Over the years in my plastic surgery practice, I have seen countless women with massively large breasts who are seeking breast reductions. There are the usual large cup sizes: the “D”, “DD”, “DDD”, “DDDD” and the even more mammoth “E”, “F”, “FF”, “G” and “GG”. You surely know that these women would benefit from a reduction in their breast size.
On occasion, I have even seen women who have gargantuan breasts with cup sizes up to “J”, “K”, “L” and “M”. They uniformly have the classic symptoms associated with enlarged breasts including the neck, back and shoulder pain, grooving of the shoulders, and major limitation of tolerable physical activities. Many have rashes, areas of skin breakdown, require greater effort in breathing and can’t sleep lying down in bed and instead sleep in recliners.
Unbelievable as it may seem and having never seen this in my office, while surfing online, I came across an actual photo of a “T” cup.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19
In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.
We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.
For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.
In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.
We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
