For young women , this may be detrimental to their self-image . A new study has revealed that surgery can bring immense benefits in terms of health and quality of life.

In the issue of October of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) The study focused on young women, with the average of age 18 that had surgery to correct an asymmetry of their breasts.

Dr. Brian Labow and his colleagues at the Boston Children’s Hospital studied 45 young teenagers between 2008 to the year 2018, of which all had severe asymmetry . Typically with a difference of two cups between the breasts. The women, who were 45 and 101 women who were not affected by asymmetry of the breasts were studied prior to surgery, and then later.

The majority of women with asymmetry in their breasts were diagnosed with macromastia, which is excessively large breasts on the one side. There were some who were diagnosed with a tuberous breast, meaning your breasts have been encased to the bottom.

“Surgical intervention to treat breast irregularities among young women can result in significant and long-lasting improvement in the psychosocial quality and life quality,” the researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital write.

Before the surgery, research revealed that the patients had suffered from low self-esteem, which affected their ability to function socially and in relationships when compared with their peers. A follow-up survey conducted a few years after surgery, all women reported a marked improvement in self-esteem, their ability to socialize and their emotional well-being.
