Dr. Teitelbaum is thrilled to perform breast reduction surgery because patients for this procedure are among the happiest in all of plastic surgery. This is because breast reduction is the best, most perfect marriage of a "medically necessary" procedure with an aesthetic procedure.
Many women have significant symptoms from their large breasts: neck and back pain, breast pain, rashes under their breasts, grooving and pain from their bra strap, and much more. Large breasts restrict many women from exercising, jogging, or playing certain sports. They feel their breasts are stared at; they face difficulty finding nice fitting clothing; and find that they look heavier and more short-waisted than they actually are. For women who have suffered with large breasts for many years, the decision to have a breast reduction often comes easy and brings with it a sense of emotional relief. But for the many teenage girls who consider breast reduction, trying to decide whether to have this procedure can be more emotionally charged.
