According to statistics released by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there is a steady increase in breast reductions among female patients. Although there was a slight decline a few years ago, they are steadily on the rise. And, one of the things that makes breast reductions so popular is that they consistently have high ratings of patient satisfaction across the board. How can you tell if you’re a good candidate for this type of procedure?
You Suffer From Pain
If you suffer from neck, back, and shoulder pain, then you may be the perfect candidate for a breast reduction. When a woman’s breasts are large, they can place a lot of strain on your back and neck, which causes them to pull forward. This continuous pull forward can lead to poor posture which is what really causes this pain.
You Exercise a Lot
If you live an active lifestyle then having excessively large breasts may be holding you back (almost literally). The excess amount of strain that large breasts can have on your body while you are sedentary is one thing, but if you throw in running, jumping, or moving into the equation then that strain is only magnified.
You Scheduled a Consultation
The ultimate way for you to determine whether or not a breast reduction is for you is to come into our office for a consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Foster will closely examine your breasts and determine if there is enough tissue to remove, and if he thinks a breast reduction in conjunction with a lift or implants is necessary. Also during this appointment, you can ask Dr. Foster any questions about this procedure that you want.
Living in pain isn’t something that Dr. Foster wants for any of his patients. Are you ready to schedule your breast reduction consultation? Call us today at 203-577-6550.
