An excessively full bustline can cause a number of problems, both emotional and physical. Large breasts can contribute to neck, shoulder, upper and lower back pain. In addition, muscle spasms, rashes under the breasts, tension headaches, and poor posture can also be problematic, as well as difficulty exercising, limits to enjoying an active life-style, and undesired attention.
The good news is that breast reduction surgery (reduction mammaplasty) can address many of these issues. What’s more, a breast reduction will rejuvenate by uplifting and contouring the breasts.
There are several techniques for breast reduction with different scar patterns. At your initial consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Tanya Atagi, you will be evaluated for the reduction technique that is right for you. Occasionally, for women with a full bustline but limited sagging, VASER Lipo® is an option for reduction. VASER Lipo® is a less traumatic, state-of-the-art form of liposuction, approved by the FDA.
