Breast reduction surgery – also referred to as mammoplasty – is a procedure done to reduce a woman’s breast size. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that more than 90,000 breast surgeries are performed in any given year. It is worth noting that the surgery is not meant for women alone. Men with conditions like gynecomastia- abnormally large breasts- can benefit from a male breast reduction.
Reasons to Consider Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction surgery is performed for both aesthetic and health reasons. For some women, excessively large breasts are a cosmetic concern. They might have a hard time finding clothing or swimwear that fits properly. They might also feel as though they are always dressed provocatively because they cannot seem to cover their breasts fully.
For other women, excessively large breasts can cause health issues and physical pain. Large breasts can be heavy, and this can cause back pain and bad posture. Large, heavy breasts can also cause shoulder discomfort from ill-fitting bra straps digging into the skin. The weight of your chest can also cause issues with sitting properly at a desk or even standing up straight.
Whether for cosmetic or health reasons, a breast reduction surgery at the Institute of Aesthetic Surgery can help alleviate these issues. By removing excess fat and tissue in the breasts, our medical team can create a more proportionate figure. We will work with you to determine the size and shape that you would like.
Men who are affected by gynecomastia can also undergo breast reduction surgery. Removing excess fat and tissue from the pectoral muscles can help shape a more masculine chest.
Who Should Consider Having Breast Reduction Surgery?
The aim of having breast surgery is to get nicely shaped, smaller breasts that suit your overall image and are more proportionate to your body. If you are above 18 years and have realistic goals and proper health, you are a suitable candidate for this surgery. Teenage girls who are under 18 years are normally not considered but exceptions are usually made for those experiencing physical or mental stress due to their large breasts.
During your consultation, our medical team will review your candidacy for treatment. We can then create a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.
At The Institute of Aesthetic Surgery, we understand the needs of our patients and we aim to provide are, comfortable and effective treatments. Contact The Institute of Aesthetic Surgery in Orlando to schedule your consultation for breast reduction surgery.
