The 4 Things You Need to Know About Breast Reductions
Do you suffer from overdeveloped, painful breasts? You’re not alone. In 2019, over 46,000 patients underwent a breast reduction for aesthetic purposes while over 60,000 underwent a breast reduction for reconstructive purposes. Thousands of women suffer from breasts that are too large and end up making everyday life difficult. If you’re ready to make a change and reduce the size of your breasts, a breast reduction may be right for you.
4 things you need to know before your breast reduction
- It can reduce back and neck pain– Many women suffer from back or neck pain due to their large breasts. This procedure can help reduce or remove the pain you’ve been dealing with and help you lead a more active and comfortable lifestyle.
- Your insurance may cover the cost of the procedure– Some patients are able to have their breast reduction costs covered, or partially covered, if the procedure is completed for health reasons.
- Recovery is typically 1-2 weeks– With a relatively short recovery time, you can be back to normal in no time.
- There is a difference between a reduction and a lift– Many patients ask about the difference between a reduction and a lift. If you’re in need of perkier breasts, a lift may do the trick whereas if your breasts are too large a reduction is likely the best option. In some cases, we’ve combined the two to achieve the patient’s desired results.
