Large breasts that cause an imbalance in the natural proportions of a woman’s body can result in multiple unwanted consequences. Aside from back and neck pain, which is reason enough for surgery, self-esteem and overall happiness can also be at play here. When a patient is disproportionately heavy in the breasts, her posture can become poorer over time. Opting for a breast reduction may be the healthiest way to improve one’s long-term mental and physical well being.
During a breast reduction procedure, the patient is under anesthesia as plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Lee removes excess tissue, fat, and skin while carefully recontouring the breasts. This provides a firm, youthful perkiness that better fits the proportions of the patient’s body. During this process, it’s common for the surgeon to also reduce the size of the areolae while keeping the sensitivity and function of the breasts intact.
So whether it’s an aesthetics issue or a health issue that leads you to the operating room for a breast reduction, remember that Dr. Lee has got you covered. For a consultation in the Newport Beach area, please contact our office today!
