Women all over the world dream of having full, voluptuous breasts that are shapely and youthful in appearance. Unfortunately, there can be too much of a good thing. Women who have overly large breasts carry an enormous amount of weight on their chests causing chronic neck and back pain. There is a solution, however, that will help women with overly large breasts reduce their burden and still maintain a beautiful breast shape – it’s called breast reduction or reduction mammaplasty.
If you are interested in a breast reduction in Irvine, CA or the Orange County area, then you should schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Song.
SYMPTOMS AND CONCERNS FROM WOMEN WITH LARGE BREASTS
While many may think being large chested isn’t such a dilemma, consider these facts first:
- Large breasts are heavy and cause chronic neck and back pain.
- Bra straps groove and press painfully into shoulders.
- Breasts hang over the rib cage area and become susceptible to heat irritation and rashes.
- Large breasts can cause breathing problems and make it difficult to exercise.
WHAT IS BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY?
If you have overly large breasts, you may benefit from breast reduction surgery. It is performed as an outpatient procedure and done under general anesthesia. Dr. Song considers breast reduction surgery as one of the most rewarding cosmetic surgery procedures he does simply because patients who were agonizing over back and neck pain can immediately feel relief. Patients are highly satisfied and notice instantly that their pre-operative symptoms are improved or eliminated entirely.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY
You can expect your breasts to ache for several days following a breast reduction procedure, but rest assured that the discomfort will not last forever. You can resume daily activities within a couple of days, and light exercise at the gym can also be part of your daily routine in as little as two weeks after surgery. Complete recovery and healing takes approximately two months, but you can start enjoying the results of your plastic surgery a few weeks after it has been performed.
