Breast Reduction Beverly Hills
Women who are troubled by very large breasts may choose to seek out a plastic surgeon that performs breast reduction surgery in Beverly Hills. Large, heavy breasts can cause trouble with upper back and shoulder pain. Women with macromastia also have trouble finding clothes and bras that fit properly, resulting in shoulder grooving from the bra straps and added discomfort. Gigantomastia (or massive breasts) can cause a sense of embarrassment or insecurity.
Breast reduction surgery has helped a lot of women with these problems in San Diego. By reducing the size of the breast, the weight of the breasts is immediately improved. This results in less weight being transferred to the shoulders and upper back, which leads to improvement in pain and discomfort. It will also be possible to find brassieres that fit better and are more comfortable. Most women are extremely happy after breast reduction surgery because of the immediate functional improvement.
The incisions from a breast reduction are typically described as a lollipop or an anchor incision. With an anchor incision (or T incision), the final scars are located around the areola (pigmented area), a vertical scar, and a scar in the breast crease. With a lollipop incision, the final scars are located around the areola and a vertical scar from the areola to the breast crease. The type of incision is dependent on the size of your breasts and the amount of reduction that is planned. Most women will need an anchor-type breast reduction.
Breast reduction surgery is usually performed as an outpatient surgery in Los Angeles. The surgery usually takes about 3 or 4 hours depending on your size. The recovery is usually pretty quick.
There are a number of techniques to perform a breast reduction. That’s why breast reduction is considered a very artistic surgery.
