Beverly Hills area breast reduction surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens has noticed that smaller breast size is a popular choice among celebrities and non-celebrities alike.

Marina Del Rey, California (November 2009) – Bigger is better? Actually, there might be a new trend brewing: “smaller is superior.” Board-certified Beverly Hills area breast reduction surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens of Marina Plastic Surgery has noticed that smaller breast size has become a popular choice for women both in the Hollywood spotlight, as well as in the mainstream.

Breast reduction surgery has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates compared to other cosmetic surgery procedures. By being relieved of the physical burden and associated complications caused by their overly large breasts, women can gain a whole new sense of freedom.

One of the most common reasons women consider breast reduction in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles is to gain relief from chronic physical discomfort. Celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Queen Latifah, and Kelly Osborn have openly discussed having or planning to have this life changing procedure to enhance their quality of life. Even some celebrities like Victoria Beckham who have had breast augmentation are exchanging their larger implants for smaller ones. Overly large breasts are commonly associated with neck, shoulder, and back pain, poor posture, headaches, and indentations in the shoulders from bra straps, as well as rashes and chafing.

Dr. Grant Stevens, an innovative breast reduction surgeon near Beverly Hills, California, points out, “In addition to relief from physical problems, women who visit us for breast reduction want their lives back.” He offers laser-assisted breast reduction to reduce surgery times, achieve precise results, and enhance recovery. “Having to endure unwanted attention on a daily basis can significantly impair a woman’s self-image and self-confidence. Once they’ve undergone breast reduction, many women feel emotionally liberated.”

The physical burden from large, heavy breasts can spill over into lifestyle limitations as well. Before their breast reduction surgery women often find it too uncomfortable to participate in many high-impact activities, which can cause pain in everything from jogging to horseback riding and dancing. Even wearing multiple sports bras is usually not enough to make these activities enjoyable for some women.

Breast reduction opens up clothing options for many women that were previously limited for practical, as well as emotional reasons. Celebrity or not, extremely large breasts make it difficult to wear anything that is strapless, backless, or halter style. “Once we reduce the size of a woman’s breasts and restore a youthful, perky breast appearance, her clothing options are no longer limited and she usually feels confident enough to put away those loose, bulky tops,” says Dr. Stevens. “As a surgeon, it gives me great satisfaction to witness the physical and psychological improvements that consistently arise from this life-changing procedure.”
