What is the goal of breast reduction?

Women who are dealing with large breasts understand how much they can impact their day-to-day lives. In addition, men who have excess breast tissue, known as gynecomastia, may also be seeking a solution. Both men and women interested in breast reduction can contact Dr. Frank Ferraro and his team at Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey in Paramus, NJ to discuss their needs.

What is the goal of breast reduction surgery?

Simply put, breast reduction is performed to reduce the amount of fat and breast tissue present. For women with larger breasts, it may also include skin removal and repositioning of the areola. During the initial consultation appointment with our surgical provider, patients will discuss their specific needs and the final results they desire. We will assess an individual to ensure they are a good candidate for breast reduction before scheduling their surgery date.

Why might someone want breast reduction surgery?

Men with gynecomastia and women with large breasts may find that they attract the wrong kind of attention. Women may also deal with back, shoulder, and neck pain due to the weight of the breasts on their body. Seeking a smaller breast size can also help them in participating in certain activities that may also be uncomfortable, such as running and exercising. Additionally, both men and women find that they are able to find clothes that fit them better after having breast reduction completed.  Breasts that are impeding one’s ability to live an active lifestyle or feel confident in their own skin can be addressed with surgical interventions, and many women who undergo this procedure wonder why they never considered it earlier in their lives!
