Do You Believe These Common Breast Reduction Myths?

Do You Believe These Common Breast Reduction Myths?

Most people think of breast augmentations when you mention plastic surgery. But breast reductions are another common procedure, with over 100,000 performed annually in the United States alone.

Having a bust that’s too large for your frame can make life quite uncomfortable. A breast reduction can make it easier to exercise and perform day to day activities.

Here, we’ll give you the facts about breast reduction so that you can make an informed decision about the procedure.

1. You’re out of your mind if you get a breast reduction

Many people wonder why you’d ever bother to get a breast reduction. After all, who could ever want a smaller bust?

But for a lot of women, boobs that are too big for their body can cause a lot of pain. They can make exercise hard, and daily activities can strain your back.

Some women may also not like the attention that their bust is attracting, and would feel more comfortable with a modest sized bust.

Whatever your reasons for wanting a breast augmentation, it’s your body, not anyone else’s.

2. You don’t need surgery for breast reduction

Some women may be able to reduce the size of their breasts through exercise and diet. But you’ll only be able to go so far with these methods.

If you want to make more than minor changes to the size of your breasts, then a breast reduction is your best option.

3. Surgeons who perform breast reductions shouldn’t be trusted

Unfortunately, a few surgeons have been involved in scandals. However, this is not a reflection of all plastic surgeons.

Most plastic surgeons are highly dedicated professionals who put your privacy and comfort first. Dr Klicker works with you before the procedure so that you feel safe in his hands.

4. Breast reductions will keep you from breastfeeding

This used to be true in many cases, as the nipple had to be removed and reattached. But medicine has made huge advancements in recent years.

Now, almost all breast reductions can be performed without affecting your ability to breastfeed. The only cases where you may be at risk of not being able to breastfeed is with very large reductions.

One of the main causes of breastfeeding disruption after surgery? Inexperienced surgeons. Make sure you choose a skilled surgeon to perform the procedure.

5. You’ll have to pay out of pocket

Again, another myth that used to be true. But now, breast reductions are actually covered by most health insurance plans. That means the procedure is more affordable than ever.

6. A breast reduction is identical to a breast lift

This is a common misunderstanding. Many people confuse the two because they are often performed at the same time.

Women who undergo breast reductions may have a breast lift to help tighten up their chest. This is more common on substantial breast reductions, where a large volume of tissue has been removed.

But for many women, a breast lift will be unnecessary. Dr. Klicker will walk you through what he thinks is best for you given your goals for the procedure and your body profile.

7. You’ll be able to pick the exact cup size

A lot of women come into the office with an exact cup size in mind. This makes sense, as it’s the way most women think about breast size.

But plastic surgeons don’t use cup size when thinking about your procedure. Instead, they focus on creating a balanced, natural shape for your breasts, one that fits your unique frame.

That doesn’t mean you won’t have any input when it comes to the size of your new breasts. Dr. Klicker works with you before the procedure to understand what size breasts you want. He then uses his expertise to design a surgery that will give you the results you want in a natural, safe way.

8. Any surgeon can perform a breast reduction

There are a lot of surgeons out there who will perform breast reductions. Unfortunately, most of them don’t have the training and experience needed to get you the natural results you’ll want. And you could put your safety at risk.

Breast reductions require a lot of skill to perform. That’s why you need to choose an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.

Dr. Klicker is an Orange County board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience. He consults with you so you know what to expect from the procedure. And he there for you during the recovery process, should you have any questions or side effects from the procedure.
