In recent years, breast reduction cosmetic surgery procedure has become more popular among different age groups of women. It is possible to restore youthful looking and well proportioned breasts with this surgery for women who are bothered by disproportionately large breasts. Candidates typically improve their self-esteem and have an enhanced confidence due to more attractive bust line.
Breast reduction also offers physical benefits in terms of relief from strain and discomfort that is usually associated with heavier breasts. Women can perform any types of sports activities, exercise and bending movements, and wear the clothes of their choice.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides breast reduction to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding locations.
Any woman who is unhappy with the appearance of oversized, pendulous breasts or feel restricted in performing certain types of activities and daily chores, or is unable to wear clothes of choice, may be a suitable candidate for breast reduction cosmetic surgery. Many women also seek this surgery to get permanent relief from pain in the shoulders, neck or back caused due to overly large breasts, or rashes and skin irritation in the breast crease.
One of the important considerations while determining candidacy will be the patient’s age. The surgeon will consider whether her breast development is completed before recommending breast reduction. However, an exception to this rule may be when the patient is suffering from severe or persistent pain or debilitation due to oversized breasts.
The candidate should not be having any cancerous or pre-cancerous breast tissue prior to breast reduction surgery. If required, the surgeon may order specialized mammograms in some cases. A good candidate will ideally not have any future plans to breastfeed because the surgery will take out some of the key milk ducts that are connected to the nipples. Judicious and well-practiced plastic surgeon Dr. Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas for breast reduction.
Standard Breast Reduction Candidates
Standard breast reduction, involving an anchor pattern technique, is more appropriate for women with excessively large breasts. Women with dense breast tissue, more glandular tissue than fat, and those who have not yet reached their menopause may also make stellar candidates for standard breast reduction surgery.
Vertical Incision Candidates
Women with moderate to large sizes breasts, but not too oversized or pendulous in character, may be candidates for vertical incision breast reduction technique. Breast reduction in these women may be performed to satisfy their aesthetic needs or to help improve the pain condition and movement limitations arising due to large breasts.
Fat Tissue Reduction Candidates
In some women, the amount of glandular tissue may be minimal, but the amount of fat tissue may be fairly high. These candidates would be more suited for scar-less breast reduction technique. This procedure will only involve liposuction surgery to remove unwanted fatty tissue deposits. This procedure is less invasive and the recovery will faster and simpler than with other breast reduction techniques.
