Why Breast Reduction Surgery Has Such a High Satisfaction Rate

Women (and men) who experience discomfort, pain, or embarrassment caused by large breasts have a safe, satisfying option: breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty.

Breast reduction surgery not only offers a low-risk solution for people with uncomfortably large breasts, but it provides an exceptionally high patient satisfaction rate.

In fact, studies have found that as many as 95% of patients who undergo breast reduction surgery are so satisfied with the outcome of their surgery that they’d do it again.

Why does breast reduction surgery make people, including our patients, so happy? Dr. Craig Foster, a highly experienced plastic surgeon on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, offers the following reasons.

Reason #1: Less physical discomfort

Having overly large breasts (a condition known as macromastia) can cause physical strain on your back, neck, shoulders, and chest. It can stress your muscles, interfere with good posture, and lead to chronic pain.

Having large breasts can also lead to “bra strap compression,” where the weight of your breasts causes bra straps to dig into your shoulders and cause pain and even nerve damage in your shoulders.

Because of the positive impact that breast reduction surgery can have on upper body health and comfort, it’s among the most commonly performed breast plastic surgery procedures.

Reason #2: Better freedom of movement

People with overly large breasts often find that their breasts interfere with physical activity and sports. Having smaller breasts can make running, cycling, swimming, playing tennis, and other activities more enjoyable and less uncomfortable, paving the way for improved fitness levels and better overall health.

Reason #3: Less emotional stress

If you’ve ever been taunted for the size of your breasts, you know the emotional damage it can inflict. Many patients who have breast reduction surgery do so after experiencing years of catcalls, bullying, and undesired sexual attention.

Reducing the size of your breasts can offer welcome relief from harassment and an opportunity to begin healing from emotional trauma.

Reason #4: Improved appearance

Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin from your breasts, reducing your breasts to a size that appears in better proportion to the rest of your body. After Dr. Foster removes excess breast tissue, he may also lift and shape your breasts to ensure the most attractive outcome. His patients report dramatic improvement in the look and feel of their breasts.

People who have their breast size reduced find that clothes fit better. As a result, they feel younger and more attractive and their self-confidence and self-esteem increase.

Reason #5: Safe, effective procedures

When choosing the type of breast reduction procedure to perform, Dr. Foster considers your breast size, overall health, and desired outcome, as well as your preferences.

He typically performs breast reduction at his New York City surgical center. Most surgeries take only a few hours and do not require an overnight stay.

Although all medical procedures carry some risk, breast reduction surgery is a very safe procedure that results in only minimal postsurgical scarring.

Reason #6: A surgeon you can trust

With his extensive surgical experience, Dr. Foster provides patients with attractive, natural-looking results. His patients count on him and his staff to deliver high-quality care in a supportive, caring atmosphere.
