What Is a Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that is performed to reduce the size of a woman’s breasts and achieve a well-balanced proportion. This is done by carefully removing excess skin, fat, and breast tissue in order to create a smaller, natural-looking contour of the breasts.
Breast Reduction Benefits
A breast reduction can help to address several issues that women with larger breasts often face, including:
- Back, neck, and/or shoulder pain
- Skin irritation caused by shoulder indentation near the bra strap area
- Skin irritation or rash beneath the breast folds
Ideal Candidates for Breast Reduction
Breast reduction can be an effective option for women who struggle with physical discomfort or self-consciousness caused by overly large or pendulous breasts. In some cases, a breast reduction may be combined with procedures such as a breast lift or liposuction in order to further enhance the result.
Breast Reduction Recovery & Follow Up
Following your breast reduction, surgical dressings or a support bra will be placed over your incision lines. These are to be worn for several weeks in order to ensure proper healing of the skin and tissue.
In most cases, oral medication should be enough to help manage any initial discomfort. You will be able to resume light activity and work within the first 7-10 days of your breast reduction surgery. However, you should avoid heavy lifting for roughly six weeks.
