Select Page

Breast reduction is becoming increasingly popular for both genders. Consider a recent article for the Independent titled “How smaller boobs – or moobs – could change your life.”

Sinead Moriarty of the Independent writes, “Breast reduction is becoming one of the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures in Ireland, and it’s not just women who are getting it done. Male breast reduction is on the increase here too. Male breasts – ‘Moobs’ – can cause teenage boys and men severe embarrassment and now increasing numbers are seeking help. Unlike breast augmentation, breast reduction is rarely carried out for cosmetic reasons. In fact, it is usually sought out by desperate people at the end of their tether. Just this week, Ariel Winter, the 17-year-old star of the hit US sitcom ‘Modern Family’, bravely revealed that she has undergone breast reduction surgery to take her bra size down from 32F to 34D. She explained that she was suffering severe neck and back pain as a result of her large breast size. ‘I really couldn’t stand up straight for a long period of time. It started to hurt so bad that I couldn’t take the pain. My neck was hurting so bad and I actually had some problems with my spine,’ she said. She firmly believes that having the surgery has made her feel better about herself and has benefited her overall health. Her honesty about the procedure is refreshing and should help lots of young girls who are suffering with the same problem to know that they are not alone and there is a solution. Being a teenager is awkward enough without having to deal with huge breasts that attract unwanted attention, restrict you from wearing fashionable clothes and often from playing sports. While Winter is on the young side to have had the surgery, girls are going to their doctors at a younger age now for advice and help. Until recently, most women seeking breast reduction in Ireland were waiting until their 40s and 50s, but that is changing.”

If you’re considering breast reduction surgery, you need a surgeon you can trust. Rex E. Moulton-Barrett, M.D. is internationally known and acknowledged. He is board certified with The American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and The American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
