Posted on August 11, 2008 | by

If you are unhappy with your large breasts, you may want to consider a breast reduction. According to a recent study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, women reported higher self-esteem and reduced lower back pain following surgery to reduce the size of their breasts. Over 150,000 women had breast reduction procedures in 2007.

According to Dr. Alan Gold, president of American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, “This study further demonstrates that the connection between the aesthetic results of plastic surgery and the emotional, social and physical quality of life of our patients cannot be underestimated.”
