Large, pendulous breasts can both look unappealing and detract from your physical health. Breast reduction in Bloomington or Peoria, Illinois from Dr. Jeffrey Poulter allows you to take action and enjoy increased breast comfort. Women with large breasts often experience neck and back pain, along with skin irritation from bra straps. In addition, large breasts can make a woman feel extremely self conscious and even cause her to withdraw from social settings. Greatly enlarged breasts can prevent women from participating in routine activities of daily living, as well as exercise that is necessary for weight management and overall health.
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, reduces the size and weight of large breasts while making them firmer and, if needed, shrinking the size of the areola (the darker skin around the nipple). The result for most women is dramatically increased comfort and confidence, along with a more contoured and proportionate breast appearance. Breast reduction surgery is very similar to a breast lift, but with more significant tissue removal.
