While many women choose to have breast implants to create a fuller figure, many other women who already have large breasts undergo plastic surgery to reduce them. Breast reduction surgery is performed for a number of reasons, most of which involve physical health and emotional wellness. Before undergoing this procedure, consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn what it entails and what you can expect afterward.
Large breasts, medically known as macromastia, commonly cause health problems. Women with macromastia frequently experience pain and discomfort, including chronic neck and back pain, shoulder pain, and chest wall pain. Headaches, poor posture, shortness of breath, sleep disturbances, shoulder grooving, and rashes in the chest area are also attributable to macromastia. Undergoing breast reduction surgery can correct all of these ailments. Furthermore, macromastia can even contribute to obesity because it often leads to a low tolerance for exercise. Women who undergo this plastic surgery can enjoy physical activity without pain caused by large breasts.
This type of plastic surgery is frequently performed to improve a woman’s self-image and self-confidence. Many women with macromastia are self-conscious about their appearance. They may refrain from social events and other activities they enjoy because of concern over appearance. After undergoing breast reduction surgery, women can once again feel self-assured.
It can be challenging for a woman with macromastia to select a wardrobe. Many clothes are simply not made to accommodate excessively large breasts. Additionally, some women with large breasts also suffer from asymmetry of the breasts, further complicating wardrobe choices. Many women choose to have this type of plastic surgery because they want to select their clothing more easily.

Cellulite is often referred to as “cottage cheese skin” or “orange peel skin” because it gives your skin a lumpy, uneven appearance. It occurs as a result of fat underneath the skin, which presses on connective tissue. This pressure causes the skin to pucker. Cellulite is a problem that affects many people, including those who are slender. However, it may be more of a problem in people who are overweight, have a poor diet, lead a sedentary lifestyle, or have a slow metabolism. Although improving your diet, working out, and losing weight may help reduce cellulite, it won’t get rid of it entirely.
Many over-the-counter creams and products claim to diminish cellulite. Unfortunately, these have been proven ineffective – some of them are even harmful. The good news is that there is an FDA-approved treatment available for cellulite called Endermologie. Endermologie can improve your contour and your skin’s appearance.
To schedule a consultation for Endermologie, contact Town & Country Plastic Surgery at (713) 568-3257. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. R. Scott Yarish, MD and his staff have extensive experience in performing medical spa treatments and plastic surgeries, including face lifts, breast implants, and tummy tucks.

Before going ahead with plastic surgery, it’s important to make sure the plastic surgeon you’ve selected is board certified. When you choose a plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), you can rest assured that he or she has at least six years of surgical training and experience, with at least three years of plastic surgery training and experience.
Board certification also ensures that your surgeon operates only in an accredited facility and adheres to a strict code of ethics. Watch this video to see an actor portrayal of the potential dangers of choosing a non-board-certified plastic surgeon.

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures among women in the United States. This procedure helps women obtain a more feminine and shapely appearance, giving them more confidence and more clothing options. Use this guide to find out what to expect from the recovery process following breast augmentation.
General anesthesia is typically used during breast augmentation. This keeps patients asleep so that they do not feel or remember anything from the surgery. Breast augmentation can take from one to a few hours, and the surgeon will bandage your chest before you wake up. It is important to have someone ready to drive you home following the procedure.
Getting Plenty of Rest
It is normal to be tired following a breast augmentation procedure. Taking time off from work and other responsibilities is essential during the recovery process. You should spend most of your time in bed to give your body the rest it needs. You may also feel sore following the procedure, making it even more important to rest during your recovery.
Taking it Easy
Doctors often recommend wearing certain bras or bandages following breast augmentation. These garments provide proper support so patients can heal in a healthy manner. You can ensure a healthy recovery by wearing these garments and avoiding strenuous activity during the first few weeks following the procedure. Physical activity can cause strain on the incision area, potentially leading to injury.
Staying in Touch
Patients should stay in touch with their doctors following any surgical procedure, including breast augmentation. It is a good idea to check in with your doctor in the days and weeks following the procedure. You should also schedule follow-up appointments so the doctor can remove bandages and make sure the area is healing properly.
