What is Breast Reduction Surgery?
A breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgery that removes extra fat, tissue and skin from the breasts. The goal of this surgery is to reduce the size and the weight of the breasts. A breast reduction is often considered by women who have breasts that are out of proportion from the rest of their bodies or breasts that are causing physical pain to the body. Suffering from shoulder, neck and back pain is the primarily the reason that many women opt for this surgery.
Who Can Get the surgery?
A breast reduction can be performed at any age, however, Dr. Quintero advises that a patient’s breasts are fully developed. Breast reductions aren’t just for women. Men with conditions such as gynecomastia (in which male breasts are abnormally enlarged) may also decide to get the surgery. The professionals at JQ Plastics are here to help you feel confident and healthy.
Will I Regret Getting a Breast Reduction?
A large number of studies have found that women who have had breast reduction surgery commonly have a heightened sense of self-esteem, physical health and body image after. 95% of women in one survey said that they felt satisfied with the results due to their quality of life increasing.
The reduction in chronic pain is often the most exciting result from this surgery for many women. Having that weight, literally lifted off the shoulders, allows for chronic pain to disappear almost instantly. Many women end up having a more active lifestyle as well, because their smaller breasts allow them to enjoy more cardiovascular and aerobic activities again.
