If you’re thinking about getting a breast reduction, you probably have a few questions. Read up on these breast reduction facts to help you get an idea of what you can expect before and after your procedure.
Breast Reduction Is Possible for Virtually Any Breast Size
Contrary to popular belief, breast reduction isn’t only for women who have always had very large breasts. Women with many different natural breast sizes could benefit from a reduction if they have back pain or are having trouble exercising or performing other activities because of their breasts.
Breast Reduction and Breast Lifts Are BFFs
Virtually all breast reduction procedures include a breast lift. While breast reduction removes excess tissue, a breast lift restores the breasts to a higher position on your chest wall, creating a firmer and more youthful look and feel.
Don’t Hyper-Focus on Cup Size
Bra cup sizes vary by the brand and style of the garment, so they’re not a very accurate measurement to go by. Instead, focus more on shape and overall aesthetic in relation to the rest of your curves.
Bring a photo or two of your ideal breasts to your consultation. Try to find pictures of women with similar body type as yours.
Scars Are Easily Hidden
A skilled plastic surgeon can carefully place incisions so that the resulting scars can be easily hidden under a bra or bikini top. Talk to your plastic surgeon about incision placement options during your consultation to give you a better idea of where and what your scars might look like.
