Women with exceptionally large breasts may be struggling with a condition known as macromastia. In the extreme case, some women can experience an assortment of health problems as a result. Some of the more common issues macromastia can lead to are back and neck pain, skin chafing, severe sagging of the breasts and even psychological depression. To combat these concerns, a breast reduction is a surgical option that can lessen the size and weight of overly large breasts.
Breast reduction surgery may involve excision, liposuction or a combination of both. When only liposuction is involved, the procedure is called a lipectomy. A lipectomy is ideal for breast reduction when only a minor reduction in volume is needed. The procedure is also a good option if you are concerned about the incisions involved with surgery.
Contact experienced plastic surgeons Drs. Bryan and Kara Criswell at their Charlotte office if you want to know more about which breast reduction procedures are right for you.
