One of the most popular procedures, when it comes to cosmetic enhancements, is breast augmentation surgery. Breast reduction, while not as popular as breast implants, can enhance a woman’s body cosmetically but also alleviate many health issues associate with breasts that are extremely large.
When too large, the breasts can become a source of great discomfort, because the extra weight pulls downward on the muscles in the shoulder, neck and upper back. If not treated earlier, significant pressure can be placed on the spine causing extreme pain. In addition to the pain and potentially long-term effects, oversized breasts can create various secondary health concerns: impaired breathing, poor blood circulation, deep cut lines from bra straps and chafing of the skin of the chest and the lower breast.
Breast Reduction surgery for women can relieve these health issues by removing the extra breast tissue and extra skin. The surgical procedure for reducing the breast size of women is medically known as reduction mammoplasty.
Breast reduction surgery, or mammoplasty, for women takes into consideration the tissue viability of the nipple-areola complex, the amount of tissue to be released and proper lines needed to minimize scarring. This is so as the female breasts are intended to maintain functional sensitivity and lactational capability and a beautiful appearance following surgery. Sometimes the surgical procedure on women also involves simultaneous uplift of drooping nipples or the nipple areolar complex. Sometimes the surgery on women also involves striking a symmetrical balance between the left and right breasts.
