What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure used to reduce the size of a woman‘s breasts. This procedure is typically performed to improve the physical appearance of the breasts, reduce the amount of back, neck, and shoulder pain associated with large breasts, and improve the ability to participate in physical activities. The surgery involves removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts and then shaping the remaining breast tissue.

The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours to complete. During the surgery, the plastic surgeon will make incisions around the breasts and then remove excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin. Dr Lacey may also reposition the nipple and areola, if necessary. After the surgery, the breasts are typically smaller and firmer, with improved contours and better symmetry.


The Benefits of an Ottawa Breast Reduction

Breast reduction Ottawa is a popular procedure that can enhance the quality of life for many women, and even men, who struggle with overly large breasts. Those who are considering the surgery should understand the many benefits that it can provide.

First, breast reduction surgery can alleviate physical symptoms and improve posture. Many women find that their breasts are so large that they cause back and neck pain, as well as shoulder indentations due to the weight of the breasts. By having the surgery, the breasts are reduced to a manageable size and the associated pain is often relieved.

Second, many women who have breast reduction surgery also report improved selfconfidence. Large breasts can sometimes draw unwanted attention, making women feel uncomfortable or selfconscious. Breast reduction surgery can help to reduce the size of the breasts and give women a more proportionate figure, which can make them feel more confident in their own skin.

Third, breast reduction can also improve the ability to exercise and engage in physical activities. Women with large breasts can find it difficult to exercise due to the weight of their breasts, as well as the discomfort that comes with it. Reducing the size of the breasts can make it easier for them to engage in physical activities without the same kind of discomfort or restraint.

Finally, breast reduction can also reduce the risk of developing skin irritation or infections. Many women with large breasts suffer from skin irritation due to the rubbing of the breasts against the skin. By reducing the size of the breasts, this issue can be significantly reduced or even eliminated altogether.

Overall, breast reduction surgery can provide many benefits for those who are considering it. Not only can it help to alleviate physical symptoms and improve posture, but it can also provide improved selfconfidence and make it easier to engage in physical activities.
