Introduction to Breast Reduction Surgery
A woman’s breast size is determined by hormones, genes, weight and body frame. For the majority of women, the size of the breasts are proportionate to the body. Unfortunately, though, for some women, the breasts can appear very large in proportion to the body.
Men, too, can be unhappy with the size of their breasts. A male breast reduction is called ‘gynaecomastia’.
A female breast reduction is an option for women who are unhappy with the size, shape, weight etc of their breasts whether for cosmetic reasons or health reasons. Some women may feel that their breasts are generally too large or perhaps they have grown to be asymmetrical and so seek this type of procedure to correct these issues. In other cases, the size of a woman’s breasts could have implications on their health and so a breast reduction is needed in order to reduce further issues. For example, overly large breasts can be extremely heavy and cause pain in the back and some women are unable to sleep on their back as the size of their breasts affect their breathing. Obviously, the size of your breasts can also change with your weight and so the size of them can increase even after surgery, and is something people seeking surgery should consider.
Manchester surgeon Mr Andrea Marando’s breast reduction procedure will remove fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts (thus making them smaller, lighter, and firmer). Mr Marando can also reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple). The goal is to give the woman smaller, better shaped breasts that are in proportion with the rest of her body.
