Less Really Is More

Published on April 1, 2014

Too much of anything can cause problems, and if you doubt that, just ask any woman who has overly large breasts. When it comes to THAT topic, less really is more! Overly large breasts (aka macromastia) are a very real problem for women of every age, and breast reduction surgery performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon could be your answer to that problem.

So, what is breast reduction? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast reduction surgery (also known as reduction mammoplasty) is the removal of excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with macromastia. Additionally, reduction mammoplasty is among the most commonly performed breast plastic surgery procedures.

You might be asking yourself, “Why would I want to have a breast reduction?” Well, let’s look at the problems associated with overly large breasts. Women with this problem can often experience:

  • back and neck pain
  • skin irritation
  • shoulder indentation marks from bra straps
  • breathing problems caused by the weight of breasts
  • challenges of finding clothing that fits properly
  • lowered self-esteem
  • difficulties when it comes to exercising and living an active life

Doesn’t sound like much fun, does it? The good news is that help is available, and there is quite a bit of positive feedback on the value having this procedure, too, some of which is linked below:

  • women who undergo breast reduction are among the most highly satisfied of all cosmetic surgery patients
  • 80% of women rate results as ‘good’
  • 86% of patients consider breast reduction to be “worth it.”
  • overall satisfaction with outcome
  • boosts self-esteem

Macromastia can alter many facets of a woman’s life, and it seems to me that this is a perfect example of less being more.
