Breast surgery is not limited to enlargement, as the breasts also be too large and cause discomfort for individuals. As this video explains, women who will have positive results from breast reduction are those who have pain or discomfort due to large breasts along with difficulty finding clothes and undergarments that fit properly. Men may also be candidates for breast reduction if they have a condition called gynecomastia in which mammary glands have developed abnormally in a male’s body.
Dr. Joseph Perlman, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston, states "breast reduction is probably the most rewarding operation I perform. Even though it's a trade-off due to the incisions, most of the scars fade nicely and sensation to the nipple returns to normal. My patients remark that they wished that they had not waited so long, to have the procedure done. The relief they get in their shoulders and neck from breast reduction, as well as the ability to exercise better, and find clothes that fit properly, makes the procedure worthwhile".
