A breast reduction is an important step in body maintenance for many women, and quite frankly men suffering from gynecomastia, or large wide breast tissue. This procedure is not only for large breasted woman, it can be useful for moms who are finished with their breast feeding days, or advanced age combined with gravity has brought about a pendulum effect to a woman of any size, that one finds less than flattering. The appearance of drooping or stretched breast can occur in young, middle-aged and older individuals.
Yes, a breast reduction is considered a cosmetic surgery that removes and reshapes the existing breast tissue, fat and skin. But, let's go further into some of the reasons and remedies for this procedure. The most prevalent concern lies with larger breasted women who believe or have been advised by a medical professional of the back strain, tenderness, and breathing difficulty as a result of their very large breasts. And quite honestly, some larger breasted women elect to have the surgery in order to look and feel skinnier, to get into sizes that match the rest of their body (instead of a large top and medium bottom).
On the other hand, there are the men who have either gained a large amount of weight or who have always been husky and have dealt with the protruding and extended pectoral muscles that resemble that of women's breasts. For all of the above, one's breasts have taken on a sack like appearance: too much in the sack or fairly empty, either way it's not where they want to be. A breast enhancement specialist trained in the artistry of breast reduction is licensed and ready for your case in your town. Your chosen surgeon will thoroughly explain that there are at least five different variations on the procedure. He or she will describe what you can expect from your individual experience.
There are multiple techniques used to this day. Your selection may be based on your breast size or the scar that you are most comfortable with. First, the vertical incision will leave a scar around the areola and down the center of the breast. Second, the inferior pedicle technique will utilize the same incision as the vertical except there will be an additional cut at the natural fold of the breast. Third, the liposuction only technique causes the least amount of scaring to women with thick healthy skin and predominately fatty breasts. Forth is the free nipple graft technique that allows for women with extraordinarily large, long, dense breasts to receive a substantial reduction in tissue, fat, and skin as the nipple and areola are removed and relocated, in order to simulate a lifted effect as well.
As you have read, all of the above methods vary based on the weight, droop, and composition of the woman or man's breasts tissue and the scaring that he or she is comfortable with after recovery. Recover for the breast reduction procedure can take up to a year depending upon two factors: the technique used and the amount of breast removed. No matter what you choose, you'll be a lot lighter, slimmer, and walk a lot taller from here on out.
