Nature is occasionally too good to some women. As a young woman, extra-large breasts may be a head-turning asset, but over time they can become a burden — making you self-conscious, restricting clothing options, not to mention causing back, shoulder and neck pain. Breast shouldn’t be a pain.
Benefits of Breast Reduction
Breast surgery reduction results in breasts that are smaller and lighter. This reduction in breast size will leave you with a chest that is more in proportion with the rest of your body. Many women find that reduction mammaplasty gives them increased self-confidence along with more proportionate curves. Breast reduction can reduce the pain of overly large breasts, expand your clothing options and leave you with more hourglass curves.
There are several types of breast reduction surgery, varying in the amount of breast tissue that may be removed during the procedure. Dr. Adams will consult with you, using your ideal breast size and shape to determine his surgical technique. During the surgery, he will remove excess tissue, including fat, glandular tissue, and skin, reducing the overall size of your breasts.
Breast reduction surgery may be performed by itself or in combination with breast lift surgery. Because of gravity, large breasts tend to sag more than smaller breasts. Many breast reduction patients wish that their breasts were not only smaller, but also perkier. This combined surgical approach results in breasts that are smaller and that sit higher on the chest. Your nipples may also be repositioned to a higher location on your chest, if needed.
While many women seeking breast reduction do so for cosmetic reasons, there are many additional reasons to undergo breast reduction. Many patients find that their large breasts result in neck, shoulder and back pain. They have difficulty finding clothing that fits properly, or feel self-conscious when wearing revealing outfits. Many have received unwanted attention because of their large breasts. Many say that they feel “top-heavy,” with overly large breasts that don’t match the rest of their silhouette. If you’ve always wished that your natural breast size was smaller, reduction mammaplasty may be right for you.
Reduction Mammaplasty removes excess fat, glandular tissue and skin to give you a breast size more in proportion with your body. Much the same way as breast augmentation, Dr. Adams will carefully consult with you to determine and craft your ideal breast size and shape.
