Heavy sagging breasts can be a source of both physical pain and mental anguish. Neck, back and shoulder pain, as well as recurrent rashes underneath the breasts, can interfere with normal function and physical activity. Overlarge breasts can also result in severe disproportion in a woman's body. Breast Reduction is considered a reconstructive operation and can usually be covered by medical insurance.
Breast reduction is often performed at the hospital but selective cases can also be performed at the office operating facility. The procedures leaves scars which are usually acceptable to the patients. In some cases scarring may be less than optimal and additional treatment may be necessary to improve them.
After Breast Reduction Surgery
A supportive bra is worn for several weeks after breast reduction surgery and patients can usually return to work in one to two weeks. Careful and timely follow up is necessary.
