Considering Breast Reduction Surgery in Huntersville with Dr. Erik Miles
In our society, we revere a woman’s breasts as an asset, a gift from Mother Nature. They are a sign of fertility, femininity, and sex appeal. Some even go to great lengths to increase the size of them, opting for breast augmentation surgery or other methods to create the appearance of a more ample bosom. Women proudly display their curves and it is a great indicator of self-confidence and womanhood. However, some have been perhaps overly blessed, and their large breasts have become a painful burden.
Whether it be physical discomfort and pain caused by the sheer weight of their breasts, finding clothes and bras they are able to fit into comfortably, or they are just seeking to have a more proportionate and delicate figure, many women wish to reduce the size of their overly large breasts, and breast reduction surgery in Huntersville can be a life changing solution to all of these problems.
Good candidates for breast reduction:
- Are physically healthy and non-smokers
- Can be limited in physical activity because of their breast size
- Experience neck, shoulder, and back pain due to the weight of their breasts
- Have shoulder indentations caused by bra straps
- Have skin irritation at or beneath the crease of the breast
Breast reduction surgery, also known as a reduction mammoplasty, has become a common procedure in the United States, and over 120,000 are performed each year. During the procedure, excess breast tissue, fat, and skin is removed to attain a breast size proportionate to your body and to relieve the discomfort commonly associated with large breasts.
Equally important however, is what is left behind, and under the careful expertise of Dr. Erik Miles through a very personal and in-depth consultation, patients are able to receive a thorough understanding of the results they can expect to achieve. Various techniques are available. During your consultation, Dr. Miles will evaluate your personalized needs based on your individual condition, desired reduction size, breast composition, breast measurements, and personal preferences. The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce the size of the breasts to a more proportionate size, while achieving breast symmetry and an aesthetically pleasing shape. General anesthesia is used during the surgery, administered and overseen by a board certified anesthesiologist and under the supervision of Dr. Erik Miles and his knowledgeable and experienced assistants. Most patients are safely discharged and can go home on the same day of the surgery.
