If you have overly large breasts that feel out of proportion with the rest of your body, you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction. Apart from the self-consciousness and embarrassment that often comes with large breasts, many women also encounter physical problems due to the weight of their breasts, such as:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Poor posture
- Chafing and irritation (from bra straps)
Because of these health-related issues, most insurance companies will cover the cost of a breast reduction. In order to be a good candidate for breast reduction, you should be in strong overall health with no major medical conditions. Your skin should also have relatively good elasticity, so it is able to tighten over the new shape of your breasts after breast reduction surgery.
Diabetes, clotting disorders, and other conditions may prevent you from being a candidate for breast reduction. One of our experienced Atlanta breast reduction surgeons will examine your medical history and current health to determine whether or not a breast reduction is right for you.
