Good Candidates for Breast Reduction
If you want to reduce overly large or sagging breasts that cause back pain or difficulties with posture, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction. This procedure not only reduces breast size by removing excess fat and tissue, but also enhances the shape and proportions of your breasts. With more than 25 years of experience in plastic surgery, Dr. Bernard Shuster can create a custom treatment plan to make your breasts smaller, firmer, and lighter. Whether you are self-conscious about your breasts or just want to improve your overall look and feel, Dr. Shuster can help you meet your goals.
The best candidates for breast reduction surgery often suffer from:
- Shoulder, neck, or back pain
- Rashes underneath the breasts
- Poor posture
- Difficulty finding bras that fit
- Bra straps digging into your shoulder
- Limitations in physical activity
The procedure, when performed by Dr. Shuster, only takes about three hours to complete. He can also perform a breast reduction with liposuction instead, which lasts about one hour or less. In addition, the results of breast reduction surgery are mostly permanent.
One of the other things to consider if you are thinking of getting breast surgery is if you are prepared to go through a surgical procedure. Breast reduction surgery may be right for you if you:
- Are in overall good health
- Can withstand general anesthesia
- Don’t smoke or can avoid smoking during recovery
- Have reasonable expectations for your results
- Are not pregnant or planning to become pregnant
- Can limit your physical activities during recovery
During your initial consultation, Dr. Shuster will go through the different aspects of the procedure and recovery to help determine if you are a good candidate. He will also provide you with aftercare guidelines that will ensure you recover optimally.
