Considering Breast Reduction? Have Your Procedure Performed by Dr. Alissa M. Shulman in Sarasota, FL
The goal of a breast reduction procedure (reduction mammoplasty) is to alleviate discomfort caused by overly large breasts. To accomplish this, a surgeon can remove excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue to make a woman’s breasts more proportionate in size with the rest of her body. In order to achieve the best possible outcome, breast reduction surgery should be fully customized to meet a patient’s unique needs, goals, and preferences. In Sarasota, FL, Dr. Alissa M. Shulman works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan.
As explained by Dr. Shulman, a woman might elect reduction mammoplasty to help her achieve appearance-related goals. However, it’s important to note that a breast reduction procedure can also help with several health-related concerns faced by many women who have large breasts, including:
- Neck pain
- Migraine headaches
- Poor posture
- Stretch marks
- Breathing difficulties
- Numbness and tingling sensations in the arms and hands
Excess weight in a woman’s chest can also interfere with her ability to participate in daily activities, such as exercising and performing certain work-related duties, and breast reduction may be helpful in these instances as well. These are just some of the factors that a woman should consider when determining whether a breast reduction procedure is right for her. For this reason and others, it’s always best to seek the advice and guidance of an experienced plastic surgeon.
