    Common Reasons Why Women Undergo Breast Reduction Surgery

    Last updated 14 hours ago

    Large breasts can cause physical and psychological health problems for women. If your enlarged breasts are causing you back pain or adversely affecting your self-esteem, you might have a cosmetic surgeon reduce and reshape your breasts so you feel confident, happy, and healthy. Check out these reasons why women commonly undergo breast reduction surgery:

    • Physical Health

    Large breasts exert extra pressure on the neck, back, and shoulders, and sometime cause headaches. Heavy breasts may also cause poor posture that can lead to chronic nerve damage, resulting in tingling and numbness in the extremities. If your breasts are of a disproportionate size and weight, you may struggle to sleep at night due to discomfort. Women may also suffer from rashes or irritation under the breasts.

    • Emotional Health

    For women, large breasts can have serious consequences for their psychological wellbeing and body image. Women with excessive breast tissue often feel self-conscious and opt for large, loose-fitting clothing. They may struggle to find bras and tops that fit properly and often suffer from the social stigma associated with large breasts. Teenagers are especially vulnerable to teasing, though adults may also struggle to fit in when their bodies deviate from societal norms.

    • Restricted Activity

    Women who have large, pendulous breasts can be limited in their ability to lead fully active lives. Large breasts make it difficult or even painful to run, play golf or tennis, or practice yoga. While sports bras can help some large-breasted women exercise, other women have a much harder time. The resulting lack of activity can have serious health effects.

    "To Drain or Not To Drain, That is The Question!" - From the Desk of Dr. Sanders

    Last updated 1 day 10 hours ago

    One of the most common concerns surrounding tummy tucks is the possible need for a drain post-surgery as part of the patient’s post-op care. Drains are used primarily either for draining out blood and/or serous fluid in an effort to prevent a seroma (serous fluid forming and collecting). The two main ways in which seromas are prevented is through the use of drains and also through surturing the skin down to the muscle at the time of the surgery.  Of 597 consecutive tummy tuck cases reviewed by the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, only one patient developed a seroma by use of suturing the skin, as opposed to using a drain. To learn more about PTS (Progressive Tension Sutures) and the two options available to patients who decide to have a tummy tuck, read the latest blog on my website titled “Tummy Tucks – To Drain or Not To Drain, That is The Question!” Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call my office directly at 818.528.6125.

    Dr. Sanders Provides Expert Insight Into Angelina Jolie's Breast Reconstruction Surgery

    Last updated 1 day 17 hours ago

    Surely you have heard the recent news of Hollywood's beloved and beautiful Angelina Jolie deciding to undergo a double mastectomy. After having lost her mother to breast cancer and learning that she carried a gene that ultimately positioned her at high-risk for developing breast cancer, Jolie had both of her breast removed and then underwent a breast reconstruction surgery with implants. Dr. Sanders shared some of his insight on this procedure and was featured on in the article titled: "Inside Angelina Jolie's Breast Reconstruction Surgery"

    In the article, Dr. Sanders is quoted with providing the following insider information: "Mastectomy patients may choose saline or silicone filled implants with smooth or textured surfaces in round or tear drop (anatomical) shapes. The choice is governed by their desires and their anatomy."

    To learn more about Jolie's surgeries and the cosmetic surgery options available to patients with similar situations, read the NewBeauty article in full and contact Dr. Sanders office with any questions you may have concerning breast surgeries.
