Breast Reduction Surgery Guide: Our Unique Approach

Breast Reduction Surgery: Some Characteristics

When we think about the ideal female body in today’s society, there are certain characteristics that come to mind. One of the biggest things that men typically associate with female attractiveness is a large breast size.  A lot of people consider women with large breasts as sexier than their smaller-cup sized brethren. This explains why there is such a large market for breast enhancement and/or enlargement surgeries. In some cases, however, women with very large breasts may find that they suffer actual health problems. In these cases, breast reduction surgery is a possible option.

Reasons For Breast Reduction

A large breast size can contribute to feelings of insecurity and self-consciousness.  It can also actually restrict physical activity, and can even result in serious physical health issues. These health issues are chronic back pain, shoulder pain and in some cases, even pinched nerves.

Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammaplasty is a procedure that is meant, in simple terms, to reduce breast size. In some cases,  a doctor performs breast reduction to reduce physical discomfort.  In other cases, a doctor can perform this to make the body and breasts more properly proportioned.

Things to Consider

Before you undergo surgery, there are certain things you need to consider if you get a breast reduction. If you are anticipating having a baby,  a doctor does not recommend breast reduction surgery. This procedure can skew milk production. This means that if you want to have children, it’s best to delay.  Likewise, if you are planning to lose a significant amount of weight,  you should wait until after your weight loss. Natural weight loss can sometimes decrease breast size on its own.

Breast Reduction Surgery: The Details

Breast reduction surgery involves undergoing general anesthesia.  A doctor administers general anesthesia and makes an incision around the areola, and down the breast. After the doctor and patient decide on the amount of removal of the breast tissue, the doctor removes it via liposuction. Afterwards, the doctor correctly positions the nipple and areola and closes the incisions.

Immediately following the surgery, your breasts will be bound in bandaging, and you may or may not need a tube for removing any excess fluid. The pain can be intense enough, particularly in the first week or so where you will have to take the medicine prescribed by your doctor. You will need to wear an elastic compression bra as well to ensure that your breasts are properly supported throughout the recovery process. Be sure to limit yourself to light activities, and avoid wearing underwire bras until your doctor says it is okay to do so.

Breast Reduction Surgery: Last Thoughts

As with any surgery, it is very important that you are in the best possible shape going into the procedure. Be sure to follow any and all directions your doctor gives you. You will almost certainly have to quit smoking beforehand, as well as ceasing taking any kind of medicine that could contribute to bleeding.

Some women are not ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery. If you have certain medical conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes, you may not be able to safely undergo the procedure.
