Signs That You May Be a Candidate for Breast Reduction

Posted on December 1, 2018 by: Dr. Ronald DeMars

Signs you need a breast reduction

Breast reduction is one of the most rewarding procedures Dr. Ronald DeMars performs at his Portland plastic surgery practice. According to the surgeon, breast reduction patients are frequently the happiest group in a plastic surgeon’s practice due to the many improvements in lifestyle they experience following the procedure. By removing excess fat and glandular tissue, breast reduction alleviates the physical and emotional discomfort caused by excessively large and heavy breasts.

If you have been considering breast reduction but are unsure of whether the procedure will address your concerns and goals, read on as Dr. DeMars explains some of the signs that breast reduction may be an appropriate solution.

You Experience Chronic Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain

It is not uncommon for breast reduction patients to complain about persistent neck, shoulder and back pain caused by the weight of their overly large breasts. To avoid the pain, some women slouch and experience poor posture.

You Get Skin Infections or Rashes Due to Your Overly Large Breasts

It’s normal for sweat to accumulate under the breast crease. However, larger breasts make it harder for sweat to evaporate, leading to rashes and infections associated with bacteria buildup.

Exercising Is Uncomfortable or Even Painful

The repeated bouncing during running and other high-impact exercises hurts your breasts. Some women find the pain and discomfort so unbearable that they avoid exercise and other physical activities altogether.

You Are Self-Conscious About Your Breasts and Overall Appearance

Do you feel your large breasts garner unwanted attention from other people? Do you find yourself hiding your breasts under loose or baggy clothing? Or, perhaps you avoid certain social activities because you are self-conscious about your breasts. Do you feel your excessively large breasts do not match your otherwise small or petite body? These are all common concerns Dr. DeMars hears from women seeking breast reduction.

Breast Reduction with Dr. DeMars

Dr. DeMars is the plastic surgeon women in Portland trust for breast reduction. Following the procedure, his patients experience a surge in self-confidence, as they are no longer self-conscious or embarrassed about the appearance of their breasts. They feel that their new breast size is more proportionate to their body, and as a result, they can wear clothes that flatter their newly improved figure. Physical discomfort is eliminated and women are free to enjoy all of the physical activities they like without the weight of their breasts holding them back.
