Physical & Emotional Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery –
Plastic surgeons tend to universally agree that the gratification they experience from performing breast reduction surgery surpasses that which they experience from almost any other procedure.
Similarly, that same feeling of satisfaction tends to be shared by breast reduction surgery patients. Out of all cosmetic procedures, breast reduction surgery tends to produce among the highest degree of patient contentment, with patients consistently reporting being highly satisfied with the results of their breast reduction surgery.
Having abnormally large breasts can cause a strain on one’s life that is both physical and emotional. That’s why at AMAE Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali is committed to providing all of his Detroit area breast reduction surgery patients with the sense of relief they deserve.
In this article, we will discuss the many benefits of breast reduction surgery.
Breast Reduction Surgery for Physical Relief
Breast reduction surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures by plastic surgeons. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that, in 2011, more than 63,000 breast reduction surgeries were performed in the United States.
One hallmark of breast reduction surgery that sets it apart from other plastic surgeries is the physical relief it provides patients. The strain on one’s back caused by the excessive weight of one’s breasts often plays a major role in their decision to undergo breast reduction surgery.
Excessively large breasts can cause pain and discomfort to not just the back, but also the shoulders and neck, all of which often factor into the decision to get breast reduction surgery. Bra straps tend to be located directly on top of the grooving of the shoulders, and the weight of one’s breasts can cause them to grind into the skin, furthering the discomfort that can be alleviated through breast reduction surgery.
Breast reduction surgery may also be a sensible choice for Detroit area patients who’s dramatic weight loss has caused their breasts to sag or appear stretched out, both of which can cause painful rashes or chafing in the area underneath the breasts.
Breast Reduction Surgery for Emotional Relief
The emotional toll of disproportionately large breasts can be devastating. Rude stares, inappropriate comments and even unwanted physical advances are all, tragically, common for women with very large breasts.
For teens, this can take the form of unbearable teasing and bullying. In fact, clinical studies suggest adolescents suffering macromastia (a condition that causes the breasts to grow exponentially) experience serious blows to their self-esteem and overall quality of life, making breast reduction an even more sensible choice. Teens with macromastia who undergo breast reduction surgery find themselves freed from the negative physical and emotional impacts of having disproportionately large breasts.
Clinical studies also show that teens diagnosed with macromastia three times more likely to develop eating disorders, yet another reason to consider breast reduction surgery.
Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction offers three-for-one surgical benefits, addressing both functional/physical, aesthetic/appearance and emotional/psychological concerns. Studies find that the relief patients feel from their breast reduction surgery tends to be almost instantaneous. While patients still tend to experience the soreness that accompanies virtually any surgical procedure, the discomfort from the excessive weight of the breasts was no longer present upon conclusion of their breast reduction surgery.
At the Detroit area’s AMAE Plastic Surgery, most breast reduction surgery patients seek out the procedure not simply because they wish to change their appearance, but as a way of treating something that has brought them a great deal of physical and emotional discomfort.
Breast reduction surgery patients are usually able to resume their normal routine after about 1-2 weeks. That said, breast reduction surgery patients should wait at least two months before engaging in strenuous physical
