solutions for large breast

Oftentimes you will hear about those people who are interested in enlarging their breasts because they are not happy with the size but many times you do not hear about the other end of the spectrum. There are people that have overly large breasts and with that, comes baggage – which could be bad and good. Overly large breasts can lead to more serious health concerns though which will be discussed briefly.

Different Areas Affect by Large Breasts

Skin Irritation/rashes may occur when people have overly large breasts because of sweat and excessive rubbing of the skin on skin contact. Back, neck and muscle pain can be caused as well as numbness in fingers. Shortness of breath is often an issue and it may be difficult for a person to partake in physical activities due to their large breast size. It could become painful and just unenjoyable which people tend to try to avoid. Additionally, shoulder grooves can occur when a bra is not properly supporting the breasts. The larger one’s breasts are, the heavier they will be which puts a lot of extra strain on the upper part of the body.

Speak with Your Physician About Reduction Options

If you know anyone with overly large breasts or you have them yourself, you will know exactly all of the pain, pressure, and feelings associated first hand. It might be time to consider a breast reduction procedure.  It can be embarrassing to some because of the attention from others or the breasts can just start to hinder their quality of life. There is no valid reasoning to have to be unhappy or unable to partake in activities that you enjoy doing because of breast size. There are many options to help minimize pain and pressure that the overly large breasts are causing and this is something that should be discussed with your plastic surgeon or  physician.

The Risk of Seroma after Plastic Surgery

Surgical Complications and Seroma

There are many complications that can occur after undergoing surgical procedures, some of which can cause permanent damage to your body, while others can make you sick. It is always very important to heed the your surgeon’s’ advice for care before and after a surgical procedure. Everyone’s body heals differently and reacts differently to procedures and even though some of the care instructions may seem silly, you will regret not following them. Below you will see a list of complications that can occur after a surgical procedure:

Seroma and Plastic Surgery

  • Nerve Damage
  • Hematoma
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Seroma
  • Anesthesia Complications
  • Organ Damage
  • Blood Damage

This is just to name a few – there are many other issues that can arise that are directly linked to the risk of undergoing surgical procedures. We are going to focus upon Seroma.

What is a Seroma?

Seroma can occur after plastic surgery, and it generally is most often associated with those patients who undergo a tummy tuck procedure. The serum that is naturally in your blood can start to pool up underneath the surface of your skin, which in turn become extremely painful. The swelling creates pressure and the area can start to look like a large blister. Oftentimes, seroma is a breeding ground for infections which can get into the blood stream and become fatal.

What to Do if you have Seroma?

If you have undergone a surgical procedure and start to see some swelling, it is always best to get it checked out by your physician or follow up with your plastic surgeon. They will quickly be able to access the area and let you know the best course of action to take. If in fact you have a seroma, it is usually drained by a needle (they may reoccur) and antibiotics may be administered.

The most important thing to remember is following the surgeon’s advice and care instructions to help prevent any issues before, during or after any surgical procedure.
