Overweight and Breast Reduction Surgery

It’s not uncommon for clients to come into our Orange County office concerned about getting a breast reduction surgery if they are overweight. Frequently just having large cumbersome breasts will lead to or at contribute to gaining excess weight. Large, heavy breasts not only add weight to a person’s body but they can also make is difficult to workout thus making it harder to lose weight in the first place.

Our experience with breast reduction surgery in Orange County is that a reduction of breast tissue often helps remove many of the disabling symptoms of large breasts.  One of the many rewards of breast reduction surgery is that following breast reduction, most individuals become more active as they are able to partake in more physical activities, including working out.  Breast reduction surgery is often used to relieve the pain as well as the physical obstacle of large breasts and many of our Orange County clients go on to lead a healthier life style and continue to lose weight after breast reduction surgery.

Breast reduction surgery in individuals who are overweight is often the first step in a change in life style.  For anyone with large, cumbersome breasts, a breast reduction can significantly improve overall quality of life.  In most cases, breast size stays the same following a breast reduction unless there is significant weight gain following a breast reduction surgery.

In addition to helping remove excess weight and increase exercise tolerance, breast reduction surgery is normally recommended when the excess weight of the breast tissue is causing neck, back and shoulder pain, bra strap grooving, rashes under the breasts, or some combination of these troubles. All of these things can easily be resolved with breast reduction surgery.  This is one of the procedures with highest level of patient satisfaction.
