Ariel Winter, from the series Modern Family, attended Disney’s D23 Expo just days after she admitted that she had undergone plastic surgery to reduce her breasts. She suffers from frequent back pains due to her large breasts.

Seventeen-year old Ariel Winter also said that people seem to notice her breasts first instead of focusing on her acting skills or how well she does her job as an actress. This is why the young actress underwent plastic surgery, specifically breast reduction.

If you’re thinking of getting a breast reduction surgery, here are some important notes to consider:

  • Preparation – Check the skills of the plastic surgeon that will perform the surgery on you. Find before and after photos of his or her previous patients. For the “before” photos, find a patient who has similar body size, areola size, nipple location, breast symmetry, chest size and breast size.

As for the “after” photos, the things to note are the visibility of scar, symmetry, whether they look natural, the location of the nipple as well as the extent of reduction. This is imperative because you as a future patient won’t be able to predict the results of the plastic surgery but at least you can somehow measure up the skills of the surgeon.

  • Operation – During the plastic surgery itself, three incisions will be done. First is around the areola, second is the vertical cut from the bottom of the areola to the underside of the breast and third incision follows the curve of the breast crease. After the surgery, the patient is advised to take time to heal from 5 days up to 2 weeks. Ariel Winter took 5 days to heal.
  • Recovery – During the recovery time, the patient must have these four necessities: ice, washcloths, loose shirts and special creams or ointments. The patient must also abstain from any heavy physical activities in order for the scar will heal faster.

Breast reduction surgeries are not just for women but also for men.

In a world where almost every woman wants to have big breasts for the belief that it will make them sexier, women with naturally big breasts wants to have them reduced because all they can feel is pain and not sexiness.

Large breasts may look more attractive but those come with a lot of consequences including shoulder, neck, and back pain that can become excruciating as time goes by. Another thing that makes women feel less is the fact that their large breasts get all the attention and not their face or their personality.

For all those reasons, breast reduction proves a viable option for women with problematic large breasts. However, breast reduction cost remains a hindrance.

Things to Consider

Breast reduction may offer a lot of advantages and benefits but just like any other plastic surgery, there are a lot of things to consider before deciding on it. The most common thing to consider would be breast reduction cost and if one has the sources to fund it. Basically, it costs anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on one’s case, how big the reduction would be, and other physical and medical factors.

There are some insurance companies that shoulder breast reduction costs but not every health insurance includes this or some includes only a portion of the overall cost. It would also depend on the area of the country you are living in, the popularity of the plastic surgeon you have chosen, additional procedures needed at last minute, and of course, the extent of the surgery.

To give you a better idea, here are the things that should be taken into consideration when you are budgeting for breast reduction:

  • Plastic surgeon professional fee
  • Hospital fees since you will most probably be admitted for a few days
  • Anesthesia and medications while you are in the hospital
  • Post-surgery medications
  • Tests to make sure everything is in proper order after the surgery
  • Post-surgical bras
  • Gauzes, ointments for better incision healing
  • Other overhead costs that are always unexpected

If you are truly decided, knowing breast reduction cost helps greatly especially if you are paying out of pocket.

The Beauty of Breast Reduction Surgery

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

In a world where everyone is going bigger, why would a woman with large breasts want to go smaller? This is a very common question that small-breasted women ask. They probably ask this because they have yet to experience the burden of having extremely large breasts.

From other people’s eyes, women with large breasts are sexy and lucky. However, for women with large breasts, it means having people look at your breasts instead of your face and bothersome neck and back pain. Here are some quick facts about the beauty of breast reduction surgery and how it can resolve your ongoing problems and pain.

How It Is Done

Normally, breast reduction surgery warrant that a patient stays at least overnight at the hospital since general anesthesia is commonly used in the procedure. The surgery takes around three to five hours depending on how simple or complex the procedure is. Remember that this may change in different situations.

The incision is ordinarily done around the nipple going down the breast. Excess fat, tissue, and skin are therefore removed. The nipple will be relocated for a natural look despite the amount of fat and tissue removed. Drainage tubes may be placed depending on the situation. Sutures are then placed and the breast is wrapped in special gauze.

A patient may or may not be required to wear a surgical bra. The plastic surgeon will instruct you on follow-up for suture removal. Patient will be given instructions for wound care and prescription for pain reliever or antibiotics should it be deemed necessary by the plastic surgeon.

Full rest at home should be for a minimum of a week though this would depend on your body’s ability to heal. There should be no strenuous exercises or physical activities for at least a month after the surgery. Depression can also be expected as with any other surgery and the patient must have some form of social support in the form of families and friends.
