Feeling and Looking Younger

After I finished having my kids, I knew that I wanted a mommy makeover. My stomach was in terrible shape, my arms looked completely destroyed, and my legs had been carrying weight for years. I wanted a full body overhaul, so I started by doing what I could to look and feel younger. I started exercising each and every day, and then I worked hard on doing my hair and makeup better. It was amazing to see the difference it made, but I wanted something more. I consulted with a cosmetic surgeon, and I scheduled the surgery that changed my life for the better. Check out this blog for more information on looking and feeling younger.

Are You Ready For A Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction is just as it sounds: a procedure in which the breasts are reduced in size and dimension. Many people choose to have a breast reduction for aesthetic reasons or for health reasons—but your decision whether to have a breast reduction done is yours alone.

A cosmetic surgeon can do a breast reduction, and the same specialists who perform breast implants may be able to do a reduction as well. Are you ready for a breast reduction? If you're unsure if this is the right move for you, a consultation with a breast reduction specialist can be helpful in your decision, and can also answer your questions about the procedure in general. Here are signs you may be ready for breast reduction.

No bras fit you well

If you cannot find a bra that fits you well, or you have to wear multiple bras in order to get the back, shoulder, and breast support you need, then you may want to speak to your cosmetic surgeon about a breast reduction. Your cosmetic surgeon can go over options for a breast reduction regarding shape and size and whether you want to do a breast lift with your procedure to give your breast a new look.

Your back and shoulders hurt

Breast tissue can be very heavy, and even a D-cup breast size can reportedly add up to 23 pounds to a body's frame. Larger, heavier breasts can pull down on the body and make your back and shoulders hurt and the issue is likely to worsen with time as breasts sag more and have even less support.

You can wear waist trainers, a back brace, or other supports to help give your bra some help with your breasts, but if your back and shoulder pain persists, it's time to have something done about it. A breast reduction can not only reduce the pain and pressure placed on your shoulders and back, it can help you be more active overall so you can run and perform exercises that you cannot do with larger or heavier breasts.

Your silhouette isn't what you want

When you have larger or heavier breasts, they may take away from your entire silhouette and make you appear top-heavy or larger than you really are, especially if you are small-framed elsewhere. Your cosmetic surgeon can give you a digitally altered image of what you might look like with smaller breasts to see if this is the way you want to go with your body.
