Breast Reduction: Give Yourself Permission
Just like many of the men we work with who are thinking about man boob surgery, many women we talk to who consider breast reduction in New York have never really pictured themselves as the cosmetic surgery “type.” Having performed plastic surgery in Manhattan for people of all kinds for 30 years, we don’t really feel there’s a cosmetic surgery “type.” But if you generally believe people should be acceptable just as they are, we get it. Many of our patients feel that way too, yet they know their lives would be enhanced with that bump removed from their nose or their saggy, post-pregnancy belly tightened back up.
If you’re the “type” who sees women with augmented rear ends and unnaturally oversized breasts and think, “why in the world,” well, we understand that too and we generally agree. It’s just that we believe every man and woman deserves to live life unsaddled by a physical issue, if it can be corrected safely.
Here are the benefits available to you through breast reduction:
Simple Physical Health
If you choose to have breast reduction in New York with us, we will literally lift a weight off your shoulders. You will feel lighter and your posture may straighten. Neck and backaches should dissipate, as will the grooves on your shoulders worn by your bra straps. If your large breasts caused skin irritation underneath, you should be able to get that under control.
In fact, if you’ve had a few physical issues and have sought medical help, you may be able to convince your insurance company to cover the cost of surgery. It’s not always easy, but does work for some. We can’t do it for you, but we can advise.
Potential Fitness Benefits
Many women and men who undergo breast reduction surgery pursue a new fitness regimen after healing. Whether they weren’t able to do so before due to physical discomfort or embarrassment or both, it’s not unusual for our patients to join a gym or find other ways to step up their efforts toward better health. Many are inspired to lose weight too.
Psychological Well Being
Our New York breast reduction patients, male and female, express relief and even joy to us when they come in for post-op follow up appointments. It’s safe to say that the psychological gains they realize after surgery are at least as significant as the physical benefits.
Just imagine what it would be like to catch a glimpse of your profile in a mirror when you no longer look top heavy and slumped over. Can you see yourself shopping for form fitting tops and sleek fitness gear? It’s no wonder breast reduction surgery is rated 97% “worth it” by women on RealSelf, who routinely comment “best decision I ever made.”
A recent study in Australia confirmed benefits beyond the physical for breast reduction patients. Researchers studied post-op patients who graded themselves on four key aspects of life before and after surgery: physical well-being, satisfaction with breasts, psychosocial health and sexual well-being. The team found that the subjects scored lower than average women on the four measures before surgery, and improved in each category afterward. Not only that, the study group scored higher than average in quality of life after surgery.
A Few Final Thoughts
It’s certainly not our habit to push people to have cosmetic surgery. With three decades of successful plastic surgery in Manhattan under our belt, we’re not frantically trying to drum up business. We are in practice to help people achieve more satisfaction in life, and breast reduction surgery has the power to do just that. That’s the reason women who choose breast reduction in New York with us, as well as guys who undergo man boob surgery, are some of our favorite patients. It’s a privilege to truly change their lives.
