The basics about breast enlargement surgery. The more you know about what to expect, the better prepared you are.

Breast Reduction

For women experiencing discomfort caused by large breasts, breast reduction surgery is a viable option for easing that pain. Common discomfort associated with large breasts includes lower back pain, neck pain, poor posture, shoulder pain, and an inability to participate in many physical activities.

Of course, the choice to pursue breast reduction surgery requires careful consideration. You have to first determine if you're a candidate for the procedure, find a surgeon you can trust to handle your operation, and find financing options to fit within you budget. You also have to ask for information on potential side effects and scarring issues.

Breast Reduction Surgery

It's best to wait until you're in your 20s to consider breast reduction surgery. This will allow for your breasts to fully develop before you have your surgery. Additionally, if you plan on having children, you should wait to have your breast reduction surgery until after you've given birth.

During your initial consultation with your surgeon, ask as many questions as you can think of. There are many factors that affect the success of your surgery–age, body type, breast size and shape, and skin conditions. The more information you can acquire from your surgeon, the better prepared you'll be to have a successful surgery.

Breast Reduction Scars

One concern many women have is if there will be any breast reduction scars. Most surgeons use an incision that goes from the areola down to the crease underneath the breast. While everyone recovers differently from this procedure, most women have breast reduction scars from the incisions. However, these scars are typically not visible when wearing a bathing suit or other clothing.

Breast Reduction Cost

The average breast reduction cost ranges between $5000 and $10000. This includes all of the additional fees–surgeon, facility, anesthesia, etc. Prices may vary, but always remember that you get what you pay for. For this reason, you should never try to chase after the lowest price.

The key to a successful breast reduction surgery is finding a surgeon who understands your needs. This will help you feel comfortable, and it will produce results that you'll be happy with for many years to come.
