Would I Benefit from Breast Reduction Surgery?
- Posted on: Jun 15 2018
Too often, we focus on breasts as the ultimate feminine feature when there are many other features that combine to create feminine beauty. Women focus on breasts when they feel they don’t quite measure up, but we often forget those women who have breasts that are too large and literally carry that burden with them.
Did you know that large breasts can actually cause back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and limit women from living the active lifestyle they would like? We are familiar with women being unable to run comfortably, play sports, or even find clothing that fits them.
If this sounds like you, keep reading to learn more about breast reduction surgery.
What is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is also referred to as reduction mammaplasty, and is the procedure in which breast tissue is removed and the remaining tissue is reshaped and moved higher to make a natural-looking silhouette.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Any woman who is in good health is a good candidate. Certain autoimmune diseases may prevent you from getting any kind of surgery, for example.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
Recovery time for this procedure can vary, depending on the exact procedure performed and each individual patient. Often women recover between two and six weeks, though you should consult your physician about your specific procedure’s average recovery times.
You may be advised to take some time off of work to recuperate, and keep in mind that you will need to care for stitches and other byproduct of the surgical procedure. Some surgeons also recommend that you wear a sports bra twenty-four hours a day for an extended period of time after your surgery.
Why Would I Want Breast Reduction Surgery?
Many women opt for this surgery due to constant pain that stems from the weight of carrying large breasts all day. Some women may also elect to have breast reduction surgery done because they simply feel they do not like the attention that large breasts can attract (through no fault of their own). After surgery, back pain from carrying large breasts is gone, and women find it easier to find clothing that fits them. Many women become more active without the burden of large breasts.
