Good Candidates for Breast Reduction

You may be a good candidate for breast reduction if you have breasts that are excessively large compared to your height and weight. Most insurance plans utilize the Schnur Scale to determine if you are a candidate to have insurance cover the procedure. This score can easily be found online or at your surgeon’s office. If your breasts make you feel self-conscious, limit your clothing options, lead to chronic skin irritation, and/or cause chronic headaches, neck, back, or shoulder pain, breast reduction may be a good option. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Brown is the best way to determine whether a breast reduction makes sense for you.

Benefits of a Breast Reduction

There are many benefits of breast reduction surgery. The most important benefit is its ability to alleviate pain and discomfort in various parts of your body, mainly the head and neck area. A breast reduction can also expand your clothing options and allow you to wear dresses and shirts that you may not have been able to in the past. It can also boost your confidence and help you look and feel your best.
