Who Is a Candidate for Breast Reduction?
As one of the leading breast reduction surgeons, New Jersey women that come to Dr. Comizio will experience a very welcoming and nurturing environment. When Dr. Comizio sits down with our potential patients for breast reduction, she spends a great deal of time just listening to the patient. This is often a very emotional and healing conversation for our patients. Women living with large breasts usually experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms that can indicate whether or not they’re a good candidate for breast reduction surgery.
- Healthy – There are always risks with any surgery. Patients that are physically healthy tend to recover faster and more effectively.
- Non-smoker – Tobacco smoke greatly hinders your body’s ability to heal and recover. Women who want to undergo breast reduction need to quit smoking so that they have the absolute best results possible. The office policy on smoking is that you must be smoke free and nicotine free for 4 weeks prior and 2 weeks after surgery.
- Breasts get in the way of activity – Some women have large breasts but are still able to do things like exercise and sleep without their breasts interfering. Candidates for breast reduction typically have breasts that are so large they aren’t able to perform some physical activities.
- Physical pain – The most common types of pain associated with overly large breasts are neck, back, and shoulder pain. This is often caused by the weight of the breasts pulling the body forward and the support muscles in the back, neck, and shoulder compensating.
- Bra straps dig in – If your bra straps leave large indentations in your shoulders, it might mean you should start exploring breast reduction surgeons. New Jersey women who get a breast reduction often experience a great deal of relief when their bra straps aren’t constantly digging into their skin.
- Breast fold skin irritation – Another sign you’re a candidate for breast reduction is if you have skin irritation in the crease under your breasts.
Questions for Breast Reduction Surgeons
New Jersey women should make sure to prepare some questions before their first visit with Dr. Comizio. We love when our patients do their research and are engaged in the decision-making process. Here are a few questions that you might want to think about on your own and come prepared to ask.
- Are you board-certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS)? This is one of the main questions you should ask the surgeon you work with. The ABPS requires certified surgeons to undergo a rigorous screening process that ensures patient safety. Dr. Comizio has been a board-certified surgeon for many years.
- Where do you perform your breast reduction surgeries? In most cases, surgeons will use an outpatient surgical center or a hospital where the doctor has privileges. Whatever the case, you should make sure the facility is accredited. For example, Dr. Comizio has privileges at hospitals in Morristown Hospital, New Jersey and also uses a nationally-accredited outpatient facility associated with Morristown Medical Center.
- What will I need to do to get the best possible results? Not many patients realize that there is a great deal they can do before and after the procedure to get their best results. Quitting smoking, drinking plenty of water, eating healthy, and following Dr. Comizio’s post-surgical instructions can all make a huge difference.
- What is the recovery like for breast reduction? Patients should go into their surgery fully informed. Make sure you learn as much as you can about the recovery period so you can plan ahead. Patients are back to exercise at 6 weeks.
