Why Breast Reduction Surgery Has an Exceptionally High Satisfaction Rate

The phrase, “bigger is better,” isn’t always true, especially when it comes to breast size. In addition to the psychological impact that causes embarrassment, extremely large breasts may result in health complications and activity restrictions:

Board-certified cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgeon Matthew J. Lynch, MD, performs breast reduction surgery routinely. He can help you achieve increased self-confidence and feel proud instead of embarrassed about your appearance. 

The breast reduction consultation 

The technical term for breast reduction is mammaplasty. At the consultation, Dr. Lynch asks you about your goals for the surgery. What size do you want your breasts to be? The conversation includes any emotional issues you may have experienced because of your breast size as well as physical discomfort you have. He reviews your medical history to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure. 

Dr. Lynch can show you before and after photos of other breast reduction surgeries he has performed. After taking photos and measuring your breasts, he explains the procedure. Dr. Lynch operates to create a breast size more proportionate to your body, which helps eliminate the discomfort caused by excessively large breasts. 

If your breasts are causing physical pain, the surgery may be covered by insurance. You’ll need to check with your insurance company to determine expenses.

The following factors make you a good candidate for mammaplasty. You should: 

If you haven’t had children and think you may want them some day or if you’re significantly overweight and plan on losing the extra weight, you should postpone this surgery. 

Breast reduction surgery 

You’re under general anesthesia for the procedure. Your breast reduction is customized to your  individual needs. Your surgery should take between three to five hours and, in most cases, you can go home the same day.

Dr. Lynch makes an incision downward from your nipple. He removes your excess tissue, skin, and fat and improves the contour of your breast. He may need to place your nipple in a higher position than it was originally to align with the amount of tissue that has been removed.  

You’ll be out of work for one to two weeks. You’ll need to avoid strenuous activity for at least two weeks or more while you heal. Dr. Lynch provides written postop instructions. 

More than 95 percent of patients are very happy with the results of their breast reduction surgery. After all, this is something you’ve likely wanted to do for a long time. Now you’ve done it. You can finally be pleased instead of embarrassed about your appearance. You can expect immediate results that only improve in the months to come as your swelling subsides.
