Women who have breasts that are too large for their frame can experience a whole host of problems over time because of the strain that this puts on the body. On top of this, large breasts can negatively affect an individual’s self-esteem and limit their movement. In order to remedy these issues, many women choose to have breast reductions performed. Ignoring the problem can only lead to further complications as you age and it could make all the difference if you consult with a medical professional as soon as you start to experience any discomfort.
What Does the Surgery Entail?
Breast reductions are also referred to as reduction mammoplasty and it is a procedure that aims to reshape the breast and reduce the size by removing excess fat and tissue from the breasts. The skin is then tightened to fit the new breast size and any excess skin is removed. In some cases, the surgeon will perform liposuction on the breast to remove excess fat. This technique is mostly used when the change in cup size is not too large. If there is a considerable size reduction the surgeon will make an incision around the areola and on the breast to gain access to the breast tissue. Fat and tissue can then be removed and the breast is reshaped to fit the patient’s physique.
Why Choose Breast Reduction Surgery?
Many patients simply feel that their breasts are not proportionate to their body, which makes them self-conscious about their bodies and what they wear. They might even be limited in their choice of what they can dress in as they might experience difficulty finding clothing and bras that fit their frame. The physical strain caused by large breasts can lead to chronic upper body pain and can often cause patients to adopt a poor posture. The neck and shoulders bear a lot of the weight and individuals might constantly experience discomfort if left unaddressed. Oversized breasts can also limit an individual’s physical abilities and prevent them from taking part in certain activities comfortably.
