What is Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction surgery is performed to reduce the size and weight of breasts. Women with large breasts often suffer from physical and emotional discomfort, including low self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery not only enhances the appearance of breasts, but it also gives patients the confidence and freedom to participate in physical activities they would otherwise not be able to perform. It can also help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts. That’s why surgical breast reduction is a very popular treatment for women with large and sagging breasts.
How is it Performed?
A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue from your breasts. In many cases, a breast uplift is performed at the same time to reshape your breast and reposition the nipple and areola for more youthful results. Depending on the size of your breasts, your skin and your anatomy the technique used by your surgeon will either be an inverted T reduction or a vertical pattern reduction.
The most common type of breast reduction is an inverted T reduction, especially for reducing very large breasts or those with excessive breast skin. Most patients are concerned about post-operative scarring and although it will not completely disappear, the scar will gradually fade over time.
