Breast Reduction – (Reduction Mammaplasty) in Long Beach CA
Breast Reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with large breasts. Excessively large sagging breasts can be uncomfortable, and distracting to a woman’s appearance. Additionally, large breasts can cause physical discomfort as well as medical problems for many women. By removing the excess tissue, this eliminates sagging and creates better overall breast symmetry. For some patients the nipple may be repositioned and or reduced as well.
Breast Reduction surgery may also help improve one’s self-image and self-confidence, posture, as well as the ability to participate in physical activities that they were once unable to. Breast Reduction patients are among the happiest of breast surgery patients as they have been relieved of breasts that are too heavy, give them neck and shoulder pain, limit physical activity, and are difficult to fit into bras and clothes for breasts that are lighter with improved shape. Depending upon the amount of weight that is to be removed from the breasts, this surgery may be covered by insurance.
