Breast Reduction Surgery…Are you too young or too old?
Naturally oversized breasts cause physical and emotional problems for women of all ages. Breast Reduction or Mammaplasty Reduction is the only way to permanently reduce the breast size and create breasts that are more in proportion to your body.
With so many women today seeking breast reduction surgery, surgeons have come to understand the various reasons women choose to downsize and reshape their breasts. Here are a few:
- To make overly large, heavy breasts…smaller
- Eliminate emotional distress, discouragement and embarrassment
- Reduce or eliminate back & neck pain
- Relieve shoulder discomfort caused by bra strap grooves
- Get rid of breast crease skin irritation and rashes
- Decrease excess, stretched skin that causes low hanging breasts
- Resize the aereola area
- Create a breast size in proportion with your body
- Renew self esteem, self confidence and sexual enjoyment
- Be able to wear and enjoy the clothing you’ve always wished you could
- Enjoy more activities you couldn’t due to breast size and weight
- Achieve Renewed health and beauty for life!
NEW RESEARCH SHOWS THAT BREAST REDUCTION DELIVERS “RELIEF”…Back and neck pain as well as grooves hindered activities of daily living. After surgery, women were able to be more active, lift heavier objects and enjoy more dynamic movements…with less stress and little to no discomfort. Spinal weakness and disorders from lower back distress were improved. Self confidence increased as did self satisfaction.
AM I TOO YOUNG FOR BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY? This is a common question in today’s society. Here’s my answer….There is no specific, ideal age for a Breast Reduction, but among younger women these things need to be considered: 1) Is the patient in her 20’s and experiencing the above mentioned problems. 2) Does she have a strong desire to reduce the size and shape of her overly large breasts (macromastia)? 3) Has she stopped growing in height and in breast size? 4) Is she emotionally mature? If the answer to these questions is yes…then she could be an ideal candidate. You should know that when younger women have Breast Reduction surgery…Revisional surgery may be needed later in life.
AM I TOO OLD FOR BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY?… another common question women in their 60’s plus frequently ask me. Mammaplasty Reduction is very common among more mature women and can be very effective with the correct assessment of her health, skin condition, emotional maturity etc. Older women typically suffer with “overly large breasts” due to hormone changes from menopause and weight gain. They reap the same benefits as younger women…and today are more eager to have these age defying, health restoring procedures.
WHAT’S INVOLVED IN BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY? This is a surgery used to remove excess fatty breast tissue and glandular tissue while removing excess skin in order to downsize and reshape the breast to be more in proportion with your body. Note: it’s important to be at a normal or close to normal proportional weight, and be able to maintain it to avoid affecting your long term results.
OK…That said, the bottom line is: whether you choose to make a dramatic change or just reduce your bra size by a few cups, Breast Reduction Surgery offers the best results for women with large, heavy breasts. Should you ever want to increase your breast size…Implants or Fat Grafting can achieve this.
This is the time of year many men and women decide to do something for themselves. For the Holidays, for career reasons, health issues, to improve or enhance your their life…and just because they’ve always wanted to. If that describes you, let’s talk soon!
I‘m here to help you achieve optimal health and wellness, to look and feel your absolute best!
