Women have no control over how large their breasts naturally grow to be. Genetics account for the primary reason for why your bust size may be larger than average. However, you do have control over whether you live with large breasts or have them surgically reduced. You can decide if a breast reduction is right for you by learning how it is done and what benefits come with undergoing this popular procedure.
What is a Breast Reduction?
As its name implies, a breast reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of your breasts. It involves the removal of breast tissue and skin. It is sometimes referred to as a reduction mammoplasty. Breast reduction surgery can be used in conjunction with liposuction, depending on the situation.
The details of each breast reduction surgery vary from patient to patient. However, during a typical procedure, our surgeon may remove excess skin and/or tissue. During the recovery period, it is important for you to follow our team’s instructions in order to facilitate proper healing. You should also take all prescribed medications and follow up with our surgeon as recommended. Once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy the results of your procedure for years to come.
Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery
You may wonder what benefits come with breast reduction surgery. The primary benefit centers on improved appearance. You may notice right away that you look better and that your appearance is no longer compromised by a larger than average bust line.
Second, you may feel better and no longer experience pain in your shoulders, neck, and upper back. Large breasts put strain on these parts of your body and can contribute to headaches, back aches, and stiff necks.
Finally, you may notice that your clothing fits better. You may even be able to wear smaller sizes. This perk is useful if you want to wear apparel that is normally off limits to you because of your breast size.
