Breast reduction surgery can be performed with intent to eliminate conditions caused by excessive breast growth, such as; back and neck muscle strain, positional changes, headache, shoulder pain, grooves on the shoulders caused by bra straps, – Ulnar nerve paresthesia – chronic chest pain – problems about personal hygiene, – and inability to participate in sports activities. In some patients, breast size can be associated with obesity (overweight), and weight loss can be useful for them. Weight loss may not be effective on breast size; however, it enhances the tolerance of the patients to the planned surgical intervention, and may reduce the risk factors.
Excessively big breasts may lead to various problems such as hunched-back formation, fungal infections under the breasts, and discomfort in the shoulders, caused by bra straps. In patients over forty years of age, it is needed to perform a clinical breast examination and mammogram for detecting any possible malignant tumor.
