We want you to feel comfortable in your own skin, and we can help you achieve a breast size that is proportional to the rest of your body. During your personal consultation, we will walk you through the procedure and inform you of what you need to know to make the best decision for you.
Preparing For Breast Reduction Surgery
Before the procedure, your surgeon will discuss the various aspects of breast reduction surgery. Once you determine an appropriate breast size, we can perform the surgery.
What To Expect During Surgery
To begin, an incision will be created. Depending on how much reduction is required, different incisions may be used. More extensive lifting will typically require an incision that circles the areolas and continues down the breast. This allows us to remove excess skin and breast tissue, as well as tighten the breast to a firm and lifted position. The incision method we use will depend on the size of your breasts and your end goal. Usually the procedure lasts about 2-3 hours.
Once your surgeon is finished with your breast reduction, they will close the incisions, drains will be placed for a short period of time, and you will begin your recovery.
What to Expect After Your Breast Reduction
While experiences vary, women typically need about a week to recover from a breast reduction. After surgery, you will be given a surgical bra to wear to help your breasts maintain their new shape. Most women can resume exercise about 4 weeks after their procedure.
