Breasts that are very large cause both aesthetic and functional problems. Over time, women with oversized breasts frequently suffer from posture problems, back and neck pain, and deep shoulder indentations from bra straps. In addition, they may feel insecure about their appearance. The answer, for many of these women, is a breast reduction. Coral Gables Cosmetic Center is ideally located in South Florida for Miami and Fort Lauderdale residents and others in the area who want to explore breast reduction surgery.
Types of Breast Reduction Surgery
There are a variety of reduction procedures available, and numerous incision patterns that can be used. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Coral Gables thoroughly discuss the steps and options of this procedure with patients. The doctor typically uses an anchor-shaped breast reduction incision, which travels around the nipple, down to the base of the breast, and along the inframammary fold. This incision allows the surgeon to remove excess skin from the bottom half of the breast. In many cases, liposuction is also used to remove fatty tissue from inside the breast. After removing the appropriate tissue, the doctor relocates the nipple and closes the incisions to create a smaller, perkier breasts that feel more comfortable and fit the patient's body better.
Recovery from Breast Reduction Surgery
After surgery, Miami breast reduction patients should plan to go through a recovery period. Most patients can return to work after about two weeks, once their stitches are removed. It is important to wear a specialized surgical bra for several weeks after surgery, and avoid heavy lifting during this time. Some breast reduction patients experience pain or tenderness during menstrual periods for a few months after surgery. Full healing may take six months or more.
