Breast reduction is a popular procedure. In fact, there was a dramatic spike in breast reduction surgeries in 2017, increasing by 11%.

Relieves Pain

Breast reduction surgery can help relieve back and neck pain associated with large breasts. It can also help relieve other symptoms that come with overly large breasts, including rashes under the breasts, marks from bra straps digging into the shoulders, and an inability to take part in exercise or physical activities. The amount of tissue that is removed will depend on the size of the patient, though the final cup size is always just right.

Creates a Boost in Confidence

Living with overly large breasts can cause self-consciousness for many women and can cause shopping for clothes to be a stressful experience. Breast reduction surgery can help women to feel more comfortable in their bodies, resulting in a boost of confidence.

It’s Covered by Insurance

Breast reduction surgery is often covered by insurance plans if patients have symptoms that are not relieved with more conservative measures, like massage therapy or quality sports bras. Before undergoing surgery, there is a process of pre-approval that your surgeon and the staff will work with you to accomplish. This includes submitting documentation from your family physician of the failed nonsurgical treatments.
