Patient satisfaction is the measure of success when it comes to cosmetic surgery. Enjoyment of life, satisfaction and self-esteem after their physical appearance has been surgically improved is what makes people happy after a cosmetic surgical procedure. According to a news report published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, most plastic surgeons would report that women who have breast reduction surgery are among the happiest patients. Let’s see why this is so.
Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty offers not only aesthetic benefits but physical and emotional benefits too. Looking at the physical benefits, patients who come in for their post-operative evaluation, report relief from back and neck pain as soon as the day after the procedure. Overly large breasts can cause a lot of discomfort which cannot be resolved with dietary changes, exercise or other non-surgical options. Issues that large breasts can cause include chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain, stiff neck, chest wall pain, headache, poor posture, breathing difficulties, sleep disturbances, and rashes under and between the breasts, and painful brasserie strap grooving. Reduction mammoplasty provides relief from all these conditions.
More than physical, the embarrassment due to overly sized breasts can be emotionally hurtful at times. Studies have reported that the procedure offers psychological benefits, such as reduced depression and anxiety and improved self-esteem. Women with big breasts usually find it difficult to find clothes that fit well. They may also have to put up with comments about their appearance, which can depressing and demeaning, and affect their self-esteem. Following surgery to reduce breast size, women experience improvement in quality of life as they would find it easier and more comfortable to exercise and participate in other physical activities. It would no longer be difficult to the right size of clothing and their dresses would fit better.
Reduction mammoplasty involves removing excess tissue and skin in the area and reshaping the breasts. It may also involve restoring the entire nipple and areola complex to the normal position. The end result would be smaller, lighter and firmer breasts. Patients can freely discuss the change they need in the breast size, and expert plastic surgeons would do their best to provide them with an attractive bust line that enhances their overall appearance.
Teens are a special category of patients who take up this procedure. Because of the additional physical exertion and stress on their bodies, they may have neck and back pain at a much younger age. The large size of their breasts may make it difficult for them to engage in physical activities and would be a hindrance to those involved in sports. When teens take up this cosmetic surgery, the results change their lives in very a positive way.
