26 Jan The Demand for Breast Reduction Mammoplasty
Breast reduction mammoplasty is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of a woman’s breasts. While some people may wonder why any woman would want to decrease the size of her chest, there are actually logical reasons for this. In some cases, the sheer weight and volume of the breasts can weigh her down. You have to experience this to appreciate just how uncomfortable it can be. You will then get to understand why some women are desperate for breast reduction. Singapore, Thailand and a few other Asian countries in the region offer reduction mammoplasty as a standard surgical procedure.
Typical health issues caused by big female chests include some of the following:
– Excessive sweating (skin infections under breasts, rashes and sores)
– Neck discomfort and pain
– Poor posture
– Shoulder grooves caused by bra straps
– Skin irritations
– Unable to partake in certain exercise or sports
The Psychological Factor
While big bosoms are the dreams of many men and women with flatter chests, they can also have many downsides as you can see from the list above. There is also the psychological factor to consider too. This can come in many forms, but the five most common complaints from big chested women include the following issues:
1. Restriction in what fashions they can wear
2. Difficulty to join in with certain activities
3. Unwanted attention or harassment
5. Depression and anxiety caused by some of the above
There’s a lot of unwanted attention that comes with being a very busty woman. This does not just come from the ogling eyes of young men either. Having strangers stare at the chest area every day is not only unwelcome attention but it can be distressing. It’s not uncommon for other women to make comments, asking what bra size someone is.
The Problem with Fashion
Not being able to wear backless or strapless clothes is something that can bother a lot of women with overly large breasts. Button down shirts don’t usually work either, and there’s not much choice in pretty bras once they get to a certain size. This might all sound trivial, but these things remove a lot of choices for the way a woman dresses. This can be upsetting, especially for younger women. It can also be frustrating trying to find bathing suits that fit. It’s even difficult to carry cross-body bags for obvious reasons. There’s also the problem of pregnancy because the breasts become even bigger during this time. Developing even larger breasts is something these women dread.
Although a lot of people see big breasts as the stuff of dreams, having too much of anything is never a good thing as we have seen. Thankfully, women of today are a lot more open about discussing these issues than they ever used to be. Breast reduction surgery is also an option for anyone who struggles to cope with a larger chest. In fact, many celebrities have had it done, some to reduce the size of naturally large breasts and others to remove large breast implants.

How Breast Size Is Determined
The way a woman’s breast size is determined is by hormones, genes, weight, and body size. In the majority of cases, the size of a woman’s breast is proportionate to her body. Huge breasts are anything but proportionate.
Breasts are particularly sensitive to the female sex hormone oestrogen. Obviously the breasts grow during adolescence, but they don’t always stop growing once the girl becomes a woman. They can grow again later in life, after menopause for example. They can also grow if a woman takes hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Surgery to reduce the breast size of a woman typically takes place under three conditions, namely:
1. Not happy with the shape
2. Unhappy with the droop
3. Uncomfortable with the weight and all the associated problems around that
Perhaps you’re considering breast reduction. Singapore is one of the major medical tourism hubs in South East Asia (SEA), and worthy of consideration. Whether you’re looking at reduction mammoplasty to improve your appearance or for health reasons, Singapore’s highly qualified surgeons can help.
Wherever you’re thinking of having surgery, it’s vital that you have a thorough consultation with a highly qualified surgeon. The most important thing here is for you to be able to make an informed decision. You need to have a clear idea of what changes you can expect from the operation. Because this is invasive surgery, you also need to be aware of any potential problems. Although complications are rare, all surgical procedures carry some element of potential risk.
With reduction mammoplasty, some of the potential risks include:
– Lack or total loss of nipple sensation
– Problems with wound healing
– Unable to breastfeed
– Unevenly-shaped nipples or breasts
We call this procedure bilateral breast reduction surgery (both breasts). How long it takes differs between patients and the amount of work needed. Most operations take somewhere between two to four hours and are carried out under a general anaesthetic. In most cases, the patient stays in the hospital or clinic for one, maybe two nights after the operation.
What technique the surgeon uses depends on the desired results and the size of the breasts. There are actually several techniques that they can use. The surgeon will discuss the most appropriate options with you at the consolation stage. If you have any questions of your own, be sure to write those down and present them at your meeting.
In some cases, people have overly large breasts because of weight issues more generally. If this is the case with you, then you may want to look at a weight loss program before you make any decisions about surgery. Sometimes, abnormal amounts of fatty deposits can accumulate in the breasts with weight gain. That’s the bad news. The good news is that this excess of fat can just as easily go with weight loss. It’s just something for anyone who is overweight to think about.
