Is Breast Reduction Surgery Right for You?

Breast Reduction While most women dream of achieving fuller and perkier breasts, a small percentage want to achieve the opposite. Breast reduction, medically known as reduction mammoplasty, is an invasive cosmetic procedure that can remove excess fat and tissue from the breast while maintaining symmetry and natural nipple placement. It also entails a breast lift as an added bonus. Learn more about this procedure to decide if it is a good option for your needs. 

What is Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction works by removing excessive amounts of fat, skin, and tissue from the breasts which results in a smaller cup size and more lifted look. This procedure is ideal for women who struggle with very large breasts and who have drooping, sagging and loose skin. Breast reduction is most often used to eliminate painful effects caused by large breasts such as body aches and pain, poor posture and limited mobility. Excessively large breasts can also make it challenging to find properly fitting clothing and undergarments and contribute to poor self-image. Many women struggling with this issue find it difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle because exercising can be painful and result in rashes and irritation around the breasts. 

What Are the Benefits?

Getting a breast reduction can eliminate chronic pain caused by large breasts and improve your mobility, which means the ability to work towards a healthier lifestyle for you. It can also create a more suitable silhouette based on your body type and contribute to improved self-image. After a breast reduction, you can expect more perky and youthful looking breasts as well. 

Choosing to get a breast reduction may be the best decision you make for your happiness and well being. Get in touch today to learn more about this low-risk procedure and determine if it is the right option for you!
