Many women experience a variety of medical problems resulting from the weight of large, sagging breasts. These may include upper and lower back pain, shoulder pain, skin irritation at the lower breast folds, and indents in the shoulders from bra straps. Just as important are the psychological effects of self-consciousness and limitations of certain physical activities due to breast size.
Breast Reduction Consultation
At the initial breast reduction consultation, goals and expectations of the breast reduction surgery will be discussed. The breast reduction procedure will be explained in detail and those factors which influence the breast reduction surgery such as your age, the size and shape of your breasts and the tone of the breast skin will be reviewed. Different techniques for performing the breast reduction procedure and the location of the incisions will be discussed. A mammogram may be recommended preoperatively depending upon your age and family or personal history of breast disease.
"Thank you for the new lease on life. I waited for a long time to have the work done and I could not be happier. Again and again thank you, thank you, thank you!!"
"I love the transformation. The surgery really makes me feel great about myself. Dr. Greenberg shows so much interest in his patients and gives them so much time. So often doctors just want to get you in and out. Not Dr. Greenberg. He never seems to be in a hurry to move on and he always treats you with respect."
