Oversized breasts are one of the most common complaints that bring women to Dr. Ram Kalus and Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas. Large and heavy breasts force women to carry excess weight that may cause neck, shoulder, and back pain, soreness from bra straps cutting into their shoulders, skin irritation or fungal infections, and general discomfort. Women with large breasts may feel insecure and awkward, and may find it hard to be physically active. Dr. Kalus helps has helped women from Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and Columbia to Greeneville/Spartanburg, South Carolina, and from Charlotte and Asheville, North Carolina by offering breast reduction surgery with both improvement in symptoms and attractive and proportionate results. Breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, can be characterized both as a reconstructive and cosmetic surgery procedure, and insurance will often cover breast reduction surgery. The procedure almost always includes a breast lift component which elevates the nipple to a more proper and attractive location.
If you experience pain, skin irritation or restriction of physical activities from excessive breast size, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery. You may also be a good candidate if your breasts are asymmetrical, disproportionate to your body size or heavy and pendulous with nipples and areolas that point downward. Generally, if the size or weight of your breasts has created dissatisfaction or self-consciousness, breast reduction surgery may be a good option for you.
Breast reduction surgery begins with an incision that circles the areola and continues below to the lower crease of the breast. After removing tissue, skin, and unneeded fat sometimes with the addition of liposuction), Dr. Ram Kalus will tighten the remaining skin around the newly reduced and contoured breast. Breast reduction surgery, which is usually performed on an outpatient basis, usually lasts less than three hours.
