Overly large and pendulous breasts can cause neck, shoulder, and back pain as well as skin rashes and chafing. Unusually large breasts can also make a woman feel self-conscious, cause difficulty in finding clothes that fit well, and may make exercising difficult. Dr. Mahlon Kerr at Synergy Plastic Surgery is a skilled breast surgeon in Austin who have helped many women improve their quality of life through breast reduction. Dr. Kerr uses the latest, proven surgical techniques for breast reduction.
The ideal candidate for breast reduction is at or near their ideal weight and does not plan on future pregnancies. A breast reduction is designed to reduce breast size, improve physical discomfort, enhance body image and self-confidence. Many Austin patients choose to have a breast lift in addition to breast reduction. Some patients choose a tummy tuck or other procedure for a complete "Mommy Makeover".
