The medical term for large breasts is macromastia, and when large breasts cause pain and other physical problems the condition is called symptomatic macromastia. Heavy breasts can cause disturbances in multiple body systems. Furthermore, the impact of macromastia can contribute to obesity by reducing a woman’s exercise capacity. The symptoms of macromastia can include chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain; chest wall pain; headaches; poor posture; shoulder grooving; numbness and tingling of the hands; shortness of breath, sleep disturbances, rashes under and between the breasts and in the bra strap grooves, and low exercise tolerance.
Dr Sadove is known internationally for his experience with Breast Liposuction. This is often an excellent option for a woman seeking relief of her breast size and weight and not looking for ideal breast shape. The scars are only a few millimeters in size and the recovery is dramatically fast. The patient who does not want scars on her breast is often interested in this technique.
