Some Perks of Breast Reductions – Bariatric Edition

When thinking of a breast reduction, generally you are wanting to get smaller breasts but the breast reduction can be so much more.  To start with, breast reduction enables women to get a better, more comfortable size but there are additional perks and added benefits.

To start with when a breast reduction is performed, it involves removing excess tissue – This mens that the skin is removed as well as your breasts are repositioned to a higher, better position on the wall of your chest.  As a final result, breasts are firmer more youthful and in a better proportion with the rest of your body.

Most women have a bit of breast asymmetry.  Some women have this more pronounced than others.  If you have this sort of situation you can discuss it with your plastic surgeon and he can make corrections during the breast reduction to have both breasts looking more symmetrical. 

Generally when a woman has very large breasts, they also have very large areolas.  During a breast reduction, the areoles can be made smaller to give a more balanced look to the new sized breasts.

Commonly large breasts cause severe discomfort in the back, neck and shoulders.  Some women have such severe pain that they are no longer able to participate in sports such as biking or running.  A reduction in the size of the breasts can enable women to get back to participating in the sports they like.  

A perk of having a breast reduction is the bonus of being able to update your wardrobe to clothes that you were unable to wear due to the plunging necklines and sheer see through tops.  Regular sized breasts means being able to shop with the masses and follow the styles of today.
