Many with larger than average breasts choose breast reduction surgery for its cosmetic and physical benefits. Large, pendulous breasts can be uncomfortable and painful, and they can create a top heavy or imbalanced appearance. Breast reduction surgery is a procedure used to reduce the size of the breasts for a more shapely and proportionate silhouette. Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles breast reduction surgeon, can help you decide if a breast reduction is right for you.
Dr. Kerendian, expert in breast reduction in Los Angeles, may recommend a breast reduction if:
• Your breasts are too large for your body frame.
• Your breasts are causing shoulder, back, or neck pain.
• One breast is considerably larger than the other breast.
• Your breasts are particularly dense or heavy with nipples or areolas that point down.
• You are self-conscious or unhappy about the appearance of your large or heavy breasts.
Breast Reduction Los Angeles
At your consultation, Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles breast reduction surgeon, will ask you about your goals. We will examine your breasts and your body to determine the best way to proceed with treatment and the most proportionate size for you. The goal will be to give you more comfortable breasts and reshape them for a more proportionate silhouette. Breast reduction can alleviate the physical discomfort that often accompanies large breasts, improve your breathing and make it easier for you to exercise. After surgery, your breasts will be more proportionate with the rest of your body, may feel firmer, and look perkier.
The technique used for reducing the size of your breasts will vary based on several factors, including the size, shape, and amount of volume you want to reduce. Dr. Kerendian will discuss your options for breast surgery at your consultation. The reduction procedure may be performed alone or with other procedures, such as a breast lift, to improve the overall look of the breasts. The results are designed to be long-lasting, but if you lose or gain a large amount of weight, your breasts may change size again. Gravity and age can also lead to some natural changes over time.
