Reduce Strain and Prevent Pain With Breast Reduction Surgery

Genetics will play a large role in determining the size and shape of an individual’s breasts. If the breasts are too large n proportion to the body there is little that diet and exercise can do to correct the problem. Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that aims to reduce the size of the breasts by removing excess fat and tissue. This procedure is also able to reshape and contour the breasts according to the patient’s wishes. 

Breast reduction surgery can be effective at improving the appearance of the breasts but it is more often used to reduce the physical strain that large breasts can cause. Disproportionately large breasts can lead to a variety of issues because the individual’s muscles are put under constant tension. Large breasts can lead to a shift in the patient’s centre of gravity and draw their upper body forward. This leads to added strain on the neck, shoulder, and back muscles and if left untreated could lead to chronic pain and headaches. Large breasts can also affect a woman’s ability to perform physically demanding activities or prevent them from participating in certain sports. 

The Procedure

It is always important that you consult with a medical professional before any procedure to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for surgery. Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and the normally takes between 2 and 5 hours to complete. During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision around the areola, down along the curve of the breast and in the crease of the breast. Any excess tissue and fat are then removed in order to reduce the size and weight of the breast. The excess skin is also removed to accommodate the breast’s size and shape. Patients should experience a sense of relief directly after the surgery as they are now free from the strain that their bodies were subjected to. 

Surgery Recovery

Patients will be incapable of performing a number of activities during the recovery period and it is advised that they rest at home for a week at the least. Too much physical activity can lead to injury or cause complications at the site of the surgery. There will be some discomfort and a fair amount of swelling in the first few weeks. Pain medication will be prescribed to mitigate any pain and your doctor might schedule follow-up appointments to remove the bandages and assess your recovery and results. Make sure you tell your doctor about any concerns you may have so that they can be addressed as soon as possible to put your mind at ease.
