Seattle Breast Reduction – Reducing Pain

Women who wish to reduce the size of their breasts often suffer from physical and emotional strain due to their larger breasts which is often misunderstood by people who do not themselves have larger breasts. Having large breasts that are out of proportion to the rest of their body can cause many issues, from chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain to difficulty breathing, exercising, sleeping, and issues finding clothing that fits and flatters them without causing them to look heavier than they actually are.

Dr. Chung has helped countless women alleviate the physical and emotional pain associated with larger breasts through breast reduction surgery. In a breast reduction procedure, Dr. Chung will remove excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue from the breasts and relocate the areola, which generally remains intact with its original nerve and blood supply, to a higher position so as to more naturally coincide with the new, lighter breasts. The remaining skin is then closed around the areola and the resulting breasts are smaller, lighter, and even firmer than before.

Many women who’ve undergone a breast reduction procedure find along with an alleviation of their pain symptoms, a renewed confidence in their bodies after the procedure.
