The discomfort of heavy and drooping breasts associated with pain in the back, neck, and shoulder area can be relieved by breast reduction. Large breasts can make a woman not only uncomfortable but also self-conscious. Many women find that clothes and brassieres don’t fit properly.
Breast reduction surgery involves removing fatty and breast tissue along with excess skin. Typically, this involves making the areola smaller or removing some of the pigmented skin around the nipple. In addition, breast reductions include a breast lift or mastopexy.
We perform different types of breast reduction procedures. Many of our patients are candidates for the newer vertical reduction. This minimizes the amount of scarring and provides a more projected, youthful shape. Patients that have very large breasts or significant amounts of drooping will likely need a more traditional method of reduction.
Breast reduction and lift procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. This means that you go home the same day as the surgery. Most people can return to work in about a week. Dissolving sutures placed under the skin help make the recovery period easier on you. A pain pump is available for the procedure which makes the recovery much easier.
