How Do I Know If I Need a Breast Reduction?

Conroe & The Woodlands patients that come to Dr. Myers sometimes tell us that they feel forced to endure the pain and problems that come from having oversized breasts. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Here are a few criteria that may indicate you’re a fantastic candidate for breast reduction surgery.

  • Neck, back, and shoulder pain directly caused by your large breasts.
  • Your bra straps make deep grooves in the skin on your shoulders.
  • It’s difficult to find a wardrobe that fits your frame.
  • You have skin irritation under your breasts.
  • Chronic headaches.
  • You find it hard to breathe sometimes because of the weight of your breasts on your chest.

How Is Breast Reduction Surgery Done?

The whole point of breast reduction is to relieve any symptoms that result from having larger breasts and also to increase the beauty of your breasts. To do that, Dr. Myers removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to get a breast size that fits the proportions of your body and to relieve any of the discomfort you may experience from having overly large breasts.

One thing we want to point out is that there are a few different surgical techniques to accomplish these goals. Dr. Myers will talk with each patient and create a customized treatment plan that is unique to you, your breasts, and your health. Depending on all of these factors, the specific technique that Dr. Myers uses will be suited specifically to you. If you have a particular surgical technique that you would like utilized, make sure you discuss that with Dr. Myers.

What Are Some of the Most Common Benefits of Breast Reduction?

Conroe & The Woodlands women will notice several very important benefits from their breast reduction surgery.

Physical Symptoms

Overly large breasts place a lot of weight on the chest. This imbalance not only impacts your posture and your breathing, but it can also cause changes to your spine and your muscles. Removing the burden on your muscles and skeletal structure will offer tremendous improvements to your upper body strength, posture, and your spinal health while also erasing chronic headaches, lower back, neck, and shoulder pain.

Exercise and Sleep

Conroe & The Woodlands women who don’t suffer from overly large breasts have no idea how difficult it is to run, exercise, and even sleep. Finding a comfortable position in bed is almost impossible. Exercising with extra weight on your chest can be exhausting–especially if your breasts make it difficult to breathe.

Improved Self-Esteem

This is one of the crucial reasons that Dr. Myers is so passionate about his practice. Women with large breasts experience social anxiety and low self-esteem because of their oversized breasts. With breast reduction, Conroe & The Woodlands women often feel better about themselves and experience a huge boost in confidence.

What Happens After Breast Reduction Surgery?

Dr. Myers performs his breast reduction surgeries in an outpatient facility. That means you’ll go home after the surgery. You’ll require a driver for the ride home as you recover from the anesthesia.

From there, Dr. Myers will give you a detailed list of instructions regarding your recovery after your breast reduction. You will have a follow-up appointment in our clinic the next day after your surgery.

You will feel tired and in some pain for several days after the operation, and your breasts may stay swollen and sensitive for a month or longer. You will need to rest and avoid strenuous activity for a specified amount of time, usually several weeks after the surgery.

Most health insurance companies exclude coverage for cosmetic surgical procedures such as the breast reduction or any complications that might occur from surgery. Please carefully review your health insurance subscriber-information pamphlet.
