Can large uneven breasts cause scoliosis?

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

It is not uncommon for patients with scoliosis to have a more pronounced breast asymmetry. than average patients. Scoliosis however is not caused by large breasts. It is not beyond reason to think that the larger breast can affect the curvature more. The bottom line is that if you have symptoms from large breasts and want to be considered for a breast reduction, you should consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Aspen Technique as alternative to surgery

Breast Implant Revision

Member Response:

The Aspen technique has been effective in some patients with early contracture. Most of the time, contractures require capsulectomy. It is my practice to use a dermal matrix in the revision if the implant is already under the muscle In those patients who are subglandular, I change them to the submuscular pocket and offer the ADM as well.

Debating if I Should Do It or Not

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

Thanks for your question. Breast reduction approval is extremely frustrating. Each insurance company has different arbitrary criterion. As your plastic surgeon, my job is to evaluate you and based on your symptoms, correlate your physical exam to the problems you are having (neck pain, shoulder pain, etc.). An experienced surgeon can fairly accurately estimate the amount of breast tissue that can safely be removed without compromising blood flow to the nipple areolar complex. This information is submitted for preauthorization. Insurance carriers have customer service representatives that are instructed to tell the policy holders if a procedure is "covered". They don't publish what percentage are not approved. In our experience only about 20% get approved and these are normally extremely large breasts. It unfairly penalizes someone like you with breasts that are clearly disproportionately large for your frame which is a healthy height/weight. Best of Luck!

What’s included

Mommy Makeover

Member Response:

Sounds like your desires fit within the "mommy makeover" spectrum. Once you meet with your plastic surgeon you will have a better idea as to the specifics for each procedure as well as what your expectations should be. It is very important to choose an experienced surgeon. "Ideal weight" is hard to define. A BMI of 25 for example means that there are no increased risks postoperatively. As weight gets more and more above 25 the risk of complications increases. I personally don't offer the surgery to patients over a BMI of 30. Best of Luck!
