Did you know breast reduction surgery reduces risk of breast cancer?

by Larry Oshiola Medical Consultant

Overview

Breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces the size and weight of over-sized, large and heavy breasts. The overtly large, heavy and disproportionate breasts can make a woman conscious, embarrassing and unhappy with her self-image.

Breast reduction surgery brings back self-confidence and self-esteem among women having breasts disproportionate to their body structure. Breast reduction surgery, also known as Reduction Mammoplasty, is aimed at helping to create an aesthetically more pleasing breast contour that is proportioned to the woman’s body.

The breast reduction surgery is performed by a cosmetic surgeon to make breasts smaller in size and lighter in weight by removing the excess breast tissues and fats.

Besides above, in many researches, it has been found that breast reduction surgery seems to play a very crucial role in preventing the risk of development of breast cancer. As the tissues and fat are removed from the breasts, the chances of breast cancer too reduce.

The clinical trial reports reveal that in the majority of women with a genetic predisposition or inherited susceptibility to breast cancer, complete removal of breasts may not be the proper preventive option. The study suggests that women who are candidates for breast reduction surgery may choose to get their breasts reduced to decrease chances of developing breast cancer.

The breast reduction surgical procedure is also referred to as bilateral prophylactic mastectomy. There is evidence that bilateral prophylactic mastectomy reduces the risk of breast cancer in women with a strong family history.

It has also been established in new studies that women who have undergone breast reduction surgery, can help cancer detection through testing of tissue and fat removed during reduction surgery. ASPS- American Society of Plastic Surgeons suggests that women undergoing breast reduction surgery after 40 years of age have been reported to be at low subsequent risk of breast cancer. According to ASPS, that enormity or extent of reduction in risk thus appears directly related to women’s age at surgery time.

However, doctors are of the view that breast reduction surgery should not be considered solely for the purpose of reducing the risk of cancer. This decision should be for other reasons like painfully large breasts that are also causing other problems. Once the breasts are reduced and contoured, there are lesser chances of breast cancer.
