If you are unhappy with your breast size or have disproportionately sized breasts, talk to Dr. Foley about the benefits of breast reduction surgery. Undergoing a breast reduction could help you feel better about your body and figure. This breast enhancement procedure not only improves your appearance but can also alleviate some of the discomfort, posture problems, or skin irritation you experience because of having very large breasts.
Reasons to Undergo Breast Reduction Surgery
Many patients choose to undergo breast reduction surgery because they are self-conscious about their appearance or have to limit physical activities because of having large breasts. Back pain, posture problems, and skin irritation around the breasts are some of the side effects of having overly large breasts and these can be corrected with surgery. Reasons to undergo this procedure include:
- Reduce back, neck, and shoulder pain
- Improve posture
- Say goodbye to skin irritation under the breast crease
- Enjoy a full range of physical activities without discomfort
- Improve self-confidence and self-esteem
How Breast Reduction Surgery is Performed
This procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Dr. Foley will perform the procedure using one of several techniques that involve making incisions around the areola to access the breast tissue. He may perform light liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue and then lift and reshape the underlying breast tissue to create a more attractive contour. Any incisions are closed with sutures, skin adhesive, or surgical tape. You may need to wear a post-surgical bra for a few weeks after surgery so that the tissues can heal in their proper position. You will notice a significant difference once the swelling has resolved.
Undergoing a breast reduction could be just what you need to enjoy a boost of self-confidence and a better quality of life.
