Why Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction surgery can reduce breast size and reshape them so they are in proportion with your body. This surgery also can relieve discomfort that large breasts can cause.
Breast reduction surgery may help you if:
- Your breasts don’t match your overall body frame.
- Your breasts are causing you to suffer from neck, back or shoulder pain.
- Your breasts are too heavy and point downward.
- Your breasts are different sizes.
- You feel uncomfortable and unhappy with how your breasts look.
Breast reduction surgery offers you improved proportion, you will feel better about your appearance and you will find it easier to work out. In many cases, your breathing will improve following breast reduction surgery. Clothes will fit properly and you will gain self-confidence.
Potential drawbacks to breast reduction surgery are:
- Some patients experience decreased sensation.
- Breast-feeding may be difficult.
At Transformations Plastic Surgery, Dr. Pryor and our team will discuss the various benefits and potential drawbacks of your surgery, so together we can select the best procedure for you.
Many women who opt to have breast reductions have had children or may be overweight. For others, heredity may play a role. Often, large breasts run in families.
Here are some reasons many patients consider having breast reduction surgery:
They suffer from backaches, neck pain or irritated skin beneath their breasts.
- They have trouble breathing.
- They have shoulder grooves left behind from their bra straps.
- They suffer from poor posture.
- They experience numbness in their breasts.
- They find it hard to find clothes and tops that fit properly.
At Transformations Plastic Surgery, we’ll review your medical history and make sure your overall health is good before recommending breast reduction surgery.
This surgery also is extremely personal. It’s important to enter the process with an open mind and realistic expectations of what can be achieved. We find that most patients benefit from this procedure and are happy with their results.
Recovery from breast reduction surgery varies from patient to patient and depends on her or his condition coming in, as well as the patient’s aesthetic goals. Dr. Pryor will thoroughly review the recovery process with you so you will know what to expect in the days and weeks after surgery.
Breast reduction is for patients whose breasts have stopped developing. Also, most patients who undergo breast reduction are done having children. That’s because becoming pregnant and giving birth can change your breasts. If you plan on having children in the future, Dr. Pryor will be happy to discuss this with you and how it can impact your plans for surgery.
Other factors that may determine whether you should have breast reduction surgery include:
- Irregular mammograms.
- Undiagnosed masses or lumps.
- Being severely obese.
- Clotting issues.
- Heart problems.
- Circulation problems.
For most patients, your breasts will stay the same size after breast reduction. But significant weight gain or loss can impact results. At Transformations Plastic Surgery, we work to maintain relationships with our patients long after their procedures to ensure they are doing well.
If your large breasts are causing you pain or making you feel self-conscious about your appearance, breast reduction surgery can help change your life for the better.

All patient results may vary. Breast reduction is performed for cosmetic purposes only. All patients are different and in no way will any procedure nor their recovery be alike for everyone.
