Breast size is something we have talked about for some time now. For the most part, the message that comes across in many conversations is that small breasts are a frustrating problem. Many women seek breast augmentation as a way to bring their body into alignment with how they view themselves. But what happens when breast size goes in the other direction? Some women with breasts too large for their frame or preference are actually told to appreciate what they’ve got. Really??
We Hear Your Concern
As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Krummen has spent a fair amount of time with women who are unhappy with the expansive size of their breasts. She has listened to their concerns and taken them to heart. In our Cincinnati office, we don’t perceive breast reduction solely as a cosmetic procedure. The refinement of shape is only one aspect of this surgery – and a relatively small aspect at that.
If you are a woman with large breasts, you are likely a woman with heavy breasts. We understand the physical pain that results from the gravitational pull on thin bra straps. Even in light of the creation of bras with wider straps, large breasts are a lot to support. It’s just a matter of fact. Maybe wider straps can minimize the indentations that usually go hand-in-hand with breast size, but they may not do much for the forward pull on the upper back, neck, and head. And there’s more.
The concerns related to large breast size don’t stop with physical discomfort. Another concern faced by women we meet is the emotional impact of being on the receiving end of unwanted attention, of not being able to find clothing that fits on top and around the midsection, of having difficulty exercising without uncomfortable pulling or pinching or constriction.
Breast Reduction in Cincinnati
We get it. Breast size is a matter of physical and emotional well-being. As such, breast reduction is not just a cosmetic surgery. Women who undergo this body-contouring procedure are able to feel more at home in their own body, and that is something to smile about.
