Large Breasts Are No Joke

Thursday, December 29th, 2011 at 5:12 pm , Category: Breast Enhancement,Breast Reduction,Featured


At our practice in Los Angeles, breast reductions often result in feedback such as, “This is the best gift I’ve ever given myself. I just wish I hadn’t waited so long.”

The reason for their delight: Overly large breasts can cause extreme emotional and physical pain.

What concerns me is that so many people do not realize this. They seem to think it’s OK to make thoughtless comments about women with large breasts. For example: I was standing in line at the grocery store recently when I heard one man say to another, “Hey, check out the boobs on that girl.” The two men laughed, but I didn’t think it was funny, and I doubt the undeserving woman did either.

I have a good sense of humor, but hurtful comments about someone’s appearance don’t make me laugh. Women of all ages with overly large breasts can experience many problems, such as:

  • Painful grooves in their shoulder skin caused by bra straps digging into their flesh
  • Limited ability to participate in activities such as jogging and aerobics
  • Embarrassment and self-consciousness about their appearance
  • Migraines and neck pain caused by the weight of their breasts
  • Irritated, chafed skin beneath their breasts
  • Unwanted attention

So here’s a reminder: Please think before you make a joke about someone’s appearance. You may be wounding them more than you know.

I did this! My only regret is that I didn’t do it much sooner. Dr. Stevens is the best and my breast reduction and lift came out balanced and almost painless with minimal scarring.

Now on to the Tummy Tuck.
