The last thing you probably pictured yourself doing was getting smaller breasts. After all, people pay thousands of dollars to get larger breasts all of the time. However, overly large breasts can cause problems like back pain, rib pain, and slouching. Additionally, overly large breasts can sometimes just get in the way, making things like working out to become more difficult. If you have large breasts and are considering getting a breast reduction, you may have heard some of the myths listed below. Read on to learn more.
- It’s Permanent
Although rare, some women’s breasts do grow back after getting a breast reduction. With factors like excessive weight gain and hormones, it’s really hard to permanently prevent a woman’s breasts from growing back all the way. To help prevent your breasts from coming back, try to regulate your hormones during menopause and avoid gaining weight.
- They’ll Be Too Small
One of the biggest hesitations that women have with getting a breast reduction is that they will be too small. However, during your consultation with Dr. Thomas F. Crais, you can discuss what size you would like and the overall outcome you are hoping to get. If you don’t want to have small breasts, you don’t have to.
- You Can’t Breastfeed Afterwards
There’s a common myth that no matter what type of breast surgery you undergo, you won’t be able to breastfeed afterwards. Although some mothers have a hard time breastfeeding after an augmentation, that certainly won’t be the case following a breast reduction. In fact, you shouldn’t have any problems breastfeeding at all.
Getting a breast reduction can help alleviate any back pain or discomfort that you are experiencing. During your surgery, Dr. Thomas F. Crais will remove excess breast tissue and fat to help give you the size of breasts that you desire. To learn more about this surgical procedure and more, contact Dr. Thomas F.
