In 2017, there was an 11% increase in breast reduction surgeries from the previous year. This statistic not only highlights the fact that the procedure is becoming more and more accepted in society, but also that it’s become a viable option for women with large breasts.
Perhaps you’ve always wanted to get a breast reduction, but are sceptical as to whether or not it would be worth the money, time, and effort? While your scepticism is valid, the fact of the matter is that breast reduction surgery can be hugely beneficial.
Wondering what exactly this means? Here are the top benefits of breast reduction in Sydney.
The benefits of reducing your breasts can be both physical and psychological. Their exact impact on you is dependent on the state of your mind and body.
Breast reduction surgery:
Many women with larger-than-average breasts suffer from chronic backache, shoulder ache, and neck ache. This is especially true if they have small frames or weak core muscles. Their breasts essentially act as weights which drag down the fronts of their bodies, causing poor posture over prolonged periods of time.
By removing some of the weight from the breasts of these women, they are offered instant relief from their chronic pain. They will not only find it easier to practice good posture, but they will also feel lighter on their feet. In essence, they will feel much less strain on their bodies.
Women with big breasts know: sports and exercise don’t come easy. It can be very difficult to run, swing a golf club, or lift weights when you have exceedingly large mounds of flesh and fat on your chest.
If you’re an avid exerciser and you have large breasts, you could almost certainly enhance your exercise time by receiving a breast reduction surgery. Not only will the removal of breast tissue enhance the mechanical operation of your body, but it will also make your body lighter, allowing you to walk and run with greater speed.
Some women with large breasts suffer from extreme chafing in the area directly under their breasts. This comes as a result of their breasts rubbing back and forth throughout the day. In some cases, it can be extremely painful.
Do you suffer from this problem? If so, reducing the size of your breasts could be exactly what you need. The smaller your breasts are, the less they will rub against your skin, and the less chafing they will cause.
Another benefit of breast reduction surgery is that it will allow for easier breathing. Not only will it reduce sweat and heat buildup in the chest area, but it will also allow you to physically breathe with more ease.
Studies show that the larger your breasts are, the more they will restrict your breathing. This is because they weigh down on the diaphragm, never allowing it to fully expand.
So, if you have large breasts, and you suffer from breathing problems, you can largely do away with those breathing problems by having the size of your breasts reduced.
While it’s not true of all women with large breasts, a good deal of large-breasted women feel ashamed or humiliated by the size of their breasts. They will cover them up and, in extreme cases, even avoid going to social functions in order to avoid the looks of friends and strangers.
Women such as these need breast reductions perhaps more than anyone else. This one procedure can transform their psyches, helping them to feel more comfortable in their skin.
While aesthetic preferences are certainly subjective, many women undergo breast reductions simply because they want to enhance their aesthetics. They don’t like that their large breasts dominate the entirety of their bodies, and undergo surgery so as to take some of the focus off of their breasts.
There’s nothing wrong with undergoing a breast surgery solely for aesthetic purposes. If it makes you feel better about yourself, it’s a wise choice.
Now that you understand the benefits of breast reduction surgery, perhaps you’re curious as to what exactly it entails? While we can’t give you a detailed explanation in this blog post, we can, at the very least, provide you with a summary.
There are two types of breast reduction surgeries: Inverted-T breast reduction and vertical breast reduction.
Inverted T breast reduction includes making three incisions in the breast, one under the breast, one vertical on the areola, and one on the side of the breast. This surgery allows for the greatest amount of shaping and is best used in cases where large reductions must be made.
Vertical breast reduction is best used for cases when only small reductions are needed. This procedure includes two incisions on the breasts and results in only very minimal scarring.
Both of these surgeries involve the removal of fat tissue from the breast. However, an inverted T breast reduction allows for more fat tissue removal than does a vertical reduction.
In Australia, you can expect to pay around $13,000 in total for a breast reduction surgery. This includes all of the fees associated with the procedure, including surgeon fees, assistant surgeon fees, and anaesthetist fees.
However, there’s a possibility that your health insurance will cover at least some of the cost. If the surgery is deemed medically necessary, it could be covered.
