Breast reduction has grown rapidly in popularity and now has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of any procedure.
DETROIT, MI, March 27, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Reduction mammoplasty, more commonly referred to as breast reduction, is a procedure designed to reduce the size of the breasts. During a breast reduction, the surgeon cuts a circle around the areola and removes tissue and fat from within the breasts.
Women who undergo breast reduction are typically suffering from one or more of the side effects that come with having excessively large breasts. Women with large breasts often experience pain in their neck, back, shoulders, and more. Women with large breasts can also develop rashes and skin irritations along with bra strap grooving. These side effects can lead to migraines, poor posture, and even herniated discs in the spine.
In addition to the physical side effects, women with large breasts also experience significant physiological effects. It can lead to depression, low self-esteem, and can prevent women from properly expressing themselves. This is in part because women with excessively large breasts often cannot fit in clothing they like.
Breast reduction pre-operative experience
Your preoperative experience will begin with a candidacy exam, in which your reduction mammoplasty surgeon will analyze your overall health, examine your symptoms, and possibly perform breast tests such as a mammogram.
During this exam, the surgeon will also create a plan of action including what tissue needs to be removed, and in what amount, in order to achieve your goals.
How the surgery works
A breast reduction surgery begins with the administration of general anesthesia. Once you are fully sedated, your surgeon will open your breasts by creating a circular incision around your areola (the dark circle around the nipple).
The surgeon will remove the necessary amount of fat, remove breast tissue, and glandular tissue in order to create breasts that the patient will be happy with. In cases where a lot of tissue needs to be removed, the surgeon will have to reposition the nipple in order to create natural and youthful looking results.
Breast reduction healing and recovery
When your breast reduction surgery is completed, your surgeon will wrap your breasts with gauze bandages and provide you with a recovery support bra. You may also have drains placed to ensure your breasts do not swell. It will typically take a few weeks before you can wear a traditional bra, and possibly a week before you can begin wearing a soft bra.
After surgery, you will head home for significant rest and recovery. You won’t be able to play sports or engage in an exercise in the weeks following surgery as this can increase your likelihood for complications.
Why it’s growing in popularity
The outcomes following the operation are very positive for most patients. In fact, breast reduction has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of any plastic surgery. This surgery produces both the physical and emotional advantages of lighter breasts.
Breast Reduction Patients should be conscious that most of their clothes may no longer fit. You will likely have to shop for new outfits to properly fit your new breasts. It may also take some time for you to get used to your new look as well.
Breasts are a very important part of a woman’s beauty and overall appearance. Breasts that are too large can greatly affect a woman’s physiological health and this becomes more and more important in modern society.
