Dr. Shermak has treated many Maryland breast reduction patients, relieving the endless stress associated with carrying uncomfortable, extra weight on the chest.
What is Breast Reduction?
Women who are large-breasted may experience back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, rashes and skin irritation, grooving of bra straps into the shoulders, numbness in the fingertips, and posture problems. Difficulty with performing everyday tasks such as childcare, physical exercise and recreational activities may also present a problem. A negative body image can take its toll emotionally as well. Our Baltimore breast reduction surgery helps lighten the breasts and improve on physical symptoms, with removal of excessive breast tissue and lifting of the nipple. The goal is to improve form and function. Incisions associated with breast reduction range from under the breast, to peri-areolar, to “lollipop,” to “anchor” shaped incisions, depending on presentation and patient tolerance for scarring. Breast reduction surgery may be combined with abdominoplasty or liposuction to rejuvenate and improve the overall contour of the torso.
