In the August issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, a new study was published regarding patient satisfaction after breast reduction surgery.
Patient confidence and pre-operative information had a large effect on the patient’s satisfaction with the results. The study also found that surgeons and patients focus on different aspects of the results when determining their satisfaction with the procedure.
Breast reduction is one of the most frequently performed procedures and is effective in reducing or relieving symptoms brought on by overly large breasts, including: shoulder and neck pain, bra strap compression, back pain, and posture problems.
Conducted in Denmark, the study included 125 women who rated their satisfaction with their breast reduction surgery results through a questionnaire six and twelve months after their procedure.
The plastic surgeons were part of the Danish public health care system, with the exception of one private plastic surgeon who participated. The surgeons involved used before and after photos to rate their satisfaction with the results of the procedures. The data was put into a report by Herlev Hospital’s Dr. Line Bro Breiting, and is one of the first studies to look into the satisfaction of cosmetic outcomes after the reduction mammaplasty procedures.
