A breast reduction procedure is a popular surgical option for women who want to feel more comfortable and make their breasts more proportionate with their bodies. Also known as reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction surgery is particularly ideal for women who have naturally large breasts that are causing back and shoulder pain along with difficulties sleeping.
Beverly Hills patients who undergo this procedure have excess breast tissue removed to create chest curvature that is proportionate to their body type and evens out the size of each breast. The breasts are also lifted so that they don’t droop. Extra skin that is along the border and under the nipple of each breast is then removed to lift the nipples. The goal of this procedure is to create smaller and more attractive breasts that are perfectly shaped and perky.
The Value of Breast Reduction Surgery to Your Life
Many women report a greater sense of self-confidence and are able to fit into their clothes better following this procedure, especially when they have been struggling with larger breasts over the years. The loss of the additional weight that comes with having large breasts can also make it easier to move around with less pain and partake in physical activities more easily.
Ideal Candidates for this Procedure
Women who deal with regular back, neck and shoulder pain and have poor posture because of having larger breasts are usually ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery. Loss of sleep, difficulties exercising and experiencing infections and rash breakouts due to the trapped skin that is underneath oversized breasts are other good reasons to have this surgery. The procedure is also recommended for women who have a body mass index (BMI) that is less than 35 and want to reduce their breasts by two cup sizes or more.
