Breast Reduction Q & A

What is a breast reduction?

breast reductionBreast reduction or mammoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that reduces the size of your breasts. Your plastic surgeon removes excess breast tissue and reshapes your breasts so that they’re more manageable and flatter your figure. 

Why do I need a breast reduction?

When you have large breasts, it’s harder to find clothes that are comfortable and flattering. Your breasts may draw unwanted comments that make you feel upset. You may need breast reduction surgery if your large breasts cause you any kind of distress, including:

  • Self-consciousness
  • Pain in your neck, shoulders, or back
  • Posture problems
  • Irritation or rashes in the breast crease
  • Discomfort during sports and other activities

The weight of your breasts can also pull on your bra straps, causing them to irritate or cut the skin on your shoulders. 

Breast reduction surgery takes off the weight so that your bras are more comfortable, your clothing fits better, you can participate in sports again, and no longer have pain because of your breast size.

What happens when I get a breast reduction?

During your breast reduction consultation at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center, your surgeon discusses the issues you’re having with your breasts as well as your hopes for a new, improved figure. 

They make recommendations based on your current body shape and measurements and help you decide how much breast tissue to remove. You can even preview how your smaller breasts will look with the VECTRA® 3D imaging system. 

Your Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center surgeon helps you prepare for your surgery by encouraging you to quit smoking and avoid blood-thinning medications, supplements, and herbs, such as garlic and ginseng. 

You should also arrange for a ride home and for help with household tasks for the first two weeks, which are the most intensive part of your recovery.

During surgery, you are asleep under general anesthesia. Your surgeon makes an incision around your areola that extends down to the breast crease. 

They then raise your breasts and areola to a youthful and flattering level, reduce the size of the areola (if needed), and remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin.

Can I reduce my breasts by removing implants?

Whether your implants need replacing, or you’re ready to go implant-free, the expert surgeons at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center can help. They may recommend a breast lift along with implant removal to keep an uplifted and youthful look to your breasts.
