The primary purpose of breast reduction is to reduce breast size to help women with complications due to their large breasts. Breast reduction plastic surgery will decrease the weight of the breasts, alleviating shoulder pain caused by bra straps and neck pain related to heavy breasts. A breast reduction will improve self-image and self-esteem with its gratifying cosmetic benefits. Breast reduction not only reduces the size of the breast, but also brings the nipple back to its proper place and gives a lifted look.

How Is a Breast Reduction Performed?

The procedure for a breast reduction is tailored to your unique needs. The general procedure is to remove adequate proportions of skin and breast tissue to keep the natural shape of the breast. We also retain the symmetry of the breasts and the vitality of the nipples and breast tissue.

Another factor to consider when contemplating a breast reduction is the surgical incisions. Dr. Yousefi uses advanced techniques to minimize visible scarring. One technique used by Dr. Yousefi is suspension sutures to give your breasts a fuller look and help results last longer. It is Dr. Yousefi’s goal that you are left with natural, beautiful breasts proportionate to your figure.

What Can I Expect After a Breast Reduction?

Generally after this surgery instructions call for decreased movement of arms and no heavy lifting to speed up the healing process and reduce the recovery time. Once the post-surgery bandages are removed, a specialized surgical bra, provided by Dr. Yousefi, will need to be worn for several weeks. Patients sometimes report minor discomfort associated with surgery, which can be treated with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the instructions given after surgery. Recovery time is usually one week, and patients can return to light work at this time.
