Back pain, neck pain and shoulder discomfort are often due to large, pendulous breasts. The excess breast weight may leave indentations on the shoulders. Unusually large breasts can make a woman or teenage girl feel extremely self-conscious.
Breast reduction (mammaplasty) removes fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breast, making them smaller, lighter and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to give the woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body. Dr. Hardaway can provide you with specific information on how she would proceed in based upon your body type and breast size.
