Breast Reduction


 

About Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, can relieve the physical and emotional stress experienced by women with overly large, heavy breasts. A breast reduction involves removing excessive breast tissue, then improving the shape and position of the breasts for a more proportionate, symmetrical appearance. Breast reduction surgery by Dr. Aisha Baron in Marietta, GA can help if your breasts are causing pain and discomfort, unwanted attention, and trouble fitting into clothes. Larger breasts can also limit movement, physical activity, and cause posture problems. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Baron will perform breast reduction surgeries to remove as much or as little as you want to give you the best curves possible.

Best Candidates

Breast reduction may be appropriate if you experience:

  • Disproportionate breasts to the body
  • Painfully heavy breasts
  • Bra strap grooves in the shoulders
  • Limitations on activity
  • Slumped posture

What To Expect

During a reduction mammaplasty, the surgeon will skillfully remove excess skin and tissue before re-contouring the breasts. The surgeon can choose to implement these incision patterns:

  • Incision around the circumference of the areola
  • Vertical incision from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast line
  • Horizontal incision on the breast line

Liposuction may also be used to safely remove excessive tissue in the breast and will minimize scarring as it requires a much smaller incision. It also reduces the risk of losing nipple sensation and discoloration of the areola due to poor blood flow during surgery. The surgeon will discuss the difference between the techniques and help you determine which is best for your needs and goals.

Other Considerations

After breast reduction surgery, you may feel immediately lighter, due to the amount of tissue removed. After the surgery, you should wear a compression bra to support the healing process for the first couple of weeks. You will also be given post-operative care instructions and you can pre-schedule your follow up appointments to help you stay on track during your recovery process. You will need to rest for at least 7 days before returning to work. Regular physical activities can be resumed within 3-4 weeks. In some patients, it may take a year for nipple sensitivity to return to normal.

Freedom From Pain

Imagine living with lighter, more proportionate breasts that allow you to be comfortable in your clothes. Relieve your neck, shoulders and back of the aching from carrying around extra weight.
