draw attention to our boobs (while some confident women are great at using these large assets!). We are self-conscious of our buxom chests. I had a lot of unwelcome male attention from “sleaze bags” obsessed with big boobs.

Breast reduction isn’t for everyone, but it might suit you if:
  • You suffer from neckback and shoulder pain from having breasts that are too large for your frame
  • You have breasts that, due to their weight, point downwards
  • One of your breasts is larger than the other
  • You are self-conscious about how large your breasts are
  • Your breasts limit your physical activity (running is not fun when it hurts your chest and you need more than one bra to hold your breasts firmly)
  • You suffer skin irritation beneath the breast crease
  • Your breasts hang low and you have stretched skin
  • You have regular indentations on your shoulders from bra straps
  • Your areolas are enlarged due to stretched skin
Benefits of Breast Reduction

There are physical, cosmetic and psychological benefits of breast reduction surgery, including:

  • Reduced back and neck pain
  • Other physical symptoms, such as headaches, should decrease
  • Skin rashes beneath your breast tissue will disappear
  • Exercise and physical activity will become more comfortable
  • Your breasts will be lifted and firmer
  • Your breasts will look more youthful
  • Bras will fit more comfortably and attractively
  • Your breasts will be more in proportion with the rest of your body
  • Stretched areolas and/or large nipples can be reduced
  • Swimsuits, sports bras, and clothes will look and feel better
  • You will probably have more confidence

Another positive thing is that breast reduction surgery has the highest patient satisfaction rating of all plastic surgery procedures. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery survey data, women report being happier and healthier emotionally, physically and sexually after breast reduction surgery.
