What Is a Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery, also referred to as reduction mammoplasty, is designed to reduce the breast size, so breasts are more natural looking and proportionate with the size of your body. Reduction mammoplasty often serves to alleviate feelings of self-consciousness and enhances one’s health as well.

How Is a Breast Reduction Performed?

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is performed under general anesthesia. To initiate the process, the doctor will make a vertical or t-shaped incision between the fold and areola.  He then removes the excess tissue to reduce the breast size and make the breasts look more natural.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Reduction?

You are a good candidate for breast reduction surgery if your breast size makes you feel physically uncomfortable or is causing you to suffer from such health issues as recurring neck aches, backaches, or discomfort during exercise. Candidates should be in good health and regularly follow a sensible diet and exercise plan.

What Is Involved in the Healing Process?

After the surgery, a tube is inserted beneath the skin to allow for fluid drainage. Any tubes that are inserted are usually removed after a couple of days. In addition, you’ll be outfitted with a support bra that will need to be worn throughout the recovery process. Also, plan to have someone drive you home following the surgery.

Usually, full recovery takes approximately a month and a half. Any activities that require you to use your chest muscles should be avoided during this time. However, you can engage in a moderate amount of exercise activity about two weeks after the surgery.

What Are the Typical Results?

Women who undergo reduction mammoplasty generally report they can enjoy everyday activities without experiencing the physical ailments that once affected them. In addition, they have more latitude in their clothing choices.

Procedure Costs

When you set up a consultation, all details about the surgery as well as the expenses will be covered at that time. As each patient’s needs are different, surgical costs can vary as well. Many insurance companies will cover a breast reduction if specific coverage criteria are met.
