Large, heavy breasts can lead to a wide range of physical and emotional health problems, including back pain, neck pain, posture problems, breathing difficulties, skin irritation, and low self-esteem. Having overly large breasts may also interfere with the enjoyment of sports and other athletic activities. Our Breast Reduction procedure can help patients unburden themselves from the pain and frustration caused by having large breasts.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction?
The best candidates for breast reduction surgery are women who are bothered by very large, heavy breasts that cause them physical and emotional problems. These problems may include one or more of the following:
- Back and neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Poor posture
- Breathing problems
- Restriction of physical activity
During a consultation at our Fort Lauderdale office, Dr. Sudarsky will evaluate you to determine whether you are a good candidate for breast reduction. She will examine you, ask you questions about your health, and listen carefully as you explain your goals for surgery.
What Does Breast Reduction Surgery Involve?
Performed under general anesthesia, breast reduction removes excess fat and glandular tissue and tightens the skin to reshape the breasts, making them smaller and more proportionate.
The specific details of breast reduction surgery are customized to each individual patient. Dr. Sudarsky may create incisions within the natural fold beneath the breast, around the areola, and from areola down to the breast fold. Then, she reshapes the breast and repositions the areola.
