Welcome to the New Blog Page for Breast Reduction

Dr. Delgado welcomes his patients, prospective patients or anyone searching for knowledge, to his new blog site for breast reduction. The site is designed to bring much wanted information and updates on a procedure that has become more and more in demand in recent years.

Reduction mammoplasty or more commonly known as breast reduction surgery is one of the most rewarding surgeries for women in that it can bring immediate relief to a condition that many women have suffered with for years. One of the most common comments that women make after their surgery is, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”

The Unwanted Effects of Large Breasts

According to the American Society of Plastic surgeons, “The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead an active life. The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large pendulous breasts is as important an issue to many women as the physical discomfort and pain.” Dr. Delgado states that this is true for his San Francisco Bay Area patients.

When young women develop large breasts at a young age it can have devastating results. They are attracting unwanted attention from the opposite sex at a time in their life when they are most self conscious and this  can lead to emotional problems.

Insurance May Cover Breast Reduction Surgery

The impact on women can be so great physically that many insurance companies will cover the breast reduction procedure costs if their policy holder meets certain criteria. Unfortunately, this is not the case for men seeking male breast reduction, rarely will insurance cover their surgery for gynecomastia.

Schedule A Consultation

The future blogs on this site will address many issues and concerns that women have about breast reduction , but if you are looking for answers to questions you may have now, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Delgado either by calling the office or sending an email.
