Breast reduction is an ideal option for women who are struggling with symptoms caused by large breasts. Women with large breasts are afflicted with macromastia or gigantomastia if their breasts are greater than 500 grams per breasts, according to the Schnur Scale.
Often, women with macromastia deal with chronic pain of the head, neck, shoulders and back. In the larger case of gigantomastia, where breasts are greater than 1,000 grams per breast on the Schnur Scale, many women experience anxiety and psychological depression. Breast reduction surgery can improve emotional health and afford these women the ability to more comfortably perform many physical activities. If you would like to discuss how breast reduction surgery can help you, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Gene Sloan.
