Most people who don't fully understand the intricacies of cosmetic surgery would easily assume that everyone who undergoes surgery is simply doing it based on vanity. However, there are a great many rational reasons that may lead someone to seek plastic surgery. In fact, even the desire to have your physical features corrected in order to boost your self-esteem cannot just simply be considered vanity.
A 2004 study published in the Oxford Journals, Health Education Research, highlighted the far-reaching effects self-esteem can have on a person's mental and physical health. When someone has a healthy self-esteem, this would lead to better social behaviour and better health. On the other hand, various mental disorders, as well as social problems can arise due to poor self-esteem. In fact, someone with poor self-esteem may either tend to internalize problems (as evidenced through suicidal tendencies, depression, anxiety and eating disorders), or externalize problems (as evidenced through substance abuse and violence).
Obviously, you can clearly see that the aspect of self-esteem as a key motivator in seeking surgery would actually be a very rational consideration. Perhaps, you have asymmetric breasts, with one breast hanging lower than the other, making you feel embarrassed about your looks. Getting that much-needed lifting surgery would restore the low-hanging breast and create beautiful symmetry, which is sure to improve your body image and self-esteem.
Breast Reduction isn't Just About Looks
The purpose of breast reduction (breast lift surgery) isn't merely to improve your looks. Such a procedure can actually relieve certain physical aspects.
You may actually have enormous breasts that not only cause discomfort during mundane activities like sleeping, but also during serious workouts. Indeed, a study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine revealed that one out of every three marathon runners experienced breast pain. In fact, such instances of breast pain were much more likely to occur with bigger breasts.
That's not all. Extremely large breasts would have an even wider effect on your upper body. This is characterised by various physical complaints, ranging from neck pain, back aches to numbness in fingers and hands.
Some women have also complained of shortness of breath and migraine headaches, related with having a large bosom. From all such signs, you can easily see how this issue would affect normal daily activities like sitting at a desk or picking up your kids.
Breast reduction, where necessary, can help revive the youthful, energetic you.
Modern Surgery Drastically Lessens Scar Visibility
Obviously, the last thing you would ever want to happen after your operation is for someone to figure out that you've actually been through an operation. That might have been easier to do in the past, when surgical techniques hadn't advanced enough to effectively conceal the incision scar. However, advanced medical techniques provide options for less incision and better ways of concealing the scars.
A couple of surgical techniques that have been continually improved include the Lejour technique and McKissock reduction. Actually, there isn't any one incision method applicable to all women. Instead, there are a variety of options that surgeons would consider using, based on the specific condition of your breasts, which would give the best possible results.
