Many women with overly large breasts seek out breast reduction surgery to achieve a more equal body proportion. Breast reduction surgery is considered a viable option for women who suffer from physical or emotional discomfort due to the size of their breasts.
Here are some of the most common questions asked by potential breast reduction patients.
When should breast reduction surgery be considered?
If you are experiencing neck or back pains due to the size of your breasts, it’s time to consider reduction surgery. Having breasts that are too large for your body type may also cause you to feel embarrassed about your appearance. Breast reduction surgery also corrects breast asymmetry, which occurs when one breast is significantly larger than the other.
What are my options for breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and usually takes between 2 and 4 hours to complete. There are several types of incisions that may be used, including the scarless breast reduction technique. Your surgeon will determine what technique will be best for you during the consultation process.
How long will it take for me to recover from breast reduction surgery?
Physical activity should be limited for about two weeks following a breast reduction. Patients may experience temporary side effects including soreness, swelling, and bruising. Your results will be noticeable immediately following surgery, and will continue to improve with time.
