3 Signs That You Need a Breast Reduction
When it comes to breasts, people always think “Bigger is Better.” However, although that might be true for some individuals, it is actually quite the opposite for others. If you either have large natural breasts or you are regretting getting the size of implants you received, it might be time to consider getting a breast reduction. How can you know if you should speak with your doctor about having a breast reduction surgery? Easy. Look at these 3 signs.
Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgery designed to reduce volume, improve contour, lift the breast and remedy symptoms caused by larger breasts making them lighter and firmer.
- Back and Neck Pain
One thing most people without large breast have a hard time comprehending is the back and pain that accompanies them. If you suffer from chronic back and neck pain due to your heavy breasts and notice that they’re even making you hunch over due to the excessive pain, schedule an appointment with one of our doctors to see if a breast reduction is what you need.
- Difficulty Breathing
Imagine having a small child constantly sitting on your chest while you walk around, sleep, go for a jog, or try to pick up groceries. Large breasts can have a similar effect on women, leaving them grasping for air or with a constant shortness of breath.
If you notice that even the little things or every day activities are leaving you with a shortness of breath due to your large breasts, it’s time to schedule an appointment.
- Skin Rashes and Irritation
Because of both their size and location, with a combination of being overweight and having large breasts, the sweat under a woman’s chest can produce a rash under the breasts–leaving you feeling less than comfortable all the time. If you suffer from chronic breast rashes that leave your skin red and irritated under your breasts, you might want to consider a breast reduction.
If you are suffering from any of these three symptoms due to large breasts, it’s time to schedule an appointment with one of our professionals.

Scared of Plastic Surgery? How Not to Look Like a Real Housewife
Reality TV has taken over the living rooms of many families— both those who watch the shows and those infamous stars who grace us with their drama. With the Real Housewives TV series, it’s easy to become disenchanted by all of the plastic surgery that they have undergone–leaving some of the women resembling more of a Barbie doll than an actual woman. However, if done right, plastic surgery doesn’t have to be frightening or make you look like anything but yourself. By following these tips, plastic surgery can make you look more like a healthier version of yourself.
- Start Simple
If you’re worried about forehead wrinkles and the basic effects of aging that are happening to you, don’t just jump right into getting a facelift. Instead, start simple and have some fillers done such as Botox and Juvederm. That way, you can decide if those fillers are going to give you the effect that you’re going for without having to actually go under the knife.
Plus, your doctor can use fillers to target all areas of the face. For example, your doctor can even inject some Botox under your eyebrow to help raise the sagging skin around your eye area without having to have a surgery like a brow lift.
- Ask Questions
Before you go under the knife, it’s always important to ask your doctor questions. Remember that your doctor is there to not only perform the procedure but to help guide you through the process so that you feel comfortable from start to finish.
For example, if you are considering having breast augmentation surgery, have your doctor explain to you what the different cup sizes will look like and have them factor in your body type. For example, if you have a petite build but are considering a double D cup size, you might look disproportionate compared to if you opted for a smaller cup size like a full C.
- Know When to Stop
Much like with anything else, if you have an addictive personality, you might get addicted to getting plastic surgery— which is what can sometimes happen to these certain reality TV show stars. Before you even meet with your plastic surgeon, step back and address all of your problem areas— that way you can limit any potential procedures to those problem areas that are on your initial list without having to worried about getting carried away.
If you’re considering getting some plastic surgery done but are worried that you will end up looking like a Real Housewife Barbie rather than yourself, follow these three steps and they will help guide you into making the right decisions for yourself.
