When women talk about breast surgery, they usually want to enhance the size of their breasts. You are on the other end of the spectrum. You think less is more. You feel like you have been carrying a heavy weight on your chest for too long. You want to be free of the burden of a large bust. You’re thinking about breast reduction surgery. Before you get serious, you have some questions about trimming down the size of your bust. Here at Dr. Usal Cosmetic Center, we are proud to offer breast reduction and encourage you to learn more about it.
Is Breast Reduction a Good Idea for You?
A breast reduction may be considered medically necessary for you if you are suffering from pain caused by the considerable size of your bust. The weight of your breasts can place a great deal of strain on your neck, shoulders, and back. It can affect your posture. You may even suffer from headaches that can be traced to the size of your bust. If visits to the chiropractor, physical therapy, and weight loss have not brought you relief, a breast reduction may be the best solution for you. You may choose this procedure for cosmetic purposes if you simply aren’t happy with the way you look with a large bust.
What Happens During Breast Reduction Surgery?
Before your procedure, your surgeon will evaluate your bust and discuss a size that is a good reduction for you. For the procedure, your surgeon will begin by creating openings in your breasts in order to go in and remove excess tissue and fat. Any excess skin can be trimmed away as well. When your breasts have been trimmed down to a smaller cup size, your surgeon will seal the openings.
How Long is the Recovery After a Breast Reduction?
After your breast reduction, you can expect a recovery similar to breast enhancement. You’ll need to limit your exercise while your breasts heal. You shouldn’t strain yourself by lifting heavy items. Watch your surgical sites and keep them clean. Listen to your body. When it tells you to take it easy, rest. You’ll notice the difference when you feel so much lighter. You’ll be able to stand up straight again. That weight will finally be removed from your chest.
