BREAST REDUCTION 

If you have large, sagging breasts that may be the cause of physical problems such as back, neck, or breast pain, Breast Reduction surgery may improve or eliminate these symptoms and is covered by almost all insurance plans. Large, pendulous breasts over time, may lead to postural problems and chronic arthritis. Reducing the weight of the breasts allows comfort, and prevention of skeletal abnormalities. Patients also find it easier to exercise, and find clothing that fit their new shape.

Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast Reduction reduces the size of your breasts by making them more proportional to the rest of your body. Breast Reduction is a procedure where excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed. The nipple and areola are lifted upward (usually the areola is reduced in size), and skin that was located above the nipple is brought down, pulled together and sutured to improve shape and contour. The once tear-dropped shaped breasts will become more conical. The type of incision used depends on the size and shape of the breasts. The most common method makes one incision around the nipple area, another that runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease underneath the breast, and a third incision beneath the breast. Keep in mind; the incision lines are designed so that they will be concealed under the bra. However, the resulting scars are permanent, but should fade over time.

Recovery

After a few months your breasts will settle into a more natural shape. As with all cosmetic procedures, the final result will be apparent by about one year. Without that excessive weight, you may find that you enjoy life much more, and can engage in physical activities you did not think possible.
