If you have overly large breasts that are causing you discomfort and are inconvenient to deal with, you may want to consider breast reduction surgery. Women with large, heavy breasts often experience several physical challenges and mental stress, but breast reduction can be life-changing,and improve quality of life. But who is a candidate for breast reduction.
Breast reduction surgery
Breast reduction surgery involves removing excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue, to reduce the size of the breasts. It is an outpatient procedure that is done under general anesthesia, and takes about 2 hours on average.
Who is a Candidate for Breast Reduction?
Typical candidates for breast reduction are women that feel self-conscious and insecure about their large breasts. They also experience physical problems such as neck, back, and shoulder pain, as well as rashes, and skin irritation beneath the breasts. Women with large breasts that are out of proportion with the rest of their body, are also good candidates for breast reduction.
In addition, women with large breasts that are hindering their ability to enjoy an active lifestyle are also good candidates for breast reduction. Heavy breasts often make it difficult to take part in physical activities such as jogging, aerobics, and swimming. Breast reduction surgery can free women from these physical limitations.
Candidates for breast reduction should also be in good health, and have fully developed breasts.
