If you’ve been considering breast reduction, there’s no time like the present to take the next step! In the case of plastic surgery, the next step is to schedule a consultation with an experienced breast surgeon like Dr. Zachary Farris, who is double-board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery.
Nearly 100,000 women undergo breast reduction surgery in a typical year. The age of patients varies, as reducing large, heavy breasts can be equally beneficial to a young woman or a more mature woman, depending on her goals.
Some of the benefits of breast reduction surgery include:
- Improved comfort in your daily life. Exercise, recreation, clothing – all of these aspects of your life may be more comfortable after breast reduction.
- Reduction in irritation and chafing. Oftentimes, people with large, heavy breasts are vulnerable to chafing and rashes where the breasts meet the chest wall. You may also find certain sleeping positions irritating and uncomfortable if you feel like your breasts are in the way. Smaller, lighter breasts may eliminate these issues.
- Feel more at-home in your skin. Having a more comfortable breast size may lead to increased self-confidence, an improved self-image, or simply feeling more like yourself – like your body is aligned with who you are as a person.
- Reduced aches and pains. Heavy breasts tend to place a lot of strain on your back, neck, and shoulder muscles. You may experience aches and pains, headaches, and grooves in your shoulders from your bra straps. Breast reduction may alleviate these symptoms.
Of course the exact benefits will depend on you as an individual. People seeking breast reduction have their own reasons for doing so, and the quality of life improvements that you receive from breast reduction will depend on your concerns related to your breast size.
It’s important to discuss your candidacy with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Farris. He will take all of your concerns into consideration and help you choose an approach that provides the final breast size that will make you the happiest.
