Breast Reduction: What to expect?
Breast reduction is an outpatient procedure performed to relieve symptoms associated with large breast. Breast reduction removes a portion of the breast tissue and skin from the breast which reshapes, lifts, and reduces the size of the breasts. The result is improved proportions of your breast and body. Typically, the dark area around your nipple is made smaller as well. After surgery, you may feel sore for 2 to 3 weeks. You also may feel pulling or stretching in your breast area. Although you may need pain medicine for a week or two, you can expect to feel better and stronger each day.
Is a breast reduction a cosmetic procedure?
Overly large breasts can cause some women to have both health and emotional problems. Breast reduction surgery is considered reconstructive, not cosmetic surgery and can be covered under some insurance plans.
