Everybody is beautiful. That’s something we believe down to the core of our beings here at the offices of Scottsdale board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard J. Brown. Each day we have the pleasure of working with patients who are intelligent, caring, and accomplished. They’re drop-dead gorgeous, both inside and out.
But not everyone sees it that way.
The thing is, you can be perfectly happy with yourself as a person and still feel out of place in your own skin. Just because you are successful and intelligent and have a happy, loving family doesn’t mean you’ll feel beautiful. Sometimes in spite of all your accomplishments, you simply don’t feel whole.
When people think of breast reductions, they often think of loss. “Reduction” makes it sound like something is being taken away. The truth is that breast reduction surgery does the exact opposite: The surgery adds a tremendous amount of freedom, comfort and options to your life by reducing the size of your breasts. It’s not a question of what you’ll lose: It’s all about what you’ll be gaining after your surgery.
Breast reductions can be life-changing procedures in the best possible way. At the office of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard J. Brown, we’ve seen firsthand just how much it can enhance the lives of our patients. If you’re wondering what you can gain from getting a reduction, read on to see what you can look forward.
Few changes are as fulfilling, meaningful and powerful as giving birth to a child. It’s a great big change to your life, to your family and to the world itself.
But it also means a bunch of small changes for your body, as well. You may end up with more weight, you may get stretchmarks, or your breasts may change shape or lose volume. You feel grateful for the big change you’ve brought into the world but wishing you still had the body you had before it happened.
But like the old saying goes: change is good. Mothers who want to get back in touch with the active bodies they had before pregnancy may not have access to a time machine, but they have the next best thing available to them: a mommy makeover! A series of surgical procedures, mommy makeovers use a combination of tummy tucks, liposuction and breast surgeries to restore mothers back to their pre-childbirth bodies.
You’ve given it some time, you’ve weighed your options and decided that getting a breast reduction is right for you. Perhaps you’re suffering from constant back and neck pain or feel self-conscious about the size of your breasts. Maybe you’re tired of not finding any clothes that fit you. Regardless of why you’re getting a reduction, the important thing is that you’re taking the big step to better your life by letting go of your big bust.
Like all major surgeries, going into it without knowing what you’re getting into can be intimidating and maybe even frightening. At the office of board-certified plastic surgeon Richard J. Brown we think it’s pivotal that our patients feel informed and educated before getting work done. Here are five things you should know before getting a breast reduction.
Bigger isn’t always better. Women who have larger breasts may have to deal with a variety of issues and complications that their less-endowed peers don’t have to worry about. Larger breasts can put strain on the back, neck and shoulders. They can make it harder to play sports and engage in other athletic activities. And they can draw unwanted attention.
For women who are struggling with these issues, or who think they would look better with a smaller bust, breast reduction surgery can be the answer to their prayers. Breast reductions remove excess tissue and reshape the entire breast into something that is smaller and symmetrical. Unfortunately, many women are hesitant to look into the surgery because of all the myths about breast reductions and misconceptions that surround it.
Here at the offices of Dr. Richard J. Brown, board certified plastic surgeon, we often hear concerns from patients considering an arm lift that the resulting scar may be very prominent.
The short answer: Yes. Like all surgeries, an arm lift will result in scarring to some extent. However, the degree of scarring depends on each patient's genetic makeup and predisposition to scarring, and there are methods of minimizing your arm lift scar following your surgery.
