Options for Losing Breast Weight :
Breast Reduction Mammaplasty
If you're considering breast reduction:
Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight-from back and neck pain and skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. Bra straps may leave indentations in their shoulders. And unusually large breasts can make a woman-or a teenage girl-feel extremely self-conscious. More Info...
Heavy breasts can lead to physical discomfort, a variety of medical problems and extreme self-consciousness.. The shoulders have been scarred and hyper pigmented (made darker) from the trauma from the tight bra straps. In this case there was also severe skin irritation of the skin under the breasts in the creases. Although this patient was over weight, loss of weight would not have corrected this problem. The excessive breast weight has dragged the tissues too far. Cooper's suspensor ligaments that normally hold the breast glands in place have stretched beyond recovery.
Breast reduction, technically known as reduction Mammaplasty, is designed for such women. The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to give the woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body.
If you're considering breast reduction, this will give you a basic understanding of the procedure when it can help, how it's performed, and what results you can expect. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances.
The best candidates for breast reduction
Breast reduction is usually performed for physical relief rather than simply cosmetic improvement. Most women who have the surgery are troubled by very large, sagging breasts that restrict their activities and cause them physical discomfort.
In most cases, breast reduction isn't performed until a woman's breasts are fully developed; however, it can be done earlier if large breasts are causing serious physical discomfort. The best candidates are those who are mature enough to fully understand the procedure and have realistic expectations about the results. Breast reduction is not recommended for women who intend to breast-feed.
Breast reduction is best after weight loss when possible. Surgical sculpture is better as a refinement tool. Weight loss after reduction can result in loss of mass in the breasts and drooping. Some patients are not able to loose weight. Even massive weight loss will rarely reduce massive breasts enough for relief.
