Women who have extremely large breasts often experience physical problems caused by the strain of carrying so much excess weight. Symptoms range from neck and back pain, headaches, and skin irritation to breathing problems and musculoskeletal deformities. Even wide, cushioned bra straps can leave painful indentations on the shoulders of women with large, heavy breasts. In addition to causing physical discomfort, excessively large breasts can also make a woman feel ashamed and self-conscious.
Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for women who are experiencing physical and mental distress as a result of extremely large breasts.
A breast reduction surgery removes glandular tissue, fat, and skin from the breasts, resulting in smaller, lighter, firmer, and better proportioned breasts. Breast reduction surgery can also reduce the circumference of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal of breast reduction surgery is to give a woman not only smaller, but more shapely breasts that are in proportion with her body.
Good Candidates for Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery is customarily performed for the physical relief of symptoms like back and neck pain. Many women who choose to undergo breast reduction surgery at our practice are plagued by large or sagging breasts to the point that their breasts restrict their daily activities, causing them constant physical pain and discomfort.
Good candidates for breast reduction include women who are mature enough to completely understand the reduction procedure and who have realistic expectations for the final outcome. Breast reduction surgery is not recommended for women who intend to breastfeed.
What Should I Know About the Safety of Breast Reduction?
Each year, thousands of women undergo breast reduction without experiencing complications. However, it is important for you to be informed of both the risks and benefits of breast reduction. Prior to your surgery, Dr. Ghaderi will discuss the details of the procedure with you and answer any questions you may have.
What Results Should I Expect?
Without the excessive weight of large breasts, you may find that you enjoy life more. Your body will be more proportioned, clothes will fit better, and you will have greater freedom to enjoy physical activities. Your incision lines will fade over time and can be easily concealed with clothing.
Breast reduction typically makes a dramatic change in your body image. An overwhelming majority of women feel very pleased with the results of surgery. In fact, of all the procedures that plastic surgeons perform, breast reduction ranks among the highest in patient satisfaction.
Breast reduction can also be combined with body contouring or facial plastic surgery options for enhanced results. During your consultation, Dr. Ghaderi will discuss your goals with you and develop a customized treatment plan to fit your needs.
