Large Breasts: Understanding, Causes, and Treatment Options

Deemesh Oudit - Manchester Plastic Surgery

1. What are Large Breasts?

Large breasts, medically known as macromastia, refer to a condition where a woman’s breasts are disproportionately large compared to her body frame. This can lead to both physical discomfort and emotional distress. Women with large breasts may experience a range of symptoms including back, neck, and shoulder pain, skin irritation beneath the breast crease, and indentations from bra straps due to the weight of the breasts.

2. What Causes Large Breasts?

The development of overly large breasts can be attributed to several factors, often a combination of genetics, hormonal changes, and body weight. Genetics play a pivotal role in determining breast size and can predispose some women to larger breast tissue development. Hormonal fluctuations, particularly during puberty, pregnancy, or menopause, can also cause breast size to increase significantly. Additionally, weight gain can contribute to the size of the breasts, as they are composed largely of fatty tissue.

3. How to Treat Large Breasts?

For individuals experiencing physical discomfort or self-consciousness due to large breasts, Dr. Deemesh Oudit offers a specialized surgical approach to alleviate these concerns and enhance quality of life. Our clinic focuses on the following surgical treatment, tailored to each patient’s unique needs:

Surgical Treatment:

  • Breast Reduction Surgery (Reduction Mammoplasty): This is a key treatment for large breasts offered by Dr. Oudit. The procedure involves the precise removal of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin, resulting in a breast size that is more proportionate to the patient’s body. This surgery not only aims to alleviate discomfort associated with large breasts, such as back and neck pain, but also enhances the ability to engage in physical activities. Patients often experience a significant improvement in self-esteem and body image following this procedure.

Breast reduction surgery, performed by a highly skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Oudit, ensures that each patient receives care that is both compassionate and customized to their individual physical and aesthetic needs.

When considering breast reduction surgery, it is essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Deemesh Oudit, who has extensive experience in breast surgery. During the consultation, the surgeon will evaluate your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and discuss your desired outcomes.

It’s important to have realistic expectations and understand the potential risks and recovery process associated with the surgery. The procedure typically involves incisions on the breasts, and while surgical techniques aim to minimize scarring, some scars will remain. Recovery time varies, but most patients can return to normal activities within a few weeks, with full healing taking several months.

Breast reduction surgery has a high satisfaction rate, with many patients reporting relief from the physical and emotional burdens of large breasts. It is often considered a reconstructive procedure and may be covered by health insurance if deemed medically necessary.

Large breasts can cause significant physical discomfort and emotional concerns, but there are effective treatments available. From supportive garments and lifestyle changes to surgical intervention, women do not have to continue suffering from the challenges associated with macromastia. If you’re in Manchester and seeking relief, consider reaching out to a plastic surgery specialist like Dr. Deemesh Oudit to explore your options and embark on a journey towards comfort and confidence.

Mr Oudit performed my arm surgery in June 2023. I initially chose Mr Oudit based on his credentials and reviews. After meeting Mr Oudit I was immediately put at ease and had full confidence in his capabilities. I was not wrong. I am now 3 months post surgery and I am extremely happy with the results already. Full healing of the scars may take up to 12 months and as the healing process progresses the results will continue to improve. Mr Oudit was completely honest about what the surgery entailed and what the potential risks, as with any surgery, could be. He talked me though the entire process and explained exactly what to expect from the surgery. I am so pleased with the results from the surgery that I have booked another procedure for the new year.

I recently had a procedure undertaken by Mr Oudit at the BMI Beaumont hospital. Mr Oudit is very personable and made me feel at ease at all appointments before surgery and throughout the treatment under local anesthetic. I would highly recommend.
