Considering breast reduction surgery?

Thinking of having breast reduction surgery? Are you a woman living in the San Francisco Bay Area that suffers from large over-sized breasts? Electing to have breast reduction surgery can alter your life for the better.

You may be a good candidate for breast reduction if you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Breasts that are too large in proportion to your body frame
  • Heavy, pendulous breast with nipple and areolas that point downward
  • One breast is much larger than the other
  • Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts
  • Skin irritation beneath your breasts
  • Indentations in your shoulders from tight bra straps
  • Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of your breasts

Most women that elect to have breast reduction surgery in San Francisco report significant relief from the typical aches and pains associated with over-sized breasts in their shoulders, neck and back.  In addition, large breasts can distort a woman’s posture, and make breathing more difficult.

In psychological terms, ungainly stares and rude comments can make these women self-conscious and prone to low self-esteem. Not only are there significant physical improvements, but mental ones, too

Before surgery, many women are either unable to participate in physical activity or tend to shy away from sports or activities that make them feel uncomfortable. After the surgery however, many women find that the ability to exercise has profound effects on both their mental and physical well being. In addition, many women find new confidence in their ability to wear clothes they wouldn’t have been able to without the surgery.

While the goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce the volume and weight of the breast, maintaining the shape is an important part of the process. A consultation with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr Shahin Javaheri, is a great option if you are thinking of having the surgery. At the consultation, Dr. Javaheri will educate you about breast reduction surgery, answer any questions you have, as well as discuss your goals and expectations.  To schedule your appointment, call his friendly staff today at 415.923.3800
