5 things that happen after breast reduction surgery
Breast reduction surgery, or mammoplasty, is a way of reducing the size and weight of your breasts.
It can help to improve the proportions and shape of your breasts, and many of our patients find it helps to ease physical discomfort and bring back a renewed sense of confidence.
Read on to find out what to expect after breast reduction surgery:
1. Years of backache will become a thing of the past…
If you have a very large bust size, we understand that this can be uncomfortable and create problems with posture. You may have also suffered with back and shoulder pain as a result of your boobs, so it goes without saying that a breast reduction can take the weight off your back and alleviate pain.
2. Working out will become much easier…
Exercising with large breasts can be troublesome simply because they may just get in the way! After breast reduction surgery, the logistics of working out will be simpler and you will require less support from your sportswear. Just be sure to make sure you wait until you have been giving the OK by your surgeon in your post op check-up before you start exercising again as you will need time to heal and recover without aggravating the breast tissue.
3. Lingerie shopping won’t be such a chore;
If you have particularly large breasts you may have struggled to buy properly fitting bras on the high street with many lingerie shops and department stores going no larger than a DD or an E. After a breast reduction, you will have so many more options and bra shopping with become easier, fun and much more affordable and you will be able to experiment with different shapes and styles.
As you may know, custom made bras and specialist shops aren’t cheap and the styles they stock are usually more practical and supportive than they are fashionable.
4. You may feel more confident!
One of the main reasons why our patients consider breast reduction surgery is because having very large breasts affects their confidence. A very large chest can limit your choice of clothes particularly if your breasts are out of proportion with the rest of your body, so once they are brought into proportion then you may find that clothes fit you better too.
5. But don’t forget you will need to be patient…
As with all cosmetic surgery, patience is so important! You may start to see the results quickly, but you will not see the final benefits of your surgery for a number of months as they settle into their new position. One of the leading cosmetic surgeons we work with can advise whether a breast reduction is suitable for the results you want to achieve.
