When Is A Breast Reduction Necessary?

By | Breast, Breast Reduction | No Comments

A breast reduction in Seattle is a cosmetic procedure that decreases the size of the breasts. There are a variety of reasons for a breast reduction. Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, a breast reduction is often a medically necessary procedure and can alleviate a patient’s pain and improve their quality of life.

The most common medical reasons for a breast reduction include back, neck, or shoulder pain. Overly large breasts can weigh down on a patient’s body, especially if they are petite or small in stature. This can cause stress on the spine and muscles in these areas. Chronic pain and even spinal problems often have their roots in overly large breasts.

Other medical reasons for a breast reduction are rashes or hygiene problems caused by the breasts. While these have topical treatments and can sometimes be prevented, often a patient cannot adequately improve hygiene practices to diminish these concerns.

Finally, living with overly large breasts can cause mental health issues and anguish that is unnecessary. Especially at a young age, large breasts can put a woman through increased stress and pain that can cause her to become anxious or depressed. Undergoing a breast reduction to make her breasts proportionate and even to the rest of her body can sometimes improve these mental health problems.

A Quicker and Easier Recovery with Ultrasound-Assisted Lymphatic Massage Therapy

By | Breast, Lymphatic Massage Therapy | No Comments

At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we believe in providing our patients with total care. That includes making sure that their recovery is as quick and comfortable as possible. Things like bruising and swelling are to be expected, but the degree of bruising and swelling that occurs can be controlled.

Other common issues that can occur during the recovery period can also be controlled with proper post-operative care. These issues include:

  • Fibrosis (the buildup, thickening, and scarring of connective tissue)
  • Keloid scar formation
  • Hypertrophic scar formation

Ultrasound-assisted lymphatic massage therapy provides our patients with the post-operative care they need. The ultrasound energy emitted by the device reduces swelling, pain, and bruising, stimulates lymphatic circulation and blood circulation in the body, and enhances the function of the immune system and nervous system.

Stimulating lymphatic circulation helps to avoid fibrosis by preventing fluid from building up around the surgical area. This makes ultrasound-assisted lymphatic therapy an excellent post-operative treatment for liposuction.

Preventing fluid buildup makes it easier for nutrients to pass through tissues, which will help to speed up the recovery process. The treatment also produces a relaxing effect on the muscles, which reduces muscles tension and nerve pain.

At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we recommend that patients receive ultrasound-assisted lymphatic massage therapy after they undergo breast augmentation or liposuction. The treatments typically take 30 minutes to perform, and the number of treatments needed will vary depending on the type of surgery that the patient has undergone.

If you want to make sure your recovery goes as smoothly as possible, contact The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery today to schedule a consultation. We can provide you with the outstanding care you need.
