Breast reduction surgery, therefore, plays an important role for many women to achieve a healthier size of breasts while the proportion of the rest of their bodies is also taken into consideration by experts. Your doctor will be able to guide you on the most ideal and natural-looking size of breasts for your body type.
Breast reduction surgery does not only help women to achieve a healthier and more ideal size for their breasts as sometimes women simply do not experience any of the negative effects such as pain, rashes under the breast area, or grooves on the shoulder due to bra straps, yet they just wish to reduce the size for a better appearance. Important to note that regular insurance can sometimes cover breast reduction surgeries if they are performed due to health concerns primarily.
As for breast reduction surgery, it is performed under general or regional anaesthetics. In general anaesthetic, you would be put to sleep throughout the operation and on regional anaesthetic, you would be awake, but the surgeon will inject the area to numb it completely. The surgery itself takes approximately two hours. Depending on the size you want to go down to and the amount of fat to be removed from the breasts, the type of surgery and incisions you will have might vary. Unfortunately, every breast surgery leaves marks where the incisions were made, but no one can see them when you wear a bikini or bra. Breast reduction scars will be under the breasts and depending on the incision type, you can work with your doctor to reduce the visibility of the marks. Secondly, nipples are repositioned and cut during the boob reduction operation and a possible areola reduction surgery can also be applied to achieve a more suitable nipple size through a nipple reduction operation once breasts are reduced. Depending on the fat tissues to be removed, nipples can completely be detached from the skin and reattached afterward. Often they are left intact with the skin so the cells are alive while the surgery is performed. As with all surgeries, there are some risks in having breast reduction surgery as well.
