Plano, Texas residents ask what to expect from a breast reduction
Large breasts are heavy, uncomfortable, and can cause physical and emotional stress. Self-esteem issues may occur. Clothes may not fit appropriately. Women with large breasts may hide behind bulky clothes. If any of this sounds like you, a breast reduction may be an option. Located in Plano, Texas, Dr. Patrick Obasi, of Noble Cosmetic Surgery, offers breast reductions to change the size of women’s breasts.
Why choose breast reduction?
Also called reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgeries are performed to remove excess fat, tissue, and skin.
The weight of large breasts can stop you from living a normal, active life. Your bra straps may dig into your shoulders causing discomfort. You may be self-conscious about your appearance. Candidates for breast reduction surgery are generally:
- Physically healthy, non-smokers
- Sensitive about having large breasts
- Unable to participate in regular physical activity
- Suffering from back, neck, and shoulder pain
- Experiencing skin irritation under the breasts or indentations from bra straps
What to expect
As with any procedure, it is important to have realistic expectations. Your breast reduction surgery will be tailored to give you a natural-looking, proportionate result. Your procedure may reduce breast size, reposition the nipples, resize the areolas, and lift the breasts for a youthful look.
Following your procedure, you may have bandages on the incisions and an elastic bandage around your breasts to minimize swelling and to support your breasts as they heal. A drain may be placed under the skin to collect excess fluid. Follow your doctor’s directions to ensure a smooth recovery period.
The goal of a breast reduction surgery is to make you feel better about the way you look while alleviating your physical and emotional pain. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Patrick Obasi to learn more. Call Noble Cosmetic Surgery today. (214) 974-4411
