Have you been wondering if breast reduction surgery is right for you?
As a Plastic Surgeon in Toronto, my patients have expressed to me that they have been thinking about breast reduction surgery for a very long time. Often years! Patients of all ages from 18 to 80 years of age have told me that they had suffered years of physical and psychological pain simply because they do not know where to turn for answers or that they were just simply afraid of the unknown. In recent years breast reduction surgery information has been more readily available especially on the internet. Having celebrities and public figures bravely talking about their breast reduction surgery and experience, has also helped the general public by providing information and taking away the fear of this type of surgery. Notably, celebrities such as Ariel Winter, Drew Barrymore and Queen Latifah have not been shy to share their experience.
Having large breasts can put strain your self-esteem, hinder your daily activities and more often patient complain of pain in their neck, back and shoulders. Some patients find that their daily activities are a chore and exercise is impossible resulting in weight gain and further increasing their breast size.
