All You Need To Know About Breast Reduction

by

Your breast size is based on two factors: genealogy and body fat v. breast tissue. Both can contribute to having large breasts, even just as a young girl is approaching puberty. Sometimes, a breast reduction procedure is the only option.

Large breasts can cause a multitude of issues. They can cause physical wear on your shoulders and back, leading to back pain. It is also common for a rash to form on the skin beneath the breasts, as it is extremely difficult to keep this area dry.

There can also be a psychological effect. Women can perceive themselves as heavier than they actually are solely from the size of their breasts.

For the reasons listed above, breast reduction surgery is usually a medical issue rather than a cosmetic one. This being the case, although a very tedious task, patients can seek financial aid from their insurance carriers to help cover the cost of the surgery. A doctor that is familiar with this surgery should know the best way to present the case to the insurance company.

Have you been researching breast reduction surgery? The best way to determine what procedure is best for you is to schedule a personal consultation with a board certified surgeon. As with any surgery, there are risks associated with breast reduction. Your doctor will be able to assess your medical background and present the best surgical options moving forward.
