Large Breasts


The size of a woman’s breasts can vary due to a number of factors, and unfortunately, sizes do not always end up in direct proportion with the rest of the body. This can lead to a variety of issues, including social ostracization and even physical pain. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with the large breasts nature gave you. Illuminate Plastic Surgery can help shape your breasts to the proportions that are right for you.

The Problem with Large Breasts

While it is commonly thought that most women covet larger breasts, as those who struggle with very large or out of proportion breasts to the rest of their frame know, they can create a great deal of difficulty. Some women find their large breasts overly noticeable, which can create tremendous social anxiety. As importantly, a large bust can bring with it some serious physical issues, including serious back pain, breathing problems, posture problems, and even skeletal deformities.

Large Breast Treatment Options

At Illuminate Plastic Surgery, we have very successful treatment options for addressing your concerns, including:

Breast Reduction – In this procedure, Dr. Boudreault simply removes the excess breast tissue while you are under general anesthesia at our onsite surgery center. He will remove as much fat and glandular tissue as is required to achieve the desired size and shape. He will then tighten the skin around the breast area to leave you with the proportionate breasts you have been seeking.

Breast Lift – If you are not unhappy with the size of the breasts but are concerned with how that size causes them to sag, we can perform a mastopexy, or breast lift. In this procedure, Dr. B makes a small incision in the breast, removes excess skin, reshapes the breast and repositions the nipple to give you higher breasts with less sagging.

Large Breast Reduction Results

You will see beautiful results with either a breast reduction or a breast lift. Your breasts will look just as you have always wanted them to and you will feel great. If you have been considering a breast reduction due to physical issues, do not be surprised to find that your back pain or breathing problems go away or decline dramatically almost immediately. We have had many happy patients in Silicon Valley who have been very satisfied with both of these procedures.
