Benefits of Breast Reduction: Comfort, Aesthetics, and Increased Self-esteem
Reducing the size of disproportionate breasts can relieve back pain, correct posture, and improve your self-image, generally helping you to feel more comfortable in your own skin. Dr. Craig Foster will discuss the many breast reduction benefits with you during a consultation at his office in Manhattan, NY. With his vast experience and expertise, Dr. Foster can help you to achieve all of your cosmetic and restorative goals.
Physical and Emotional Comfort
If you choose to undergo breast reduction surgery you can experience a number of physical and emotional benefits. Perhaps the most significant immediate benefit is relief from chronic discomfort. By reducing the weight of the breasts and making them more proportionate to the rest your body, you can alleviate persistent neck, back, and shoulder pain. If you were previously unable to participate in sports or other physical activities, you may now be able to enjoy them, which can improve your overall health. Other benefits include:
- Correction of adversely affected posture
- Relief from breathing problems
- Relief from persistent irritation caused by bra straps
- Creation of more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing breast contours
- Correction of asymmetry
- Better-fitting clothing and increased clothing options
Breast Reduction for Men
Men with gynecomastia, or abnormally large breasts, may also be candidates for breast reduction. Traditional weight loss methods may be recommended for men who are overweight or obese prior to undergoing breast reduction. However, when surgery is recommended, men often experience a significant boost in confidence. In addition to removing tissue, Dr. Foster gives male patients refinements to create a more masculine chest shape.
Planning Your Procedure
In order to provide you with the greatest possible benefits of breast reduction surgery, you will undergo an in-depth consultation with Dr. Foster. Together, you will discuss your goals and review the risks and benefits of breast reduction. On average, breast reduction surgery takes about two hours, but combining the procedure with other enhancements such as a breast lift may extend surgery time. Just prior to your surgery, a certified anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia. Dr. Foster will then perform your breast reduction by removing fat and excess skin from the underside of the breast, and repositioning the nipple. He will then close incisions with sutures, and you will be bandaged and taken to the recovery room.
Women with large, sagging breasts who experience chronic neck, back, or shoulder pain may be candidates for breast reduction surgery. In addition to alleviating chronic pain, women may wish to improve their body proportions for aesthetic reasons in order to increase their confidence. Breast reduction is generally recommended only for women who have fully developed breasts, but may be performed on adolescents in severe cases.
Breast reduction not only alleviates chronic pain associated with large breasts, but it can also restore feelings of confidence as you achieve your personal cosmetic goals.
