What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Also referred to as reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction is a surgical procedure in which excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed from a woman’s breasts to decrease their overall size. Most women choose this surgery because of the emotional and physical discomfort that can sometimes come with large, heavy breasts.

During the procedure, the patient is administered anesthesia. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, an incision is made around the areola. Excess tissue and fat are then carefully removed through the incision. Once this has been successfully removed, any excess skin around the breasts is carefully excised.

Following the procedure, patients are advised post care procedures which include no heavy lifting or strenuous activities for the next few weeks. While most women can return to work after 10-14 days, contact with the breasts should remain gentle for at least 4-6 weeks after surgery.

What are the benefits of Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction surgery can be incredibly empowering for the women that receive it. Often, large breasts carry with them a great deal of both mental and physical stress. The sheer weight of larger breasts can often cause chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain that is almost impossible to alleviate completely. In the United States, large breasts can make women feel they look matronly or overweight and make buying clothes that don’t appear too provocative a challenge. Attracting unwanted attention because of big breasts can be socially stressful for many women.

With a breast reduction procedure, women can get rid of these sources of stress and anxiety. After undergoing this surgery, the vast majority of women report being extremely satisfied with their results.

Am I a Candidate?

Nearly any woman who is unhappy with the size of her breasts or experiences significant physical discomfort because of them is a potential candidate for a breast reduction procedure. All candidates must be in good health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.

If you think you could benefit from a breast reduction procedure, don’t hesitate — contact RG Plastic Surgery and Rejuvenation Spa to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia.
