A Breast Reduction Surgery for Oversized and Disproportionate Breasts

Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure that reduces the size of a woman’s breasts in an effort to reduce the physical strain on the upper part of their body. Oversized breasts can have negative effects on a woman’s body because of the extra disproportionate weight being put on the upper body. Women with exceedingly large and pendulous breasts will constantly have bra indentations on their shoulders, leading to skin irritation. The increased weight can also cause a woman’s body to develop skeletal deformities, experience breathing problems, and suffer from constant back and neck pain.

Breast reduction surgery is a feasible solution for women who struggle with oversized breasts and the negative effects it can have on their body. This procedure is also a solution for teenagers who feel self-aware about their oversized breasts and want to avoid any future medical implications that could develop as a result of the extra weight being carried by the upper body.

The Procedure

Reduction mammoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia. The procedure is designed to remove excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue from the breasts to reshape and resize them into smaller and more proportionate breasts. The surgeon will also relocate the nipples once the breasts have been reshaped, which can reduce the size of large areolas. It also means that you cannot breastfeed anymore afterwards. In the end, this procedure will relieve the upper body from dealing with the excessive weight of large and pendulous breasts, leading to a healthier and more desirable outcome.

The Recovery

You will be required to wear a surgical bra for 6 weeks to 3 months after your surgery to allow your body to heal and your breasts to adapt to their new shape while the swelling and bruising heal. You can expect to feel some pain and discomfort during your recovery, especially when you move around or cough. Try to be still as much as possible during recovery. Your surgeon will prescribe some painkillers to deal with any discomfort. It is pivotal to use your prescribed medication, as other painkillers might alter blood coagulation.
