When you think of breast surgery, what comes to mind? Many people will automatically think of breast augmentation, however, there are many kinds of breast surgeries done today. Breast reduction is a popular procedure. In fact, there was a dramatic spike in breast reduction surgeries in 2017, increasing by 11%. Read on to learn more about this procedure and how it can benefit you.
Breast reduction surgery can help relieve back and neck pain associated with large breasts. It can also help relieve other symptoms that come with overly large breasts, including rashes under the breasts, marks from bra straps digging into the shoulders, and an inability to take part in exercise or physical activities. The amount of tissue that is removed will depend on the size of the patient, though the final cup size is always just right.
Living with overly large breasts can cause self-consciousness for many women and can cause shopping for clothes to be a stressful experience. Breast reduction surgery can help women to feel more comfortable in their bodies, resulting in a boost of confidence.
Breast reduction surgery is often covered by insurance plans if patients have symptoms that are not relieved with more conservative measures, like massage therapy or quality sports bras. Before undergoing surgery, there is a process of pre-approval that your surgeon and the staff will work with you to accomplish. This includes submitting documentation from your family physician of the failed nonsurgical treatments.
