Breast reduction surgery can reduce excessively large and sagging breasts. Any individual who feels their breasts are too large and perhaps disproportionate to their body may be a candidate for breast reduction surgery. Speaking with a surgeon is the best way to determine if this kind of surgery can help you achieve an appropriate breast shape and size to suit your body.
What You Can Expect
In many cases, a breast lift will be performed along with breast reduction surgery and the nipples may be repositioned to a new, higher position. This operation will also help to correct any asymmetry you may have (i.e. differences between the size and shape of your breasts).
When to Hold Off Surgery
It is advised that women planning to get pregnant should delay surgery until after birth, as lactation can sometimes be limited after this operation. For most individuals, however, breast reduction surgery is a viable option for improving your look and increasing self-confidence.
Have a Discussion with Your Surgeon
Before opting for breast reduction surgery, be sure to walk into your consultation certain about the outcome you’re picturing. It's a good idea to show photos to your surgeon and help them to visualise your expectations. Your surgeon can help to ensure that your expectations are realistic. After you have discussed the options, your personal satisfaction and well-being need to be taken into consideration before scheduling the surgery.
Improving your looks through breast reduction can have both a direct and indirect positive impact on your life, both personally and professionally. Speak with a doctor and be honest about your expectations. Let them know your ideas and wishes, and discuss how they can help guide you down the right path.
