Case Study 3: Breast Reduction Surgery
Patients who suffer from large breasts can encounter a lot of discomfort. While heavy breasts may appear appealing, they can cause serious discomfort; this includes neck and shoulder pain as well as back pain. To correct the problem, some women choose to reduce their breast size through breast reduction.
How Can A Cosmetic Dermatologist Surgeon Reduce The Size Of My Breasts?
There are two techniques that can be implemented to effectively reduce breast size. Patients undergoing breast reduction with liposuction are getting excess fat removed from the breast. If there is plenty of fat present inside the breast, this could be a viable option. There is also the reduction mammoplasty, a procedure where the surgeon removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin. During this last procedure, the surgeon can also move the nipple and areola to a more desirable position.
The technique used for your procedure will depend on your requirements and the amount of fat and excess tissue inside the breasts. If the patients want to alter both size and shape of the breasts during cosmetic surgery, then the mammoplasty will be the best option. Of course, if the patient has a lot of fat in the breast and solely wants to reduce the breast size, a surgical procedure such as breast reduction will be used.
Should I Get Fat, Breast Tissue And Skin Removed?
This decision can only be made by your cosmetic surgeon and the aesthetic goals you have for yourself. If there is a lot of excess breast tissue inside the breast and you want to achieve a considerable decrease in cup size, the mammoplasty will be recommended. On the other hand, if you have a lot of fat in the breast, the same might be possible with breast reduction by liposuction. Therefore, it is always important to speak to your surgeon.
