A few hundred thousand women undergo a breast augmentation procedure every year to increase their cup size. However, women with very large or disproportionate breasts often look for ways to remedy the physical pain or discomfort caused by their already large breasts. If you feel self-conscious about having large breasts, you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction.
Dr. Benien often recommends breast reduction surgery in Oklahoma City to patients who are suffering from pain and discomfort caused by pendulous breasts, and for those who are experiencing some psychological distress about their appearance. A breast enhancement procedure — whether it is performed to increase or decrease the size of the breasts — can create a more proportionate figure and also offers many psychological benefits.
How Can a Breast Reduction in Oklahoma City Help Me?
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) published results of a study in their August 2013 issue of its official medical journal, which found that breast reduction surgery played a significant role in the improvement of a patient’s well-being. The patients surveyed reported increased satisfaction about their appearance, and improvements in both sexual and physical well-being after surgery.
You may be a good candidate for an Oklahoma City breast reduction procedure if you:
- Have very large or pendulous breasts that sag and droop
- Experience pain and discomfort around the back, shoulders, and neck because of extra weight in front
- Get infections or have irritated skin around the breast crease
- Are extremely self-conscious about your body because of large breasts
- Want to participate in more physical activities without discomfort
- Want to improve your quality of life
Procedures to Complement a Breast Reduction
If you have excess fat around the armpit area and want to enhance the contours of your body, Dr. Benien may recommend a simple liposuction procedure around the armpits to remove excess fatty tissue. This can be performed through the same incisions made for breast reduction surgery in Oklahoma City so no additional incisions will be necessary. Removing excess fat around the armpits or upper back can help to create a contoured appearance and further improve your appearance.
If you think you may be a candidate for a breast enhancement procedure, schedule your breast reduction consultation with OKC cosmetic surgeon Dr. Benien today.
