Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that removes tissue from the breast to reshape or reduce the size of the breasts. Women choose to undergo this type of surgery for a number of reasons. They may be suffering from back pain due to large breasts or desire the cosmetic effect of smaller breasts and areolas. Many women have large, heavy breasts that may limit their daily routines, such as difficulty running. Breast reduction surgery may help relieve pain or irritation caused by large breasts, including discomfort from bras or restrictive clothing, and ultimately helps women feel more comfortable in their own skin.

What to Expect After Breast Reduction Surgery

As with any surgery, there is a healing process that involves minor discomfort while the incisions heal. With an experienced and skilled cosmetic surgeon, the risk of soreness and possible scarring as a result of surgery significantly decreases. The following results are common after breast reduction surgery:

  • Minimal discomfort after surgery
  • A few weeks of recovery time
  • Minimal scarring
  • Greater ease of movement after recovery
  • Firmer, lighter breasts

Breast reduction surgery is beneficial for many women who have felt hampered or weighed down by large breasts. Improved ease of movement, as well as the cosmetic benefits of firmer, more symmetrical breasts, results in many women satisfied by this cosmetic procedure.
