Do you have breasts that are too large for your frame? Oversized breasts are an issue for a number of women. This phenomenon is scientifically called macromastia and is commonly treated by plastic surgeons.
Breast-reduction surgery is also known as reduction mammoplasty. It removes extra fat, glandular tissue, and skin from your breasts to sculpt them into a size that is more proportionate to the rest of your body.
Large breasts are traditionally thought to be a sign of attractiveness. However, women with ample breasts may often find themselves feeling self-conscious in public. Along with body-image issues, oversized breasts can cause a number of problems:
Difficulty exercising and playing sports
Persistent skin rash/irritation under the breast
Difficulty finding bras and clothes that fit
Oversized breasts can stand out disproportionately from the rest of the body. Those who have a large bust tend to carry a lot of weight on the front, and the back becomes extremely sore as a result.
Breast-reduction surgery alleviates the strain from these tired muscles and gets rid of the associated heaviness. It works wonders in addressing your back pain, neck problems, poor posture, excessive sweating, skin infections, skin rashes, and pain caused by bra straps. It also makes it easier to participate in physical activities and find better-fitting lingerie and clothing.
A woman is encouraged to get breast-reduction surgery if the following is true:
They feel that their breasts are too big for their body.
Their breasts limit their physical activity.
They experience frequent pain in several parts of their body.
A big bust is not only found in overweight women but also in women within the average weight range.
A breast-reduction surgery is an irreversible change and therefore should be thought out carefully. Once affected, the breasts cannot go back to their former shape and size. It is highly recommended that a woman undergo breast reduction surgery only for herself and not to fulfill someone else’s wishes or to fit any sort of body ideal.
A breast-reduction surgery takes four to five hours to be performed. General anesthesia is administered before the surgical procedure is initiated. Once incisions have been created, the tissues are removed and adjusted as needed. The incisions are closed with stitches at the end of the procedure.
The recovery time for each patient is different. It depends on the individual patient and the degree or extent to which the breasts have been reduced. During your recovery, it will be vital to follow Dr. Pazmiño’s post-surgical care directions.
So if you’re tired of carrying all that extra weight around, get yourself a breast-reduction surgery – your body will thank you.
