For women who have large breasts, even simple movement can be painful. Finding clothing that fits can be a challenge, and wearing uncomfortable bras can be a part of everyday life.
At the Naples, Florida plastic surgery office, Naples cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Manuel Peña performs breast reduction surgery to help women escape the disadvantages of overly large breasts. We can also perform breast reduction for men with gynecomastia, a condition involving excess breast tissue.
Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, involves removing excess skin, breast tissue, and fat to achieve a proportion that is better suited to the patient. Breast size is reduced, and any asymmetry is corrected.
Will my breast be lifted with breast reduction?
Breast Reduction Procedure
- You are sedated prior to the procedure using intravenous medication. Dr. Peña carefully makes incisions in discreet areas.
- Dr. Peña removes targeted areas of excess breast tissue and skin and then closes the incisions with sutures. The nipples and areolas may require a new position, especially in cases where patients are combining a breast lift with a breast reduction.
- The breast area will be bandaged and you’ll be given explicit instructions to follow during the recovery period. Post-operative medications may be prescribed to reduce swelling and minimize discomfort.
- You will need to return to our Naples office for a series of brief follow-up visits to ensure your body is healing properly.
The final result is improved breast shape with reduced weight and size.
Breast reduction can help you escape neck, back and shoulder pain, and related postural problems. If having large breasts has prevented you from participating in sports or other athletic activities, breast reduction can give you a newfound freedom. Your comfort and confidence can be significantly enhanced with this procedure.
If you have been dealing with the negative effects of oversized breasts for far too long, a breast reduction can make life easier. Please schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Peña to discuss your ideal breast size.
The results of breast reduction surgery are considered permanent. However, the breasts may become larger or their shape may change as a result of pregnancy, weight gain, or weight loss.
