Many women in America want to improve their bust. For those who live with macromastia (a condition classified by having excessively large breasts), however, the exact opposite is true.
An excessively large bust can lead to both extreme physical discomfort (for instance, back pain) as well as mental health problems such as emotional distress. Reasons like this should make it no surprise that a great many women would actually want to reduce their breast size.
At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group we know how important it is to love your body, which is why today we’re telling you everything you need to know about breast reduction surgery.
How Does Breast Reduction Surgery Work?
Breast Reduction Surgery is a type of surgery in which the surgeon removes excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin to make the size of a breast more manageable, and also better shaped. This is done by making an incision on the breast, repositioning the nipple, and then removing, lifting and shaping underlying tissue until the desired result is reached.
Sometimes a breast reduction procedure is used in conjunction with liposuction. The procedure generally takes about 2-5 hours — and many women don’t even need to spend the night in the hospital afterward.
What Are The Benefits Of Breast Reduction?
There are two major kinds of benefits that patients can derive from breast reduction. The first is the alleviation of physical and mental symptoms of macromastia, such as back pain, inability to perform some common tasks, mental distress, and more severe mental health and self-esteem problems. The second class of benefit is aesthetic, and involves the alleviation of problems like wardrobe difficulties and social stigma.
Is Breast Reduction Surgery Safe?
As with many forms of surgeries, there is a possibility for side effects (clotting, bleeding, pain). We utilize cutting edge methods and provide comprehensive aftercare to help patients avoid infection and unwanted scarring.
We always let our patients know that breast reduction surgeries can in some cases lead to changed breast sensitivity, inability to breastfeed, firming of the breasts, or fluid accumulation.
