How Breast Reduction Surgery Can Benefit You

If you have ever avoided an activity due to discomfort caused by large breasts, breast reduction surgery can benefit you. Some of the advantages of breast reduction surgery include:

  • Reducing chronic back, shoulder, and neck pain.
  • Allowing you to stand straighter with less pain.
  • Mitigating shoulder grooves from bra straps.
  • Minimizing nerve pain caused by the pulling on your back.
  • Allowing you to find bras and clothing that fit better.
  • Allowing you to take part in sports and other activities you may have been unable to before
  • Reducing chronic skin irritation and rash under your breasts.
  • Improving self-image.

Candidates for Breast Reduction Surgery

You may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery if you are in generally good health and are a nonsmoker. If you smoke, you may have to quit for several weeks – a few weeks prior to surgery and a few after surgery to ensure a proper recovery. Candidates should also be at a healthy, stable weight.

You should postpone your procedure if you plan on having children, as breastfeeding may be challenging after breast reduction surgery. Furthermore, pregnancy can affect the results of your breast reduction surgery.

Final Results of Breast Surgery

You will see a reduction in size immediately after your procedure. However, the swelling may take a few months to go down completely. Your final results can last a long time as long as you keep up with a healthy lifestyle. However, gaining weight and becoming pregnant can change the size and shape of your breasts.
