Women with larger breasts often struggle with both physical and emotional problems associated with the disproportionate size of their chest. This can turn ordinary day-to-day activities such as working out or getting dressed in the morning into a frustrating and sometimes discouraging situation. A breast reduction surgery with Dr. Victoria Karlinsky-Bellini can help to balance the size of your breasts with your natural figure to alleviate common concerns associated with abnormally large breasts – a condition known as macromastia.
What is breast reduction surgery?
As its name implies, a breast reduction is a cosmetic breast surgery that is performed to reduce the size of a woman’s breasts. This is done by removing excess breast tissue and repositioning the remaining tissue to create a smaller, more proportionate size and a much more pleasing shape of the breasts.
What makes a good candidate for breast reduction surgery?
A breast reduction can be a life-changing procedure for women who are struggling with physical or emotional problems related to their larger sized breasts.
Women with overly large breasts often experience physical discomfort, such as neck, back, or shoulder pain caused by the excessive weight of the breasts. Rashes can also develop beneath the breasts, causing constant pain and discomfort. In addition, regular physical activity and exercise can become difficult and even painful due to the breasts’ larger size. A breast reduction can help to alleviate physical pain while maintaining a natural, feminine appearance.
Many women also struggle with self-consciousness about the look of their breasts and shopping for clothes and bras that fit properly can prove to be very difficult and frustrating. Breast reduction surgery can help to overcome many of these concerns by bringing the breasts to a more harmonious balance with the rest of your body.
Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini recommends breast reduction surgery for any woman experiencing any of these concerns, and who have fully developed breasts. During a private consultation, she will listen thoughtfully to your concerns and will work with you to create a personalized plan for your breast reduction.
What to expect during your breast reduction recovery
Following your breast reduction with Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini, you will be provided with a light surgical bra to provide support while you are healing. It’s important to take it easy during the initial few days of healing. You will need a loved one to drive you home from surgery and provide any necessary assistance with regular day-to-day activities such as cooking and cleaning. Most women are able to return to work 2-5 days after their surgery. Avoid any bending, stretching, lifting, or running for at least 10-14 days.
We want to ensure the safest, most comfortable recovery possible. Dr. Karlinksy-Bellini will provide you with her personal cell number to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have as your body heals from your breast reduction.
