Breast Reduction surgery is designed to reduce or eliminate the physical problems associated with having very large breasts. Removing excess fat, skin, and glandular tissues creates smaller, firmer and ultimately, lighter breasts that are more proportionate to the patient’s body type. This often alleviates the pain and discomfort of having disproportionately large breasts.
The Breast Reduction procedure can help you if you:
- Suffer from chronic back and neck pain
- Suffer from kyphosis, or the rounding of the upper back and cervical spine because of over-compensation due to breast weight
- Don’t smoke
- Have realistic expectations
What to Expect During your Consultation:
In order to create the best possible results from your breast reduction surgery, it is important that your surgeon consult with you to discuss your desires and expectations. It is a good idea to prepare by considering the following before your consultation:
- General medical history, including any genetic propensity for breast cancer, results of previous mammograms
- A detailed account of current prescription medications, supplements (vitamins or others)
- Any use of tobacco or other drugs
- What are your expectations?
Philadelphia cosmetic surgeons Dr. Mirabile and Dr. Hsu will consult with each patient to decide which breast reduction procedure would be best to use. Patients can achieve breast reduction with liposuction alone, or may require multiple incisions to reposition the nipple areolar complex. Common risks and complications will be reviewed with each patient.
In our practice, we have had many years of considerable success performing breast reduction surgery. Patients are usually quite pleased with their postoperative appearance and often feel healthier with reduced back and neck pain.
