Breast reduction | emmett plastic surgeryDr. Jennifer Emmett of Lone Tree, Colorado understands that many women are self-conscious about their appearance, especially when it comes to the size and shape of the breasts. While many patients only think of enlarging the breasts, some women are faced with an opposite problem: breasts that are too large and heavy for their natural frame. At this point, women may consider the advantages of breast reduction surgery. There are several reasons why women decide to move forward with this plastic surgery treatment:

  • Unwanted attention. Women who have larger breasts are often noticed for all the wrong reasons. This attention is often unwanted and causes women to feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts. With larger breasts, women experience difficulties in finding clothing that fits them properly. This results in wearing clothes that are too form-fitting and accentuate their size, regardless of what they choose to wear.
  • Limited clothing choices. Finding tops and dresses that fit a women with larger breasts and a smaller frame can be difficult. Women become frustrated in shopping for clothes because they are often not made with large-breasted women in mind. Instead, women often end up wears several sizes larger to accommodate their chest, and are unable to find clothes that fit them properly.
  • Pain. Large, heavy breasts can cause chronic pain in the neck, back, and shoulder area. Over time, this can become a burden for women who want to be comfortable in their own skin and body.
  • Inability to exercise. Many sport bras are not made to accommodate a larger cup size. Additionally, women with larger breasts may find it difficult to exercise because of the interference of their breasts. Sweating can also be a concern on the underside and creases of the breasts, making women uncomfortable during many activities.
