Am I Too Young for a Breast Reduction?

May 24, 2019

If you have excessively large breasts, you may experience back, neck, and shoulder pain that prevents you from living the high quality life you deserve. You may also find it difficult to shop for clothing and feel self-conscious about your appearance.

The good news is that a no-scar breast reduction can allow you to safely and effectively reduce the size of your breasts and improve your overall quality of life. If you’re wondering whether you’re too young for a breast reduction, read on to find out.

The Ideal Age for a Breast Reduction

The truth is that there is no perfect age for a breast reduction as excessively large breasts can create physical and emotional problems for women of all ages. However, at The Langdon Center, we recommend that young women put off breast reduction surgery until they are close their adult height and their breasts have matured. In most cases, this is two to three years after the onset of their first period.

Additionally, since breast reduction surgery can impact the future of a young woman, she should make sure she is emotionally ready to commit to this procedure. During a consultation, we can meet with you to discuss the reasons you’d like to undergo a breast reduction surgery and determine whether you should schedule the procedure soon or wait a few years.

What to Expect During a No-Scar Breast Reduction

A no-scar breast reduction surgery involves removing excess breast tissue, skin, and fat to reshape and lift your breasts. During the procedure, Dr. Langdon conducts liposuction using tiny micro-cannulas throughout your breasts. These are tube-like instruments that he gently glides back and forth the numbed area and uses to get rid of fatty cells without harming the breast tissue.

This procedure can reduce the strain on your back and neck and relieve any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing. It can leave you with breasts that are more proportionate to the rest of your body.

Benefits of No-Scar Breast Reduction

No-scar breast reduction offers a variety of benefits that traditional breast reduction surgery simply cannot offer. It can be performed using local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia and is virtually painless. In addition, only tiny incisions are made and the recovery process is only 2 to 3 days long. Lastly, no-scar breast reduction leaves scars that are minimal to nonexistent.

I was surprised to find out that I could get breast reduction without having a major operation cutting into my breasts. Liposuction was actually pretty easy to go through and well worth it for the results. I did not have any trouble at all with the recovery. I know my shape improved and it is a lot easier to fit into blouses and dresses that I could not wear before. I am very glad I had the breast reduction liposuction and would certainly do it again if I had to make the choice over again.
