Small Bother or Full-Blown Burden | When Does Breast Reduction Become Necessary?
- Posted on: Jun 18 2012
Countless women go through life wishing they had a larger, fuller bust line. Some women, on the other hand, have the opposite problem.
Breast Augmentation is the number-one surgical cosmetic procedure in the US. But, don’t let that fool you into thinking that bigger is always better. So, when do large breasts become “too much of a good thing?” When they start affecting your mental and physical health adversely.
Here are some of the top complaints among women with breasts that are too big:
- Improper posture
- Back pain
- Bone issues
- Breathing problems
- Low self-esteem
Suffering from these symptoms? It may be time to schedule a plastic surgery consultation.
“Lollipop” Breast Reduction
Thankfully, for women living with overly large breasts, plastic surgery can offer a solution: Breast Reduction Surgery. Traditionally, however, a breast reduction requires three incisions per breast: one around the areola, one from the base of the areola to the bottom of the breast and finally, a large anchor-shaped incision beneath the breast. While this technique can certainly prove effective, our practice is proud to offer a cutting-edge alternative: the “lollipop” breast reduction.
Borrowing its name from the shape of the incision, a lollipop procedure requires only two incisions and eliminates the horizontal anchor-shaped incision. What does this mean for the patient? Less scarring!
