Signs You Could Benefit from a Breast Reduction

How big is too big? There’s no one-size fits all answer! Consider the following questions when trying to decide if a breast reduction is right for you:

  • Do your breasts cause you physical pain and discomfort? Particularly pain in your back, neck, or shoulders?
  • Do your breasts limit your physical activity?
  • Are you self-conscious about the size of your breasts?
  • Do your breasts hang too low, resulting in stretched skin or enlarged areolas?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, contact our plastic surgeon for a consultation and to schedule your breast reduction in the Maryland area.

The Breast Reduction Process

Breast reduction is used to decrease the size of breasts that are too large or disproportionate to the individual’s body frame. In addition to reducing self-consciousness, this reconstructive procedure can also alleviate back pain, improve posture, and make everyday activities more comfortable.

Breast reduction is commonly performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Side effects are temporary and may include discomfort, swelling, bruising, and numbness. Most patients can return to work and normal activities in one to two weeks. Your plastic surgeon can explain the risks associated with this procedure and answer your questions about scarring.

Breast Reduction with a Breast Lift

Depending on your desired surgery outcomes, a breast reduction can often be combined with a breast lift for maximum results—creating a smaller, more youthful, and uplifted shape.

Our plastic surgeon might recommend a breast lift along with your reduction if you’ve experienced any changes or losses in your skin’s elasticity from:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Aging in general

Male Breast Reduction in Maryland

Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, is a common condition, affecting thousands of American men to varying degrees. Fortunately, gynecomastia can often be treated through male breast reduction, a procedure performed to reduce excess breast tissue in men using either liposuction or direct excision methods. It is an excellent option for men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, leaving them with a chest that is flatter and firmer.

Typically, male breast reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Temporary side effects may include bruising, swelling, and numbness, and most patients are able to return to work and normal activities in as little as one week.
