Bigger breasts are not always better. They may seem disproportionate to the body, or could cause physical pain that may make you wish they were smaller. People change the size of their breasts for a variety of reasons – most prominently, to look and feel better in their body.
Deciding to get smaller breasts implies a desire to change the shape and contour of the breasts to make them more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
A skilled surgeon can make these changes, creating an end result where the breasts look in perfect proportion to the rest of your body. This is done by removing any excess sagging skin and fat – and work with the body to turn it into a shape that better fits the curves of the body.
Not only will your body look as if the breasts were firmer and in a good shape, the symmetry of your breasts along with a drastic reduction in sagging can occur as well.
Most of the time, women who choose to undergo breast reduction surgery do so because of the pain caused by having large breasts, especially in the areas around the shoulder, the neck, and the back.
For people who are actively into sports, or exercise regularly – having large breasts can serve as a hindrance. In such situations, many women choose to undergo a breast reduction surgery to allow for a more free-flowing body, unhindered by the pain of having large breasts.
However, in addition to this, there are many cosmetic benefits as well that you should not look past. To begin, your breasts will look more symmetrical and firm, providing you with a more youthful appearance that you can feel confident in showing off.
You will no longer have to worry about going shopping for bras, and then wondering if they will fit or not. Your whole body will look more proportionate, especially with breasts that accentuate your curves.
Any other problems you may have with your breasts, such as the size and shape of the areola among others – all can be sorted out during the surgery – this means, you can both look and feel comfortable in your natural body. Finally, swimsuits will be more fun for you – and you never have to worry about how your body looks in them!
What You Need to Know About Breast Reduction Surgery
If you’re planning on undergoing a breast reduction surgery, the first thing you will need to do is to ensure that you find the right doctor for the operation. You should do your research, find someone with a proven track record of success, and discuss in depth what you want to obtain from the procedure.
The breast reduction procedure essentially entails making an incision, after which excess skin, tissue, and fat are removed – and then the shape is restructured to provide patients with a more youthful, vibrant appearance. Liposuction is another process that can be used to reduce the size of your breasts.
The breast reduction procedure will be performed as an outpatient surgery, meaning you can return home soon after the surgery is performed. During this time, you will need to refrain from working and physical activities so that you can properly rest and relax.
How soon you recover depends on a few factors such as the extent of the surgery, how well you follow your doctor’s post-operative instructions, and how well you take care of yourself after the surgery. It’s important to have a support system available at home to help you out with house chores.
