Large, heavy breasts can cause neck and back pain, skin rashes, and deep indentations in the shoulder from bra straps. The procedure for a breast reduction is similar to that of a breast lift, with a similar incision and relocation of the nipples to a normal position. If heavy breasts are causing you pain or other medical problems, this procedure may be covered by your insurance. Reductions vary in complexity. Dr. Yearsley will be happy to go over this with you during consultation.
Breast Reduction for Men
Men can also develop enlarged breasts, which can be reduced to a more masculine appearance by a reduction procedure or through liposuction.
