Breast reduction - Benefits & side effects - Indian perspective
Heavy, pendulous breasts are often a source of chronic pain and discomfort for many women. Although women may request reduction mammoplasty to relieve pain and discomfort, many also hope that the procedure will improve their appearance.
Indian females always have a more fibrous and larger breast to there proportions when compared to westerns counterpart. Thus with lactation there is increased sagging and weight of the breast.
With increasing knowledge among the youth and their parents there is increasing number of reduction surgeries even in younger unmarried indian females
Most young patient seek help consultation for cosmetic concerns as they can't find a proper fitting dress particularly feel uncomfortable wearing a western dress. Some wear loose clothing to mask their breasts. They have low self confidence.
