What to do with breasts.? (Photo)

Candidate for a BR?
- Women who have large, heavy breasts, which may be the cause of movement difficulties, back, shoulder and neck pain, poor posture, bra-strap indentations and chafing under the breasts will benefit from reduction.
- Women with excessive breast size, which may decrease a sense of attractiveness and self-confidence, are candidates.
- Women with large breasts that interfere with normal daily activities or with exercise will be more comfortable when reduced.
Reduction or lift?

Breast lift or breast reduction?
If you are happy with your current size (your photograph did not show up unfortunately) then consider breast lift to raise the position of your nipples and breasts. There will still be some droopiness but the improvement can be dramatic.
Meet with an ABPS board-certified plastic surgeon to be examined and review options. If you are over 40 we require a preoperative mammogram for safety.
Best wishes. Please watch the video above for more information.

Breast lift or reduction
I am unable to open the photograph. However, there are certain general factors to consider when trying to decide between a breast lift and a breast reduction. Both procedures would involve similar scars and would lift your breasts. The decision would depend on whether you feel that your breasts are too large for your body frame. That may include symptoms such as breast pain, back pain, neck pain, rashes under the breasts, and bra strap grooves in your shoulders. If this is the case, you may prefer a breast reduction. Good luck!
