If you have ever considered a breast reduction, you probably have experienced a few negative side effects due to their size and weight. Here at Connecticut Plastic Surgery Group, we can help you find comfort and confidence through a breast reduction procedure.
What are some Side effects of Large Breasts?
Problematically large breasts affect many women who know the pain and discomfort that a bra simply can’t fix. The problem goes deeper than that, though— patients might experience chronic pain in the back, shoulders, and neck that can be harmful to posture and musculoskeletal integrity over a lifespan. Patients can also experience shortness of breath or headaches from the extra weight. Skin rashes or irritation can occur beneath the breast creases and on the shoulders due to bra chafing. Large breasts can limit a patient’s ability for physical activities or sports, and be costly to the patient seeking accommodating clothes or bras.
How is the Procedure Performed?
The breast procedure works by removing excess fat and tissue from each breast and cutting away the remaining skin. A professional will determine what kind of incision will be appropriate for the procedure. Paired with a breast lift, patients can experience an entirely new shape, size, and aesthetic to their body.
Fortunately, breast reductions can help patients lead a healthy, active lifestyle that is free from constant discomfort and limitation. The effects can also be internal, as many patients have trouble with emotional discomfort and self-image because their breasts are too large or uneven, and this can have an undesired effect on personal and professional lives. Although a breast reduction is surgical and may require an involved recovery, it is more than just a procedure for many patients.
