While a lot of women are interested in breast enhancement, there are some women with naturally large chests for whom breast reduction is a necessary procedure. There are usually visible scars left behind after surgery, but new advances in breast reduction surgery have helped to reduce the appearance of these scars.
Many women who choose to have breast reduction surgery do so, because of the pain and discomfort they experience as a result of their heavy breasts. The breasts often drag on the shoulders and neck, causing symptoms such as aches in the neck, pain in the chest and back, and migraines.
Innovations in breast reduction surgery
Breast reduction surgery is done to reduce the size of the breasts. During the operation the nipple is repositioned. Traditionally this procedure has left behind unattractive scars. However new advances in breast reduction surgery, such as the SPAIR technique has helped to reduce these.
There is less scarring with the SPAIR technique, as the scars are confined to the nipple area. This is not the case with traditional breast reduction surgery that uses the anchor technique, leaving scars around the areola, as well as along the bottom of the breasts.The results with the SPAIR technique are also consistent and reliable.
In addition to doing research about the different breast reduction techniques, patients should do due diligence when selecting a plastic surgeon. They should check to ensure that the surgeon is suitably experienced, and can perform the operation comfortably.
If you have extremely large breasts that limit your physical activities, choosing breast reduction may be a life changing decision for you.
