Breast Reduction procedures have one of the highest satisfaction rates in plastic surgery. Unlike breast enlargement, which is done for cosmetic purposes, breast reduction is often a medically necessary procedure, covered by insurance, to help reduce back pain, neck pain, rashes and skin irritations caused by oversized breasts. Large breasts make it difficult for women to exercise and often invite unwanted attention, stares and rude comments. Breast reduction is often combined with a tummy tuck, and is performed in a hospital or out-patient surgery center. Women who have breast reduction usually return to work in about a week, and the swelling and bruising take 2-4 weeks to improve.
In national surveys: The breast reduction procedure routinely produces one of the highest satisfaction rates in all of plastic surgery. This is because the purpose of the procedure is not purely cosmetic; most women think of it as a medically necessary procedure (covered by insurance). Oversized breasts are often painful, cause back and neck pain, and cause rashes and skin irritations. They also make it difficult to exercise comfortably; and the stares, the unwelcome attention, and the rude comments are often difficult to bear. These are just a few reasons why women with oversized breasts choose breast reduction surgery for help.
