Breast Reduction Surgery, also known as Reduction Mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure done to reduce the size and improve the shape of exponentially large breasts, in turn reducing the physical discomfort caused by them.
Having breasts that are disproportionately large can lead to various medical issues such as back and neck pain, skin irritation, skeletal deformities and even respiratory problems. Breast Reduction Surgery can help alleviate these issues by removing fat, glandular tissues and skin, making the breasts smaller, lighter and firmer. It also helps you achieve breasts that are proportionate to the rest of the body.
Breast Reduction Surgery has its fair share of benefits. They include:
• Restricted movement and physical activity
• Back and neck pain
• Shoulder strain
• Poor posture
• Skin irritation and infection
• Shortness of breath
• Difficulty fitting into clothing
The procedure in itself is a fairly simple and straightforward procedure, lasting anywhere from 3 to 5 hours. To begin, the excess breast skin and tissues are removed, through small incisions to the area, after which the skin is stitched up and the areola and nipples are repositioned as well. It is advisable to consult a plastic surgeon beforehand to wholly understand the treatment and aftercare.
