What Is Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction, medically known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to decrease the size and reshape the breasts by removing excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin. This procedure aims to alleviate physical discomfort and emotional distress associated with overly large breasts, such as chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain, shoulder grooving from bra straps, skin irritation, and difficulty finding well-fitting clothing. By achieving a more proportionate and balanced breast size, patients often experience improved confidence, enhanced mobility, and renewed self-esteem.

The Benefits of Breast Reduction

A breast reduction offers many transformative benefits, including the following:

Relief from Physical Discomfort

Is Breast Reduction Right for Me?

A breast reduction may be ideal for individuals experiencing physical discomfort, such as chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain due to the weight of oversized breasts. Additionally, candidates may struggle with posture issues, limited mobility, and difficulty finding comfortable clothing.

If you face these challenges and desire relief, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Ascentist Plastic Surgery today. During your consultation, we can assess your unique situation, understand your concerns and desires, and determine if a breast reduction is the correct course of action for your needs.

What to Expect:The Breast Reduction Procedure

During a breast reduction procedure, which typically takes several hours, patients are placed under general anesthesia for comfort. We begin by making carefully planned incisions around the areola, extending vertically down to the breast crease and sometimes horizontally along the crease. These incisions remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to reduce the size and reshape the breasts. The remaining tissue is lifted and reshaped to achieve a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing appearance. The incisions are meticulously closed with sutures, and dressings or surgical tape may be applied. While discomfort and swelling are common after surgery, pain management techniques are employed to ensure patient comfort during the recovery process. The magic of our breast reduction lies in our precise surgical techniques, which allow us to reduce the size and weight of the breasts while maintaining proper blood flow and preserving nipple sensitivity and function.

Breast Reduction Recovery

Following a breast reduction procedure, patients can expect some downtime as their bodies heal. It's normal to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the days following surgery, but these symptoms can be managed with prescribed pain medications and proper rest. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting during the initial recovery period to facilitate proper healing. Most individuals can return to work and light activities within a week or two, although it may take several weeks for swelling to subside fully and for the final results to become apparent. We will provide you with detailed postoperative instructions to ensure optimal healing. It's essential to attend follow-up appointments with our team to monitor healing progress and address any concerns or questions that may arise during the recovery process.
