Many women with breasts that are overly large will tell you they can be a pain to deal with on a daily basis. In fact, the pain can be in the neck as well as the back and shoulders because of the size and weight of the breasts. The daily issues associated with having larger breasts can lead some women to undergo breast reduction surgery. If you are looking for a solution to the discomfort and clothing problems that often occur because of larger breasts, keep reading to discover some of the benefits of breast reduction surgery. Our examination of breast reduction surgery starts with some of the benefits provided by the procedure:


Breast Reduction – How is it Performed?

The surgery known as breast reduction is when a surgeon removes fat, skin, and tissue from the breasts to decrease their size and give them a more youthful and rejuvenated look. In addition, the surgery is performed in order to relieve or eliminate any discomfort or constant pain that can be felt in areas of the body such as the neck, shoulders, and back.

There are multiple methods available to surgeons for breast reduction surgery. One of the most popular methods is the anchor pattern technique where the doctor creates horizontal incisions under the breast. The incisions run in a vertical pattern, and they go up to, and around, the nipple in order to create an anchor pattern.

Another popular breast reduction technique is the short scar method which is also known as a vertical incision technique. This is an ideal option for patients who do not require an excess amount of tissue removal from the breasts. The surgeon extends the incisions around the areola, as well as vertically downwards to the crease of the breast, in order to create a pattern that is normally described as looking like a lollipop.

Breast Reduction – How it Changes Your Life

Besides reducing the size of the breasts, the procedure can also provide an improvement in your daily life. A good number of patients have reported being able to stand straighter thanks to the elimination of back and neck pain and having smaller breasts that do not weigh as much as in the past. The difference in the feeling made by having smaller breasts can be felt immediately.

There are some physical activities that can be easier to perform including playing sports and cardio activities such as running and jumping. You will also find it easier to wear certain sizes or types of clothing that were hard to wear in the past. The expanded choice of clothing can revitalize the wardrobe and benefit your self-image.

A breast reduction surgery can also result in a good amount of patient satisfaction as it can improve both the aesthetic appearance of the breasts, make the patient feel less self-conscious about the size and look of their breasts, and make daily life easier to handle thanks to the elimination of pain and discomfort associated with larger breasts.

Breast Reduction Surgery – Who Should Have the Procedure?

If you have oversized breasts and they are bothering you, breast augmentation might be an ideal choice for you to relieve any discomfort you are experiencing thanks to overly large breasts.

You should also be finished with breastfeeding children as the procedure can impact the ability to breastfeed. The choice of technique by the surgeon can disrupt the performance of the milk ducts but it is not guaranteed that the ability to breastfeed will be impacted. However, it is a concern to keep in mind and to discuss with your surgeon during a consultation appointment.

If you have breasts that are overly large, you are likely an ideal candidate for the anchor pattern technique as it is able to remove a larger amount of excess breast tissue and skin. If you have breasts that are more moderate in size but still cause you pain and discomfort, you might be an ideal candidate for the vertical incision technique since you will likely require less removal of fat and breast tissue.

Breast Reduction Surgery – How to Get Started

The first step in the breast reduction surgery process is scheduling a consultation appointment with a plastic surgeon who is both board-certified and properly trained and experienced in performing multiple breast reduction techniques.

The consultation appointment is your opportunity to ask any questions you have about the surgery and the various techniques performed by the surgeon. The doctor will also examine you to make sure you are healthy enough for surgery as well as an ideal candidate for breast reduction.

Some of the questions you might want to ask concern the type of incision that will be used, the amount of breast reduction that can be accomplished, and if the sensation of the nipples will be impacted. You can also ask to see “before and after” photos of actual patients treated by the surgeon in the past in order to get a better idea about the type of results provided by the doctor.
