Plastic Surgeon Explains Benefits of Breast Reduction

Dr. Jose Rios, a plastic surgeon who specializes in breast reduction and breast augmentation in the Chicago area, says he is not surprised by recently published research that outlines numerous of breast reduction surgery.

Joliet, Illinois (April 2012) – Dr. Jose Rios of Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Associates, SC specializes in breast reduction and breast augmentation near Chicago. He says he is not at all surprised by a recently released study that shows breast reduction procedures create an extremely high level of patient satisfaction.

The study, which was published in the March issue of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, found that following breast reduction surgery, women report improvements in many areas, including headaches, breathing and sleeping difficulties and musculoskeletal pain.

Dr. Rios, a board-certified plastic surgeon, says he gets similar positive feedback from his Naperville, IL cosmetic surgery patients who have had breast reduction.

He also agrees with the study's findings that the procedure can have many psychological benefits, including reduced depression and anxiety and improved self-esteem.

"Breast reduction can be very liberating, both physically and emotionally, for women who have had to go through life making accommodations for their large breasts," Dr. Rios says. "Not only can big breasts be extremely uncomfortable, causing neck and back pain, but women often find it difficult to find clothing that fits correctly. And, the stares and comments that often go along with the condition are hard on a woman's self-esteem."

He said the procedure can also lead to a better quality of life because many women find it easier and more comfortable to exercise and participate in other physical activities following breast reduction surgery.

"It's also personally a very satisfying procedure for me, as a doctor, because of the many positive changes I see it bring to my patients' lives," Dr. Rios says.

"I encourage women who are suffering physically or emotionally because of overly larger breasts to seek the advice of a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience with breast reduction surgery to see if this procedure might be beneficial for them."

Dr. Rios performs a wide variety of plastic surgery procedures for Naperville, Joliet and Chicago-area residents. He specializes in breast enhancement and body contouring surgery, while his partner in practice, Dr. Paula Lapinski, is a dermatologist who specializes in skin cancer treatment and Mohs micrographic surgery.
