What is Breast Reduction?
Excessively large breasts also referred to as macromastia, can take a physical and emotional toll on women. This excess amount of breast tissue, fat, and skin may cause sagging and heavy breasts, which in turn can lead to neck strain, back pain, and other physical ailments.
Large breasts can also leave a woman feeling self-conscious about her body and unsatisfied with the way clothes fit. Breast reduction surgery can help enhance your appearance and overall comfort.
Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammaplasty, can correct overly large breasts, yielding life-changing results. Our highly skilled team of board-certified plastic surgeons will excise the excess tissue, fat, and skin, while also performing a breast lift to give your breasts a perky, youthful appearance. The result: natural-looking breasts and an improved body contour.
What are the Benefits?
Our board-certified plastic surgeons strive to achieve beautiful and natural results. After a breast reduction procedure at Polyclinic Plastic Surgery, you can expect:
- Relief of physical pain and ailments
- A boost in self-confidence and body image
- Improvement in posture
- A more proportionate figure
- Improved ease of everyday activities, including exercise
- Beautiful, natural-looking breasts
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Women with overly large breasts may suffer from physical or emotional pain, which can adversely affect quality of life. A patient is a good candidate when their breasts cause significant discomfort, including neck and back pain, skin irritation under the breasts, poor posture, or bra strap indentations on shoulders. Ideal candidates are in good physical health, of stable weight, and are non-smokers. Candidates should also expect realistic, natural results.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
Recovery varies by patient, but all can expect to experience soreness and swelling after surgery. You may be sent home with a surgical garment that helps prevent excess swelling and fluid retention. Your surgeon will provide a prescription for pain medication to ease discomfort along with at-home care instructions.
Activity will be restricted for about 4 weeks, and your surgeon will continue to monitor your recovery with postoperative follow-up appointments.
