As we move forward as a society, certain stigmas around surgery are starting to dissipate. This is especially true when it comes to breast reduction surgeries. A number of famous entertainment personalities have come out and shared their stories and proudly discussed the procedure with major media outlets.
This is huge because countless women throughout the country and the world are suffering from things like back injuries because they are in need of breast reduction surgery. Stigmas often prevent them from getting the procedure, which only exacerbates the problem.
In addition to entertainers, non famous women are beginning to share their powerful stories as well. This is perhaps even more significant than the stars because it gives inspiration to regular women looking to address the problem.
Consider a recent article for the Huffington Post titled “What to Expect 1 Year After Breast Reduction Surgery.” Kadia Blagrove of the Huffington Post writes, “I made a YouTube video about all things breast reduction and I spoke a little bit about scar treatment. I started using silicone strips almost immediately after surgery but I found them to be impractical. I had to apply these sticker to my boobs day and night, washing them in-between wears. I couldn’t deal, so I moved on to ScarAway gel which was more convenient. I have to admit, after 3 months of using both strips and gel, I didn’t see the amazing results I saw in reviews. I eventually started to slack on my scar regimen. But I’m back on track now. I’ve been using Mederma for a month now. Let see what happens… Having such heavy large breasts caused me to have severe lower back pain. The surgery certainly helped relieve the pain and pressure, but due to the many years of this issue I still get some flare ups every now and then. Breast reduction surgery will help fix back pain significantly but it may not get rid of the pain completely. Seeing a chiropractor, stretching, and doing yoga has definitely helps me maintain a pain-free back.”
