Breast reduction surgery is one of the most requested treatments due to the benefits it brings. Many women will have big breasts, which can lead to various health complications. The weight of the breasts puts extra tension on the muscles in the back and neck, causing chronic pain throughout your life. Undergoing breast reduction surgery can restore your breasts to a smaller size, giving you more freedom and less pain.
Breast Reduction Overview
Reduction mammaplasty is the opposite of breast enhancement treatment. The procedure will reduce the size of your breasts and make them fit your body a lot better. This surgery needs to be performed by a licensed surgeon as it involves an almost complete reconstruction of your breasts. Incisions are made in the breast tissue, and excess fat and glandular breast tissue get removed. Dr. Brenman will then reshape the breasts to make them a more natural look and size. Nipple repositioning is usually required, and the results are visible right away. Your breasts will look smaller, feel lighter, and be more proportionate to your body.
Benefits of a Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery can drastically improve your life. It may provide a confidence boost for women who feel self-conscious of their overly large breasts. When breasts are really big, they start to sag a lot more and lose some of their perkiness. A breast reduction can undo this and provide perkier and firmer breasts.
Furthermore, it has lots of health benefits that change the way you go about your daily life. Large breasts are heavy and have been linked to the following problems:
- Chronic back pain
- Chronic neck pain
- Breathing difficulties
By reducing the size of your breasts, you lift this tension from your body. Some candidates have seen instant relief straight after surgery – they claim a weight has been lifted from their shoulders. Without the extra tension and weight, less stress is put on your lungs and chest cavity, relieving any breathing problems. This can give you a new lease of life as you’re able to do things that you couldn’t do before. Many women with big breasts struggle to walk around for long periods because of the stress their breasts put on their back muscles. Now, you can live life to the fullest and be free from your pain.

Am I a Candidate for a Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction surgery can suit many different women. If you experience any back or shoulder pain due to large breasts, this can be the only way to find relief. Or, if you’ve been self-conscious about the size and shape of your breasts, a breast reduction can restore your confidence. This surgery is also ideal if you struggle to find clothes and bras that fit your breasts. This is a problem for lots of women, so a breast reduction will allow you to finally fit into clothes.
Dr. Brenman does not recommend this surgery for anyone who is obese, has certain medical conditions, or has a fear of surgery. It is an invasive procedure, so you will be left with scars on your breasts – albeit they will be hidden as much as possible. If you don’t want any scars, this won’t be suitable for you.
“After losing 87 pounds I decided I would treat myself and get a tummy tuck that I have been wanting for some time. I researched and thought Dr Scot Brenman would be best. Well suffice it to say I am not thrilled with my results. Ultimately my tummy is flatter which was what I wanted but my belly button is 2 inches above the incision line which I hate! He promised lipo which til this day I’m betting he didn’t do! Also his aftercare was thee WORSE! He never followed up with me after the removal of my drains! No way will he receive another one of my hard earned dimes!” *
