Heavy breast symptom. Almost all breast reductions are done for symptoms caused by heavy large breasts: upper back and neck pain, shoulder grooving from the bra straps, and repeated fungal infections in the folds under the breasts. This is generally not a cosmetic procedure, because of the scarring it leaves. Sometimes, it is covered by medical insurance.
Symptoms. An “ideal” patient for breast reduction surgery is one who presents with relatively large breasts in proportion to the remainder of her torso. These patients often present with neck, back, shoulder discomfort, bra strap grooving, postural changes, and occasionally with rashes/infections. This operation tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform.
