When most people think about cosmetic surgery for the breasts, they think about augmenting their size. However, there are many women out there who are interested in doing just the opposite. There are a number of women who are looking to have breast reduction surgery. These women are looking at breast reduction to help alleviate pain, protect their back, improve their posture, and give their body a more proportional shape.
Women who have gone through breast reduction have commented that they have fewer bra strap rashes. Many of these women feel better when they wear fitted clothing. They feel more willing to try different types of swimsuits and blouses. They feel less pain when they exercise and have a reduction of neck, shoulder, and back pain.
While in the vast majority of cases when talking about breast reduction surgery we are talking about women having the procedure, there are men who also come in for breast reduction. Some men have a hormonal imbalance that causes their body to produce fat around their breasts.
Breast reduction surgery is typically an outpatient procedure. This means that you can usually go home on the same day as the procedure. Do keep in mind that since breast reduction is surgical in nature, there is a recovery period involved. During this time, it’s crucial to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing.
In time, you’ll be able to get back to your daily activities and feel comfortable in your new and improved body. You’ll be able to enjoy your results for years to come as long as you don’t gain too much weight in the future.
