Is Breast Reduction Right For You?

Apr 18, 2008
If you are currently interested in having breast reduction surgery, then there are many things you need to consider in order to make sure the procedure is as successful as possible.

So, what is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure which should only be performed by someone who is a Board Certified plastic surgeon. The procedure entails the removal of excess fat, glandular tissue and skin, in order to reduce a women's breast size.

In many instances, a woman's breasts may grow to be larger than she desires, as a result it can tend to look out of proportion to the rest of her body. As a result to a woman's breasts growing too large, she can start to experience back, neck and shoulder pains from the added weight which is pulling on her body.

When this is the current scenario, this surgery can improve the currently quality of her life as well as her own self body image.

Is A Reduction In Size Right For You?

Breast reduction is a major surgical procedure. For this reason alone, the decision on whether or not to have this surgery should be taken very seriously. To be considered an ideal candidate for this procedure, you must meet most of the follow criteria:

1. You should be in reasonably good health and be a non-smoker
2. Your expectations should be realistic
3. You should have taken the decision to have this surgery for yourself only
4. You should have a genuine concern about your breasts being too large
5. Your breasts should be prohibiting your physical activity
6. You may be experiencing neck, back or shoulder pain as a result of your breast size
7. You may possibly experience skin irritation beneath your breast crease
8. You may possibly have stretched skin with low-hanging breasts
9. Your nipples may rest below your crease when you don't have a bra on
10. You may possibly have enlarged areolas as a result of your stretched skin.

Choosing the Plastic Surgeon

By far, the most important decision to make will be the plastic surgeon you choose to operate on your body. It is exceedingly important that you choose a Board Certified plastic surgeon to perform the surgery.

By selecting a plastic surgeon who is Board Certified by the American or/and European Board of Plastic Surgery, you ensure that your surgeon will have at least 5 years of surgical training with a minimum of two years of training specifically in plastic surgery procedures.

The Consultation Appointment with the Plastic Surgeon

At the consultation you arrange with your plastic surgeon, you should be prepared to talk vividly about your body and the issues you feel they pose in your life. The plastic surgeon will most likely obtain the following information during the consultation appointment:

1. The reason(s) you've decided to have the surgery
2. Your desired outcome
3. Your current health status
4. Any prescriptions or medications you may be taking
5. Your families' history of cancer
6. The result of any mammograms or biopsies you may have had
7. You will be measured and examined
8. A photograph will mostly likely be taken of your nude torso for medical records
9. The surgeon will explain to you the possibly risks of anaesthesia and what you should expect from having the surgery

As you can see, breast reduction is a very serious surgical procedure, but when performed by an experienced Board Certified plastic surgeon, you can expect the results to be great for your own personal image and figure.
