Am I A Good Candidate For Breast Reduction Surgery?

Are you thinking about having breast reduction surgery but arent sure if you are a good candidate? We can help!

Complications of Having Large Breasts

Breast reduction surgery is an effective solution for overly developed breasts that are causing symptoms. However, the lines are often blurred because the idea of being large chested is looked at as being favorable. Some women feel that they should be happy with their assets rather than annoyed by them.

The reality is that large breasts can cause unfavorable side effects such as the following:

Back, neck and shoulder pain
Discomfort when working out
Difficulty sleeping
Skin rashes and irritation
Breathing problems
Improper posture
Skeletal deformities
Self-esteem issues

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, breast reduction surgery is worth considering. Not only can you correct the pain and discomfort you are experiencing, but also you will have your self-esteem back.

Whats the Next Step if I Decide I am a Candidate?

Your first step is to meet with a qualified plastic surgeon who has a lot of experience with breast reductions. When meeting with Berlet Plastic Surgery, your consultation will include an overview of your health, the reasons for wanting breast reduction surgery and what you can expect from the procedure. Ask for before and after pictures so you can see our work!

Breast reduction surgery usually takes a few hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia. The skin, fat and tissue from the lower part of the breast are removed, and the nipples may be moved to a higher position on the breast. If your breasts are very large, they may need to be grafted to a new location. If this is the case, you will lose sensation in the nipple.

There are two ways to complete the surgery. The first is by making a vertical incision and then removing the fat and tissue. The second way involves a smaller incision, and the fat is removed by liposuction. There are pros and cons to both, which you may discuss during your consultation.

If you are tired of living with overdeveloped breasts and want to learn more about your options for reduction, schedule a consultation with Dr. Berlet today.
