Breast reduction is one of the most rewarding plastic surgery procedures Dr. Ary Krau offers. Women of all ages and backgrounds who struggle with physical and emotional distress related to oversized breasts can experience the life-changing transformation of breast reduction. Read on as Dr. Krau outlines some of the most common benefits of the procedure.
Better Breast Appearance
Breast reduction removes glandular tissue, fat and skin from the breasts to create a proportional and youthful breast size and shape. After breast reduction, the breasts are smaller and firmer and they sit higher on the chest. The procedure can also improve the appearance of large or stretched-out nipples and/or areolas.
Oversized breasts make it nearly impossible to find bras and clothing that not only fits, but looks flattering. After breast reduction, bras fit more comfortably and the breasts look more attractive in lingerie, swimsuits and other types of form-fitting clothing.
Less Pain and Discomfort
By reducing the size of heavy, pendulous breasts, the surgery can alleviate chronic physical discomfort. Patients no longer suffer from back, neck or shoulder pain due to the mass and weight of their breasts. They no longer have to worry about irritation or rashes in the creases underneath the breasts, or indentations in the shoulders from their bra straps digging into the skin.
Large, heavy breasts get in the way of exercise, sports and other physical activities. Women with oversized breasts are often discouraged from participating in any activity that involves running or jumping because of the possibility of physical pain. Reducing the size and weight of the breasts affords patients the ability to enjoy activities they may have previously avoided.
With the freedom to wear whatever clothing they want and enjoy a wide range of physical activities, patients usually experience a surge in self-confidence after breast reduction. Patients can also engage with other people without worrying about attracting unwanted attention due to their breasts.
Ultimately, breast reduction gives women the opportunity to feel comfortable in their own skin for perhaps the first time in their lives.
