Annapolis Breast Reduction
Too many women, including those who liven the Annapolis area, know the discomfort and inconvenience of breasts that are too large for their frame. The secret to beauty is symmetry, and overly large breasts make a body asymmetrical and unbalanced. Bra straps dig into shoulders, necks and backs hurt, and nice, flattering clothes are hard to come by. The woman’s self-esteem may be affected as well. Our surgeons and staff at Plastic Surgery Specialists are here to help with Annapolis breast reduction surgery.
Breast Reduction Candidates
Before breast reduction surgery, a client will have a consultation with one of our board certified cosmetic surgeons here at Plastic Surgery Specialists. The surgeon will listen to her goals when it comes to the surgery, answer her questions, and respond honestly to any fears she may have. It is a good idea for a client to write down questions and concerns and bring them to the consultation so she doesn’t forget them.
Our surgeons will take the patient’s medical history and ask what sorts of medications and supplements she takes. They’ll ask about her alcohol consumption and whether she smokes. If she does smoke, she needs to quit at least two weeks before the surgery, for smoking interferes with healing. If she’s deemed a good candidate, our doctor will take measurements and photos, and discusses how much breast tissue needs to be removed. They might give the client a breast exam and schedule a mammogram to make sure all is well.
A good candidate is a premenopausal woman whose breasts have stopped growing, whose breasts are very dense, who is in good mental and physical health and has realistic expectations when it comes to the surgery.
