Breast Reduction

Have you ever seen someone who had breast enhancement and wondered. “What on earth was she thinking?” Unlike most celebrities who can minimize or maximize their cup size without batting an eye, having large breasts and dealing with unwanted, oftentimes embarrassing attention is difficult for many women.

Having large breasts can do more than solicit unwanted attention. They can also be painful. If you are struggling physically or emotionally because of your cup size, breast reduction may be the answer for you.

What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Reduction Mammoplasty, also known as breast reduction, is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat, skin and tissue from your breasts. If you have large breasts and live or work in Monmouth County, New Jersey, you may consider having breast reduction to reduce painful back symptoms or achieve breasts that are more proportionate to your body frame. Breast reduction can also boost your self-confidence and your ability to actively participate in various physical activities that were previously off limits.

Reasons To Consider Breast Reduction

In addition to aesthetics, there are many reasons why someone should consider breast reduction, which include:

  • Reduce or eliminate chronic back, neck and shoulder pain caused by large breasts
  • Chronic skin irritation and rash underneath the breats
  • Restricted physical activity due to embarrassment
  • Nerve pain
  • Low self-esteem
  • Difficulty finding clothes that fit well

  • Morbid obesity
  • Currently a smoker
  • Underlying history of or current medication condition such as heart disease or diabetes

Types of Breast Reduction

Inverted T Breast Reduction

Interestingly, many patients think that a breast reduction is simply the opposite of breast augmentation. The procedure are quite different, and there are number of options to both. One method of breast reduction involves removing breast tissue and excess skin. Depending on preference and consultation, your doctor may recommend either an inverted breast reduction or a vertical approach.

During an inverted T Breast Reduction, the surgeon makes three incisions: one vertical, one along the underside of your breast and one along the edge of the areola. This type of reduction allows for the best aesthetic result when it comes to reshaping and lifting.

Vertical Approach

Vertical breast reduction involves two incisions, one from the bottom of your areola to the crease just beneath the breast with the other around the edge of the areola.

Breast reduction is known to have one of the highest rates of satisfaction among patients. The difference in patient’s lives before and after the procedure is oftentimes extraordinary. From restored self-confidence to being able to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle, the benefits outweigh the risks.
