BREAST REDUCTION OVERVIEW
Breast Reduction (also known as Reduction Mammaplasty) is a procedure that removes excess fat, glandular tissue and skin to make your breasts smaller, firmer, and proportionate to your body. It helps to reduce the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
Women with large, heavy breasts may experience several health concerns related to this problem including back and neck pain, breast pain and rashes under the breast. The added weight of large breasts may exacerbate the symptoms for women with arthritis or spinal problems. Some women are bothered by the psychological embarrassment of large breasts, finding it uncomfortable to engage in physical activity or experiencing difficulty in finding clothes that fit.
In the long term, large breasts can lead to increased sagging (ptosis) and as a result of which a combination of large breasts and ptosis is present in many women. Women who are very self conscious of their large breasts, tend to develop a slouch in their posture, droop in their shoulders and chronic backache. Bra straps tend to dig into their shoulders causing deep indentation.
If you have any of these symptoms, breast reduction surgery may be right for you. It can make a dramatic change in your appearance and your outlook. It is recognized worldwide that women who have had breast reduction are some of the most satisfied and grateful patients. They find new enjoyment in sports, exercise, dance and even walking!
