QUESTION

Non Surgical Breast Reduction techniques

Is there a way to make breasts a couple of sizes smaller without surgery, or is surgery the only way to go?

ANSWER

Breast reduction options

Thanks for your question - There is currently no reliable non-surgical method of breast reduction. The other surgeons have correctly mentioned that liposuction in some patients, may be an alternative to traditional excisional breast reductions - but make no mistake - liposuction is still considered surgery! If the symptoms from large breasts are really bothering you but after a discussion with your plastic surgeon you're not ready to commit to surgery you can try some of the following: Weight loss - this can improve the heaviness of the breasts More supportive undergarments - the right bra can make a difference in back pain and shoulder grooving associated with large breasts. Physical therapy - physical therapy can help with neck and back pain. Good luck!
