Overly large breasts can cause pain and interfere with your life. If this is true for you, then you may be interested in breast reduction plastic surgery.
Large and heavy breasts can cause a number of problems, including backache, neck ache and shoulder pain.
You are a candidate if:
• Large breasts are causing neck and back pain
• Large breasts interfere with sports and physical activity
• Breasts are asymmetrical (one breast is larger than the other).
• Bra straps cause bruising
After breast reduction surgery, most women feel better about their bodies and are more confident. They look better both in and out of clothes, and back, neck and shoulder pain is eliminated or reduced.
A breast lift surgery can be performed in combination with your breast reduction to reduce excess skin that can cause the breasts to sag.
By reducing the weight of your breasts and repositioning them to sit higher on the chest wall, you get a more proportional upper body shape.
The Reduction Procedure
A breast reduction procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia.
After the Surgery
Following a breast reduction surgery, you will need to rest and take it easy. You can’t lift heavy objects or exercise strenuously for several weeks after surgery. You will be wearing a special bra for some time and will be instructed when the appropriate time to remove your sutures will be.
