Why get a Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a transformative procedure designed for women who face physical discomfort, emotional distress, or health complications due to excessively large breasts. The primary goal of this surgery is to create a harmonious balance between the breasts and the overall body shape, resulting in a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing silhouette. At NuVista Plastic Surgery, we understand the profound impact that this procedure can have on a woman’s life. By reducing the size and reshaping the breasts, we aim to alleviate the burden of physical pain, such as backaches, neck pain, and skin irritation, while also addressing psychological concerns like self-consciousness or embarrassment. Our dedicated team is committed to guiding each patient through their journey, ensuring that the outcome not only enhances their appearance but also boosts their self-confidence and overall quality of life. With expert care and personalized attention, we strive to liberate our patients from the limitations imposed by overly large breasts, empowering them to embrace a newfound sense of freedom and comfort in their own skin.

Who is a good candidate for breast reduction?

Good candidates for breast reduction are individuals who experience physical discomfort due to large breasts, such as back and neck pain, skin irritation, or difficulty with physical activities. Emotional distress related to breast size can also make one a good candidate.

What can I expect during the consultation?

During the consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your medical history, examine your breasts, and discuss your goals and expectations. They may also take measurements and photos for your medical record.

How is the surgery performed?

The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make incisions, through which they will remove excess tissue and skin, and reshape the remaining breast tissue. The nipple and areola may also be repositioned or resized.

What is the recovery process like?

Recovery varies, but most patients can return to light activities within a week. You’ll need to wear a special support bra and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common but will gradually improve.

Will my ability to breastfeed be affected?

Breast reduction surgery can impact breastfeeding. If this is a concern, discuss it with your surgeon, as certain techniques may preserve your ability to breastfeed.

Why get a Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery offers a solution to the myriad of physical and emotional challenges that come with having overly large breasts. Skin irritation, skeletal deformities, and neck discomfort are just a few of the medical issues that individuals may face, while the weight of heavy breasts can lead to poor posture and long-term health problems. Additionally, the discomfort from bra straps leaving imprints on the shoulders and the interference with exercise can further impact one’s quality of life. Beyond the physical discomfort, excessive breast size can also lead to self-confidence issues, affecting overall well-being. Breast reduction plastic surgery goes beyond alleviating physical discomfort; it can also address cosmetic concerns such as breast asymmetry. With the expertise of a cosmetic surgeon and a dedicated staff, individuals can achieve a more proportionate and comfortable breast size, leading to a happier and healthier life.

What to expect when getting a Breast Reduction?

When getting a breast reduction, you’ll be asleep under general anesthesia. The surgeon will remove extra fat, tissue, and skin to make your breasts smaller, lighter, and firmer. They might also make the dark area around your nipple smaller.

After surgery, you’ll wear a special bra to support your breasts while they heal. You might feel some discomfort at first, but medicine can help. The scars from the surgery will get lighter over time, but they won’t go away completely. The surgery might make it harder to breastfeed in the future.

Sometimes, the surgeon might also remove extra fat from under your arms to improve the look of your breasts. This extra step is usually covered by insurance, and our team will help you with the paperwork.

Breast reduction can make a big difference in how you look and feel. It can stop the pain from having large breasts and make your body look more balanced. Your clothes will fit better, too. It might take some time to get used to your new look, but most women are happy with the changes.
