Why Get a Breast Reduction?

Those in the Maryland, PA area who suffer from large, heavy breasts often endure neck pain, skin irritation, posture problems, painful physical activity, and other issues. Thankfully, there is a procedure that can solve these problems: a breast reduction. Here, we will cover the main aspects and many benefits of this surgery.

Why Breast Reduction Surgery is done

Breast reduction surgery is done to help those with heavy and large breasts to feel more comfortable in their day to day lives. Heavy breasts can cause a constant pull on bra straps, leaving painful indentations in the skin. Excessively large breasts can also cause exercise and other physical activities to be difficult or painful. Furthermore, large breasts may be out of proportion to a person’s the height and weight, making it difficult to find well-fitting clothes. They may also cause self-consciousness and embarrassment, especially in teens and young women.

How it’s done

Breast reduction surgery is generally done under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. It involves removing excess tissue and skin from the breasts, and sometimes involves liposuction. Breast reduction can also be combined with a breast lift to produce a youthful shape.

Breast Reduction


Those who decide to undergo breast reduction surgery are regularly very satisfied. Not only do they walk away from surgery with smaller, lighter, and more proportioned breasts, they are also much more comfortable performing everyday activities. Furthermore, their self-esteem often skyrockets! Results from a breast reduction surgery are long-lasting, but pregnancy or fluctuations in weight may change the shape and size of breasts.

If you are located in the Maryland, PA area and are uncomfortable with the shape and size of your breasts, schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg today. He will determine if breast reduction surgery is right for you!
