Most people are fairly familiar with breast augmentations, or boob jobs as many people call them. But breast reduction surgery is not as commonly known as a procedure. When the world seems to glorify large breasts some may wonder why anyone would want to get rid of theirs. However, candidates for this surgery know exactly the reasons.
Popular culture would have you believe that every woman wants to have very large breasts. But that simply isn’t true. While some women choose to enhance the size of their breasts others elect for another procedure commonly known as breast reduction surgery. Clinically this procedure is known as a reduction mammaplasty and is used to decrease the size of a woman’s breasts.
Women choose to get breast reductions for a number of reasons. Whatever your reasons may be, the most important thing you can do for yourself is to prepare. That means knowing what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.
Breast reduction surgery — also known as a mammaplasty — is a procedure that aims to alleviate the discomfort caused by disproportionately large breasts. This is done by removing excess skin, glandular, and fatty tissue from the breast area. As with any other surgical procedure, our patients often have a lot of questions and we're happy to oblige. After all, it's very important that you know exactly what you're getting into before you undergo a procedure such as this.
Your breasts are an intensely personal part of your body, yet they are also highly visible to the outside world. It's no surprise then that they can have a huge impact on your body image and self-esteem. If you simply feel like your breasts are too large or you're experiencing physical pain associated with heavy and sagging breasts, it may be time to consider having a breast reduction.
