Many women think that they want to have larger breasts, whether they want to have a more impressive bust for themselves or for their partner. They don’t know what it’s like when that extra weight becomes a burden. If you have been blessed with larger breasts and they are making you miserable, you are not alone. That added weight on your chest can put a major strain on your back, shoulders and neck. It can affect your posture and make you feel like you are always dragging. To alleviate your back pain and other symptoms that are the result of excessively large breasts, consider a breast reduction.
How Can a Breast Reduction Help You?
If you have been living with breasts that are too large for your figure and they are out of proportion, our plastic surgeon can assist you with a breast reduction. Dr. Stephens will assess your breasts, talk about your symptoms and determine how much breast tissue should be removed in order to help you to find relief. In many cases, excess fat will be removed as well to allow you to have smaller breasts that are more balanced as compared to the rest of your body. You won’t have to drag around all of that extra weight anymore once our plastic surgeon has completed your procedure.
What Happens During a Breast Reduction Procedure?
During a typical procedure, our plastic surgeon will remove fat and extra tissue, sculpting the remaining tissue in the process to leave you with breasts that will be more comfortable for you to bear on a day to day basis. You will be sent to the recovery room. Once it is safe for you to go home, you can expect to wear a support bra. This will help to relieve any discomfort after your procedure.
Is a Breast Reduction Right for You?
A breast reduction is generally recommended if your breasts are so large that they are straining your body. Once you no longer intend to have any more children and your weight is under control, you will be a good candidate for a breast reduction procedure.
