Most women who have undergone a Reduction Mammaplasty have improved self-confidence. They also have improvement in their body proportions. Despite the fact that this cosmetic procedure is commonly used on women, men who suffer from gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts, have the possibility to also undergo a reduction mammaplasty.
Women who have experienced the difficulties of the weight from their enlarged breasts, are generally the ones who seek to have this cosmetic procedure performed. There are some physical symptoms that are associated with having oversized breasts. Some of these physical symptoms consist of neck and back pain, deep strap marks from the bra, and a possibility of skin breakdown which can cause irritation and infection. Breast reduction assists these women in restoring their bodies to be proportionate and also restores self confidence.
