Patients who have heavy, enlarged breasts can experience debilitating pain throughout their body. Not only is this pain experienced in the breasts, but it is also present in the neck, shoulders, and back, which must manage more weight than they are supposed to. Even the simplest of tasks can prove to be extremely challenging.
Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical treatment that can remove excess skin and tissue from the breasts to reduce breast size, increase comfort, and cosmetically reshape the breasts to a more ideal figure. Deigni Plastic Surgery can help identify if you are a breast reduction candidate in Houston.
Macromastia is the scientific term for a condition that produces overlarge breasts. If you have macromastia, you may find yourself excessively tired or hunched over due to the strain it puts on your shoulders and back. This can affect your body proportions and make you self-conscious about wearing form-fitting shirts or swimsuits. If you experience any of these conditions, you might be a candidate for a breast reduction in Houston.
This procedure can be absolutely life changing. You will experience a dramatic reduction in pain, along with drastic improvement in comfort that will affect your entire quality of life. Women are overwhelmingly satisfied once they have gotten this procedure.
There are certain requirements you need to fulfil to be an excellent candidate for surgery of any kind – and breast reduction is no different. To be the right candidate for a breast reduction procedure, you should have a healthy body weight and BMI. You should have no active infections, untreated cancer, or any type of serious chronic illnesses.
The first step is to book an initial consultation with Dr. Deigni. To ensure that you are the right candidate for a breast reduction in Houston, you will need to provide a complete and accurate medical history. During this appointment, you will be required to discuss every medical issue you have so our medical team can establish whether a breast reduction operation is right for you.
If you are a strong candidate, we can begin to discuss the surgical plan, as well as make several recommendations to improve your outcomes. You may be required to change or eliminate certain lifestyle habits, such as smoking, to ensure a smoother surgery. You may also be required to stop using certain medications such as blood thinners to avoid the risk of complications. Keep in mind that the recovery period for a breast reduction can take several weeks, during which you may not be able to perform your usual daily activities. Be prepared to schedule a restful downtime, including time off work. If you have small children, you will need some additional help in caring for them while you recover.
