Why choose Breast Reduction?
As much as large breasts are admired in our society, breasts that are too heavy and not in proportion to your frame and stature can be a real burden. Breasts that are too large can cause back and neck discomfort, grooving in the skin of your shoulder and rashes in the deep folds under the breasts. With the passing of years and the stretching of skin these problems become worse. Breast Reduction surgery is a life changing surgery that helps women achieve balance so they are more confident and can participate in a variety of physical activities, look thinner and feel less bulky. Women who have undergone breast reduction surgery universally state “I wish I had done this sooner!”
What is Breast Reduction?
Breast Reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with the body and alleviate discomfort associated with overly large breasts. Traditional Breast Reduction surgery involves incisions around the areola (dark skin around the nipple), down the center of the breast and long incisions beneath the breast the run from the center of the chest to the outside of the rib cage. This technique can result in longer scars and recovery time.
How we are different.
Careful attention is taken to individualize Your Breast Reduction surgery. We do not use outdated techniques with long incisions to remove breast tissue. Incisions are made around the areola (dark part of skin around the nipple) and down the front of the breast from the areola to the fold underneath the breast. The nipple is never removed from the breast. In cases of larger breasts, a smaller incision is made along the fold underneath the breast to enhance the final shape. We make every effort to achieve minimal scarring.
