Breast Reduction, one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed in the U.S., is often done for medical reasons as well as cosmetic ones. Excessively large breasts can put a strain on the neck and upper back, causing chronic pain in some patients. Reducing the weight and size of the breasts can relieve that discomfort and even help some patients improve their posture for even more dramatic results.

Explaining Macromastia

Macromastia is the medical condition characterized by disproportionately large breasts. Some of the symptoms of macromastia might include:

  • Tension and pain in the neck and upper back
  • Recurrent tension headaches
  • Pain in the shoulders and chest wall
  • Tingling and numbness in the arms and hands
  • Skin irritation, rashes and infections underneath the breasts
  • Deep grooves in the shoulders from bra straps

Many women also suffer from poor posture as a result of large breasts, due in part to the heavy weight of the breasts. Women that are self-conscious about the size of their breasts may also hunch over frequently, creating poor posture and adding to the strain on the back and neck. 

Treatment for Macromastia

Non-surgical treatment for macromastia might include pain medication, chiropractic care and physical therapy. However, these treatments only provide temporary relief from the uncomfortable symptoms. The most effective treatment for macromastia is surgical breast reduction, which produces a more proportionate body contour while permanently relieving symptoms. 

Breast Reduction Surgery: Best Long-Term Option

Dr. Mashhadian performs breast reduction surgery at his office on Rodeo Drive. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, which means the patient is asleep throughout surgery. Incisions are made around the areola and underneath the breast, so that post-operative scarring is hidden underneath underwear and bathing suits. 

Through the incisions, Dr. Mashhadian removes excess skin and tissue from the breasts to produce a more proportionate shape and size. The procedure offers immediate results, which will improve over time as the body fully heals from surgery.

Is Breast Reduction Surgery Right for You?

Breast reduction surgery offers a myriad of benefits, including relief from back and neck pain and the possibility of improved posture after the procedure. This surgery has a high patient satisfaction rate and may be covered by insurance if physical symptoms are present.
