In most cases, breast reduction is performed for purely cosmetic reasons, for women who are not satisfied with the size of their breasts, for women who suffer from an asymmetry between their breasts, and for women whose breasts have lost their aesthetics, after pregnancy and childbirth (especially after breastfeeding). This surgery is done to enhance the woman's self-confidence and sense of femininity, which is the main reason why women perform cosmetic surgeries, which have no medical reason. Also, this surgery has medical implications, for example: in women who feel the weight of their chest, causing them to feel discomfort or physical impotence such as back, shoulders, neck pain and the appearance of scoliosis and shortness of breath and others. Also, this surgery is done in men who are suffering from hormonal imbalance, which causes the formation of excess tissue in the breast (gynecomastia). Through this surgery, excess surplus fat, skin, and glands in the breast are removed, as needed.
Preparing for breast reduction surgery includes a pre-operative consultative meeting, in which you are asked whether you have certain diseases, which may not allow surgery, and about the reasons that prompted you to resort to this surgery. Several factors affect the selection of the required chest size, but in most cases, the breast is reduced to a maximum degree as possible, and not for a very small size. In men, it is usual practice to remove all excess breast tissue. Before undergoing surgery, the doctor will send the patient to perform some tests as needed. In most cases, there is no need for multiple tests except for the complete blood count (CBC) test and blood chemistry. The patient may also have a mammogram and breast tissue exam before surgery. However, older patients may be required to have a chest imaging examination before surgery.
