What make a good Breast Reduction Candidate?

Breast reduction is unique in the world of plastic surgery due to its medical necessity in many cases. Yes, the right Newport Beach plastic surgeon will also drastically augment the appearance of the breast during breast reduction surgery, but this is not the main operative. Undergoing a breast reduction procedure is a huge decision that should begin with the question: “am I a good candidate for a breast reduction procedure?”

Women in Newport Beach seek out breast reduction for many of the following reasons, if any of these conditions apply to you, you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction.

  • Generally being unhappy or depressed about the natural size and appearance of your breast.
  • The inability to participate in particularly rigorous activities due to your breast size.  Not being able to participate in the things your friends and family do inhibits both physical and mental health.
  • Asymmetrical breast: most every woman has one breast that is slightly larger than the other; a significant disparity between breast size (like a cup or more) is another story entirely.
  • Soar indentations on your shoulders from the weight of your breast being burdened by your bra straps.
  • Skin agitation at the crease of your breast.
  • Extremely disproportionate breast compared to the remainder of your body.
  • Downward facing nipples.
  • Aches and pain in your back, neck, and shoulders due to heavy breast.

If you plan on having children or breast feeding after your breast reduction discuss these plans with your Newport Beach plastic surgeon, as this may alter the incision type your surgeon will choose to use.  Although there is no recommended age for a breast reduction, plastic surgeons advise women to at least wait until they are fully developed and mentally prepared to make such a life altering decision.
