When it comes to breast reduction, there are many compelling reasons why women would choose to have this cosmetic surgery. Every woman has their own perception of what the perfect size breast is and if their reality does not gel with those perceptions, then they have a problem. The predominant factor is that their breasts are simply too big. And when breasts are too large, especially for a woman's body frame and stature, physical complications occur.
When a woman's breasts are too large, physical activities such as exercising or even playing with their child can cause great pain. Pain in the shoulders, neck and back are grounds of primary concern. Living with constant pain due to large breasts is an issue with the quality of life they lead, not only physically but also emotionally and spiritually. In teenagers, large breasts can unintentionally invite teasing and unwanted amorous advances from their peers, causing great emotional stress and also undermining their self-confidence and self-esteem. For all women with these issues, they might have deep grooves in their skin where their bras are cutting into them or have problems buying clothing that fits properly.
Quality of life becomes the focal point when women seek the help of a cosmetic surgeon for a breast reduction procedure. It doesn't matter how they got there; what matters is that they are seeking help and making every effort to improve their life. The basics of breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty as the cosmetic surgeons call it, involves the removal of excess skin and fat as well as body tissue in order to create and shape a smaller, more pleasing breast. In addition, the area around the nipple is sometimes reshaped to accommodate the surgically reduced breast.
It is important to note that breast reduction is not without its drawbacks. Scars from the surgery are a result but can be hidden by clothing. And for the most part, your bras and swimsuits will also cover those scars. Loss of sensation in the nipple area is one factor as well as the chance of both breasts not being quite the same size after the reduction. In addition, the surgery itself is not without its complications. Irregular bleeding, adverse effects to anesthesia and infection are a few of the possible outcomes. For some women, breastfeeding their future children may not be possible. This is because when the cosmetic surgeon removes tissue, often times, the milk ducts have to be removed as well.
It is up to the woman to talk openly about her wants and expectations from the surgery. The cosmetic surgeon should be equally forthcoming about the risks and possible outcomes. The preparation, procedures, reaction to anesthesia, and recovery can differ greatly from person to person. Costs can also play a factor in the surgery. However, when it is a matter of a woman's health rather than a purely cosmetic elective surgery, insurance companies sometimes do pay for the procedure.
Women who undergo the breast reduction cosmetic surgery should be aware that it could take up to a year for the breast to truly settle into the new shape and place they are meant to be in. Because women have to deal with more hormonal changes than men, their bodies tend to take a little longer to recuperate. For example, when it comes to having a period or experiencing pregnancy, one of the body parts that experiences change are the breasts. So, if a woman has just undergone surgery, guess what happens? Those hormonal changes will lengthen the recovery time.
The great thing about having breast reduction cosmetic surgery is that results are noticeable almost immediately. Once some of the swelling goes down and a 'real' bra can be worn rather than a surgical dressing, women will notice that they have to go buy new tops to accommodate their new figure. The pain of carrying two large weights around is gone and the first thing strangers notice will not be the breasts. For many women, it is a liberating feeling, well worth the recovery time and permanent scars that result from the breast reduction surgery. It is also an adjustment period, not only for the woman, but also for the family and friends. It takes time to become accustomed to such a radical change. However, most women are pleased with their results - and their new wardrobe they buy to reflect their 'new' body
