Breast Reduction

Overly large breasts can be the cause of great discomfort, and even embarassment. In many cases, they often lead to a number of physical issues, including back, neck, and shoulder pain. Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Chandra Patel, offers breast reduction surgery to help patients alleviate any discomfort and insecurities they may have about their breasts. By utilizing state-of-the-art breast reduction techniques, Dr. Patel can effectively decrease the size of your breasts with beautiful results. During a private consultation, he will help you determine the proper shape and size for your breasts that will be more proportional to your frame and achieve your cosmetic goals.

Benefits of a Breast Reduction

Weight gain, genetics, and even pregnancy can all be contributing factors to overly large breasts. A breast reduction from Dr. Patel can effectively reduce the volume of your breasts and help you achieve the look you desire. The decrease in volume from your breasts after an effective breast reduction procedure can ultimately lessen the amount of stress put on other areas of your body such as your back, neck, and shoulders. Plus, breast reduction can significantly alleviate self-consciousness you may have about the appearance of your breasts, and make it possible for you to more easily fit into desired clothing.

The Breast Reduction Procedure

Prior to your breast reduction procedure, Dr. Patel will help you determine the size of your breasts that will most appropriately fit your body’s frame. During the surgery, he will remove excess skin and breast tissue while contouring each breast to meet your aesthetic goals. Additionally, he will reposition your nipple and, if desired, reduce the size of the areolas. Dr. Patel will take every precaution to ensure all incisions and residual scarring are as light as possible.

Depending on your needs, the actual surgery will typically take about two to three hours. As an outpatient procedure, your breast reduction will be performed under general anesthesia.

Recovery from Breast Reduction

As with any cosmetic procedure, recovery and downtime for breast reduction surgery will vary per individual. Most patients are able to return home the day of their operation. You can generally expect to return to your normal routine in about one week; however, Dr. Patel recommends that you refrain from physical activity for at least two to three weeks. Any discomfort or swelling can be combated with medication, and you will need to wear a compression garment in the days following your breast reduction to facilitate the healing process.
