Breast reduction is a procedure that reduces the size of large breasts. It is performed to improve someone’s day-to-day activities, energy and self-esteem. The surgeons at STARS Plastic Surgery specializes in this particular procedure and will make short incisions on the breast to remove excessive breast fat and skin. The aftermath of this surgery is not only smaller breasts, but ones that are more lifted and better-shaped. Not only will women appreciate the cosmetic results, but will notice diminished pain and discomfort that came as a result of large breasts.
Breast reduction – more information
It is important to find a highly skilled surgeon who has experience with this procedure. It is important to maintain a good blood supply to the nipple areola complex as there is risk of discoloration and loss of sensation when blood flow is restricted. Liposuction is also implemented to remove the excess fat, and the loose skin will be excised and tightened to form the newly shaped breasts. This procedure is also implemented as a way to correct an issue of breast asymmetry.
The most common incision for breast reduction is what they call “the anchor”, or a vertical T. With this kind of approach, the incision is made around the areola, extends vertically down to the breast crease, and then is followed by another horizontal incision along the direction of the fold. The areola will be repositioned once the breasts have been resized and recurved. A lift will also be done so that the breasts will be placed higher on the chest.
