Who is a good candidate for breast reduction surgery?With women all over the country choosing to get breast implants to increase the size of their breasts, you may wonder why anyone would choose to size them down instead. If you are considering breast reduction surgery, ask yourself the following questions:
- Is it hard to find flattering clothing that suits your style preferences?
- Do you experience a lot of back or neck pain?
- Is it difficult to find bras in your size?
- Are your breasts stretching out your skin and creating stretch marks?
- Do your breasts feel out of proportion to the rest of your body?
- Is the size of your breasts causing them to sag underneath all the weight?
- Are you self-conscious about the size of your breasts?
- Does the size of your breasts make it difficult to run, dance, swim, or participate in other physical activities that you enjoy?
If you’ve answered yes to one of more of the questions above, you may want to consider breast reduction surgery. It can eliminate pain, help you feel more comfortable, and make every day activities easier.
What happens during the procedure?
If you choose to undergo breast reduction surgery, the procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. A small incision will be made, usually underneath the breast. The surgeon will take measures to keep scarring to a minimum. At Core Plastic Surgery, the procedure usually takes 2-2 ½ hours. Most patients only need pain medication for 2 or three days following the procedure. It usually takes about 6 weeks for patients to completely heal, but many patients can return to work 1-2 weeks after the surgery has been completed.
