Breasts that are too large and heavy can be very painful and can cause serious health problems. They can make it difficult to find clothing that fits properly and for many women are a source of embarrassment and low self-esteem. At Gawley Plastic Surgery we understand the very real discomfort that large breasts can cause and offer breast reduction surgery for patients’ comfort and well being.

Benefits of Breast Reduction
If you are in need of breast reduction you may have experienced resistance to the idea from friends and family and even from doctors. Many people find it counterintuitive to reduce an “asset” such as large breasts in a society where so many women seek enlargement.
Do not be discouraged. Breast reduction simply means bringing your breasts into balance with the rest of your body. After surgery, you will have beautiful, healthy looking breasts, and the relief you experience will show. People who do not approve of your decision do not understand the real problems you experience every day which can include:
Bra straps digging a painful groove into your shoulders
Difficulty finding clothes that fit
Embarrassing social situations
Difficulty in the workplace
Discomfort during intimacy with your partner
Talking to Your Partner About Reduction Mammoplasty
Most women find that they are more comfortable with cosmetic procedures if they have the support of their partner or spouse. Breast reduction can be a controversial procedure due to a lack of understanding. Most caring partners will support your decision if they understand the pain and real health problems caused by large breasts. It also helps if they realize how much happier and healthier you will be after your procedure. Breast reduction can actually improve sexual satisfaction for both parties.
Breast reduction is not just an aesthetic procedure. Ultimately, it is an important health decision that is up to you.
