The medical term? Mammaplasty.
We often hear about Breast Augmentation and how happy patients are with their new look, however, Breast Reduction can not only have the same effect on their patients but also provide relief of back pain, posture issues and many other benefits.
Thinking of having a breast reduction? You may be good candidate.
If you’re a woman with a small frame and have larger breasts you may experience a variety of troublesome physical and psychological effects.
What types of issues can this cause? Well to name a few:
• Back pains
• Posture issues
• Difficulty or even inability in exercising or taking part in sports
• Self-consciousness (for example, clothes don’t fit properly)
• Depression (Associated with Self-consciousness)
• Unwanted attention or harassment
• Neck aches
• Painful rashes due to sweating.
How can a Plastic Surgeon help to alleviate these symptoms? What does the surgical procedure consist of?
Breast reduction surgery is where a Plastic Surgeon removes glandular tissues, skin and fat in order to properly proportion the patient’s breast with their body. This practice is very common in women who are looking to alleviate the above mentioned discomforts or suffering.
The result of Reduction mammoplasty
Your breast reduction surgery will leave you with the perfect breast size and minimal scarring will usually fade almost entirely over the ensuing 10 to 18 months.
You will not only feel better about yourself and your look, but you will be relieved of these discomforts we have been discussing!
What is the recovery time?
Full recovery is usually about six weeks, however during the first six weeks it is highly recommended that you avoid strenuous or vigorous movement such as exercise or heavy lifting. You will also be informed of the type of undergarments you should avoid – such as wired bras
It is also important to note that your breasts will be swollen and sore for the first few days, this is quite normal! Your Doctor will of course inform you of all the best practices for a speedy and healthy recovery as well as all possible side effects.
What about the cost?
We have seen prices ranging for $4200.00 US to upwards of $10,000 however, the cost takes into effect whether or not it is inclusive or exclusive of other associated charges.
Not all estimations Include charges for the operating room, anesthesia, supplies, and implants, overnight stay etc. Most operating room fees are very reasonable. Costs are different around the world, and each surgeon’s fees may differ. This is something you will have to discuss with your clinic of choice.
