Minneapolis Breast AugmentationThere is no one breast size that works for all. In fact, some women want it really big while others want a modest breast size that complements their overall look. A lot of women wish to have bigger breasts, but there are also some who want it smaller. Fortunately, there is a solution to overly large breasts. Here at our Minneapolis plastic surgery practice, Dr. Hoffman performs breast reduction to help patients achieve their desired breast size.

Do I need breast reduction?

You need breast reduction if:

  • you feel discomfort because of the weight of your breasts
  • the weight of your breasts leads to posture problems
  • your breasts are too big for your frame
  • you experience back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • your breasts do not have the same size
  • your areola and nipples point downward due to your breast size
  • your breasts prevent you from engaging in certain physical activities
  • you are self-conscious and unhappy with your breast size

Improvement in Quality of Life

A study in the August 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, showed that the satisfaction of patients with the appearance of their breasts increased after breast reduction surgery. Significant improvements were also noted in the following aspects: psychosocial well-being, sexual well-being, and physical well-being.

What are the benefits of breast reduction?

It makes you feel more comfortable. No more pain caused by large and heavy breasts. No more indentations in your shoulders caused by bra straps.

It reduces your limitations. If large and heavy breasts prevent you from engaging in sports and other physical activities because it feels awkward or causes pain, breast reduction will lessen your limitations. You can be more active after breast reduction.

It improves your appearance. Large breasts are not always good, especially if they are not in proportion to your height and weight. Through breast reduction, you will no longer feel self-conscious. You can wear whatever you want without getting unnecessary attention.

If you are bothered with your overly large breasts, consider breast reduction. Learn more about the procedure by requesting a consultation with Dr. Hoffman today. Set an appointment by calling 651-686-4548 or filling out this online contact form.
