Kelowna Breast Reduction: The Problem with Overly Large Breasts

Overview: Having naturally large breasts might seem like a blessing for some women, but for many, it results in unwanted physical and emotional stress. Breast reduction mammoplasties have become a popular solution and the results are so positive that the only regret women have is that they didn't do it sooner. Read the blog below for more information about breast reduction surgery.

Reasons for Breast Reduction

Women with overly large breasts tend to have physical strains with everyday activities and breast reduction surgery can alleviate issues like back pain. Heavy breasted women can also develop poor posture over time. Aging combined with gravity will eventually make larger breasts sag, and this causes them to lose shape, which can affect a woman’s self-esteem. Many women also tend to feel self-conscious when their breasts are too large in proportion to their bodies. Additionally, clothing can be an issue, and larger breasts sometimes deter women from wearing desirable clothing like tank tops, sundresses or strapless dresses.

Breast Reduction Mammoplasties Procedure

Breast reduction mammoplasties remove the excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to reduce the size and improve the shape of the breast. The incision is often placed around the areola, vertically along the inframammary fold (where the breast connects to the chest) and the procedure is completed in 2-3 hours. Breast reduction surgery does require general anesthesia and patients return home on the same day.

Recovery Period

Dr. Peterson’s first priority is patient care, both before and after any plastic surgery procedure. He will advise patients on all post-procedure care like the following:

  • How to keep the incision site clean (dressings)
  • Prescribe medication for any discomfort
  • Wearing a support bra to minimize swelling
  • Awareness that clothes will not fit the way they used to

A major concern that many women have with any kind of surgery centres on possible scaring. The advancements in the plastic surgery discipline and the experience of surgeons like Dr. Peterson have made any scars left from breast reduction mammoplasties minimal and they will fade over time.

The Bottom Line: Women that have breast reduction mammoplasties are extremely pleased with the results of the procedure. The benefits of breast reduction surgery include: breasts that are in proportion with their body frame, breasts with a rounder shape and a restored youthful look. Patients no longer endure physical ailments like back or neck pain and they can enjoy activities such as running and exercising. Emotional benefits include a higher degree of self-confidence and self-esteem.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
