There is a large population of women, in Beverly Hills and all over the world, who have a group of symptoms related to overly large breasts. These women experience upper back pain, tense muscles in the neck and indents on the shoulders from years of pressure from bra straps.
Often, overly large breasts, called Macromastia, effect women physically, preventing them for physical sports and exercise. During warm, summer months, rashes can develop under the breasts. Clothes can fit improperly and psychological issues can even develop from taunting during teenage years. Reduction Mammaplasty, or Breast Reduction surgery, is a procedure that is intended to relieve women who suffer from these problems.
Candidates for Breast Reduction include women who have:
- Breasts which are excessively large.
- Sagging breasts from heaviness and weight.
- Indentation on the shoulders from bra straps.
- Disproportionate breasts.
- Chronic rashes in the folds under the breasts
- Asymmetry of breast size
- Limitations of physical activity from breast size
Breast Reduction surgery can be performed at any age once a woman has stopped growing. This usually occurs between the ages of 18 and 20.
