Being in pain because of your big breasts is not a joke. Symptomatic macromastia can cause a lot of problems, and you should consider getting a breast reduction.
Breast reduction is a simple cosmetic procedure and sometimes reduced breasts need a lift. If you need a breast reduction lift, Sydney has some great surgeons available to you. But first, let’s take a look at what is breast reduction surgery, and do you really need one.
What’s the point of breast surgery?
Breast surgery has a couple of goals.
The first goal is the most obvious one – to create a pleasing contour that is better proportioned to your body.
The second goal is not an obvious one, but it’s important nonetheless. If you’re experiencing any kind of neck or back pain, the goal is to remove that pain by reducing your breasts.
Many women reduce their breasts to alleviate physical symptoms such as pain, but the cosmetic benefits of this procedure should not be overlooked.
Here is a list of things that will happen to you if you get a breast reduction surgery:
– You will look more youthful because your breasts will be firmer and lifted
– Bras will fit better, and they will become more comfortable to wear
– Your overall silhouette will be more physically pleasing and balanced
– Swimsuits will fit better
– Form-fitting clothes will fit better
– Large nipples and stretched areolas can be reduced during the procedure
– Your self-esteem will likely increase
When should you get breast reduction surgery?
Having big breasts is not a joke. Women sometimes say ‘’Hey, look at my eyes, they are up here’’. This is meant to be a joke, but big breasts can lead to some mental health issues.
When you have big breasts, it really changes people’s focus and opinion of you, and sometimes you’re not taking seriously.
Most surgeons require their patients to consult with psychiatrists before getting a breast reduction surgery.
Will your insurance pay for your surgery?
There are no particular guidelines on how big breasts are considered ‘’too big’’. Insurance companies will usually cover the expenses of your procedure if you display all the symptoms of macromastia.
If you’re having shoulder, neck, and back pain, or having trouble exercising, you might be a good candidate for breast reduction.
What’s surgery like?
The surgery takes from two to five hours, depending on the size of your breasts and the skill of your surgeon.
You should discuss your desired breast size with your surgeon, but there is no guarantee that you’ll get the size you want. Sometimes surgeons need to make that decision during surgery.
Living with new breasts
Technically speaking, not new, just improved, but all the same. The recovery process is long, but it is not particularly painful. Your breasts will feel swollen, stiff, and sore, but that will all go away. It’s recommended that you use scar creams during the process of rehabilitation.
Nobody likes scars, and they disappear over time, but you can speed up that process by using creams with silicon oil in them.
Is it worth it?
In most cases, breast reduction surgery is worth it, and you should get it done.
If you have any questions about this procedure, and you want to get it done soon, call Dr Naveen Somia and let him explain everything about this procedure to you before you make the decision to reduce your breasts.
