Large breasts are often associated with the ideal female figure. But in many cases, bigger is not always better. Women with naturally large breasts often live with a great deal of physical discomfort. Large breasts can become heavy and pendulous, causing shoulder and back pain and even poor posture as a result of hunched shoulders. The skin under large breasts can become irritated, and deep indentations are often left by bra straps due to the weight of the breasts. Breast reduction surgery can be used to correct these problems, relieve pain, and improve the overall size, shape, and appearance of the breasts.
If you are considering breast reduction, contact Michigan Plastic Surgery in East Lansing to schedule your initial consultation. During your consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lee H. Colony, you will be able to discuss your options and expectations.
On the day of your surgery, you will be administered anesthesia so that you will be asleep during the procedure. Dr. Colony will make incisions that will allow him to remove excess fat and tissue to reposition and reshape your breasts to your desired specifications. The placement of the incisions depends on your desired outcome and may be placed around the areolas, vertically underneath the areolas, and in the crease under your breasts. Downtime following surgery will be required, and strenuous activity should be kept to a minimum for two weeks. Be sure to follow all post-operative directions to help ensure a safe recovery process.
