Candidates For A Breast Reduction
Women seeking breast reduction surgery typically complain of the symptoms associated with having very large breasts, namely pain in their necks, back, and shoulders, as well as grooves in their shoulders from bras, and even headaches. Most women experience immediate pain relief and more balanced body proportions following breast reduction surgery. They are also able to exercise and have better range of motion after breast reduction, and find it easier to buy clothing that fits.
Breast reduction surgery is done to reduce the size and discomfort of very large breasts. Typically, an inverted “T” incision is performed, which involves an incision around the areola (the pigmented tissue where the nipple sits), a vertical incision that extends from the bottom of your areola to your breast crease, and an incision that runs along the breast crease. During your initial consultation, our doctors will take measurements of your breasts and discuss with you the extent of size reduction you desire. They will also discuss the location of your breast incisions with you during your consultation.
Breast reduction is done as outpatient surgery under general anesthesia. Recovery varies with each patient, but most patients are back to normal activities in the first weeks after surgery. Your doctor will discuss pain management with you prior to surgery.
Most insurance plans cover breast reduction surgery for women with pain and other symptoms resulting from large breast size. Our office will make the necessary inquiries and arrangements with your insurance carrier if you decide to have breast reduction surgery.
