For most women, there is nothing more aesthetically appealing than having prominent and nicely shaped breasts. However, while most of the female population yearns to have their breasts enhanced, a few popular celebrities have sought out the exact opposite through breast reduction.
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that removes extra fat, tissues, and skin in the breasts. Although not as popular as breast augmentation, it can benefit women who wish to alleviate the discomfort from having large breasts while still maintaining a desirable figure.
“Insurance companies often cover the cost of breast reduction. For cases where insurance does not cover the procedure, breast reduction can be a very affordable out-of-pocket procedure because it is usually performed in the outpatient setting,” says one of our breast reduction specialists, Dr. Ergun Kocak.
Let’s look at five celebrities who chose a breast reduction as a way of maintaining their attractive figure:
1. Ariel Winter
Tired of dealing with unwanted attention at such a young age, Ariel Winter decided to undergo breast reduction in 2015. The Modern Family star had been ridiculed for having large breasts disproportionate to the rest of her body. Her breasts limited her roles and the clothes she could wear, which affected her health and confidence.
According to Winter, it was the best decision she had ever made and recommended the procedure for anyone who has struggled with large breasts.
2. Drew Barrymore
In 1992, The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates star underwent breast reduction for health reasons and more.
When asked during an interview, Barrymore said having back pains, unsolicited attention, and limited fashion choices were a few reasons she opted for a breast reduction.
Now, with newfound comfort and confidence, she loves her body and breasts even more.
3. Queen Latifah
In 2003, the rapper-turned-actress and host decided that breast reduction was the best option after losing 25 pounds. However, in an interview, she said that her large breasts still burdened her despite the significant weight loss.
After the surgery, she went from an F cup to a smaller DD cup size. Admittedly, she misses her old look, but Queen Latifah was just as relieved that her chest was significantly lighter.
4. Soleil Moon Frye
Soleil Moon Frye suffered from Gigantomastia, a rare condition distinguished by having abnormal breast growth. At the age of 15, standing at 5’ 1’’, she already had a 38 DD bust line.
Frye’s condition affected her not only physically but also socially and psychologically. As a result, she underwent a breast reduction in 1993 and became happier and more confident, stating that finally, she had become an average teenager.
5. Heidi Montag
The reality television star admitted that she had undergone too much plastic surgery. Her breast surgeries made the most significant impact on her life, saying her large breasts hindered her daily life and activities.
The pain became constant, that it also affected her moods. That is why she decided to have her breast implants removed, reducing her F cup breasts to a more manageable size C cup.
There you have it!
The five female celebrities who had breast reduction surgery. While their breasts continue to be a focal point of their overall appearance, they are now more comfortable and happier without the health issues and inconvenience their former, larger breasts entailed.
Like other cosmetic procedures, breast reduction can also significantly boost confidence while enabling you to live a healthier and everyday lifestyle. With the expert skills and guidance from a board-certified plastic surgeon, breast reduction can leave you with a considerably modest breast size that is both aesthetically pleasing and proportional to your body.
In the end, there is nothing wrong with women who want to reduce the size of their breasts. If anything, more manageable breast size may do wonders in improving a woman’s self-esteem while allowing her to perform better in her chosen craft.
