Your Breast Reduction

A breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, can reduce the number of health-related complications that result from very large and heavy breasts, such as back and neck pain, while also enabling you to enjoy the lifestyle of your choosing. A breast reduction can also be performed not for health issues but to create more aesthetically pleasing breasts in proportion to your body by removing excess fatty tissue, breast tissue, and skin. This reduces the size of the breasts while also lifting the position of the nipple and areola as well, making them lighter and more youthful in appearance.

During your consultation, we’ll go over the issues that brought you to our door, and we’ll help you explore the various procedures that can bring you in line with the results that you’re looking for. 

If you’re in Fort Myers, Naples FL, or the nearby areas, you’re likely to be a great candidate for a breast reduction if you’re dealing with:

  • Overly large breasts
  • Too heavy breasts
  • Back pain
  • Pain from bra straps
  • Limited outfits

Your Guide to the Breast Reduction

A breast reduction is similar to a breast lift, but the focus of the procedure is different. The main objective of breast reduction is to reduce the size or volume of the breast and reduce the amount of skin covering the breast. The scars left behind may be quite similar after these two different procedures. The procedures may be combined for the patient who desires a breast lift but would like to be a little smaller as well.

Your Breast Reduction Procedure

A breast lift or breast reduction is normally performed as an outpatient procedure under sedation or, in some cases, under general anesthesia. During your consultations, we’ll talk you through all the details of your specific procedure, going over everything from incision placement to aftercare instructions, so you’ll know exactly what to expect during every step of your cosmetic journey.

Most patients are able to return to their normal activities about a week or two after surgery, but it’s important to avoid strenuous sports and other activities for approximately three to four weeks.
