Many women born with a significantly large bust may feel that their breasts are a burden. Having large breasts can cause some women to attract unwanted attention from people, while others find that they are a source of embarrassment and insecurity. Patients may also struggle with physical pain due to the heavy weight of their breasts. Breast reduction surgery can provide you with the physical and emotional relief you seek by reducing the size and shape of your breasts to produce a more aesthetically pleasing chest.
What Is Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess breast tissue to create a smaller bust. During your procedure, an incision is made, and the underlying tissue and excess skin are removed. The areolas will also be reduced and moved to a higher position on the chest. Once the breasts have been reshaped to your desired size, the incisions are closed using surgical sutures. Many women choose to combine their breast reduction surgery with breast lift surgery to enhance their results with more youthful, lifted breasts.
Breast Reduction Can:
- Create more balanced proportions
- Reduce chronic pain caused by the weight of overly large breasts
- Improve your confidence
Balanced Body Proportions
Many women struggling with overly large breasts desire smaller and more manageable breasts that better align with the size of their body. Breast reduction surgery can provide women with the breasts they have always wanted by improving their body proportions with a more balanced figure.
Significantly large breasts can cause women to experience chronic pain in their back, neck, and shoulders. This can also impact a woman’s physical abilities as the extra weight on her chest can make her feel exhausted and uncomfortable. Breast reduction surgery can relieve women of this discomfort and improve their overall quality of life by removing excess breast tissue.
Patients with overly large breasts may be emotionally unhappy due feeling uncomfortable about the way they look or being unable to wear certain pieces of clothing without appearing too exposed or provocative. Breast reduction surgery can relieve patients of their emotional distress by enhancing their appearance and boosting their self-esteem.
