When you peruse through the social media, you will find jawbreaking pictures of women with big breasts. It isn’t bad at all to have oversized breasts as long as you derive pride or comfort from them, but the load tends to be heavy for the counterparts. Having these big breasts or disproportionately large breasts is definitely another burden a female has to bear every single day. Apart from feeling a load in your chest, you have to endure the pain that these large breasts trigger in the neck, back, and shoulders. To make matters worse, you have to struggle with your public image, appearance, bra grooves, and embarrassments. And so, what is the way forward? –‘breast reduction surgery’
In an effort to find an ultimate solution for my big breasts, I had to take time to understand what a breast reduction surgery can do or what it can’t do. I was pretty amazed that a majority of its candidates are aged in the twenties and then onwards. In fact, a number of women, including celebrities have undergone breast reduction treatment in India for either medical or cosmetic reasons.
My Research about Breast Reduction Surgeries
At the age of 21, my heart yearned for freedom, yes, an ultimate solution for my heavy, painful, and embarrassing breasts. However, the biggest obstacle appeared to be my parents. I imagined how I could walk up to them and tell them that I needed a breast reduction surgery. Some modern parents are pretty easy or understanding, but telling them about a breast reduction surgery could seem like you are not okay with what you genetically got from them and so on. With that, I had to learn more about this surgery and in case of any questions; I could be able to convince them.
What I Got!
A breast reduction surgery works by removing the excess fat, tissue, and skin from the breasts. It is a personalized procedure, meaning that the surgeon has to opt for a unique approach in order to produce the desired goals. The nipple is normally repositioned and any other possible changes are made to serve one’s interests. It is an outpatient procedure and drains are introduced into the body. The entire procedure is conducted under general anaesthesia.
Meeting the Cosmetic Surgeon
I believe that cosmetic surgeons are doctors who actually understand the psychological toll associated with big breasts. However, I had to be certain of the surgeon in order to escape the associated risks. With the help of a few friends, we found the best cosmetic surgeon in Visakhapatnam. During a discussion, I was open and had to spill every emotional and physical pain I had to bear for that long. As a professional surgeon, a number of questions were posed and I believe that was a test I had to pass in order to undergo the surgery.
With the fact that I was still in my parents’ hands, the surgeon desired to meet my parents to help them understand my situation in case it was required. This relieved me of a lot of pressure and was finally in front of my parents.
The Meeting with My Parents!
I was pretty nervous about their retaliation since I am their only girl-child, but had to face the fact. Once they heard this, my mother became still and my father silent as the dawn. I was ready for an argument in order to convince them, but that could add another level of stress since they are my parents. ‘Have you been depressed with your breasts’, was the question my mother posed. With that, I openly told them the way I felt and lastly agreed to have my back.
