Breast Reduction Surgery
While full and shapely breasts are desired among many women, and some will even have breast augmentation surgery to achieve this look, some desire to have a smaller, perky breast appearance.
During a breast reduction, liposuction may be used to remove excess fat and tissue, and the breasts are reshaped to look proportional to the rest of the body.
In particular, women who have excessively large breasts where the heaviness creates problematic symptoms may consider a breast reduction procedure. This is a aesthetic surgery, offered by Dr. Khoobehi that can reshape the breasts to a desirable size. Women with large and heavy breasts are not only self conscious, they often find it difficult to exercise,experience back pains, difficulty wearing certain clothes, may have skin infections and other issues.
Dr. Khoobehi is highly skilled in breast reduction surgery with jaw dropping results! He knows that it’s vital to maintain a good blood supply to the nipples areola complex as there is risk of discoloration and loss of sensation when blood flow is restricted. Nipple sensitivity will gradually return within the first year. Liposuction is also implemented to remove the excess fat while the loose skin will be excised and tightened to form the newly shaped breasts.
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. Dr. Khoobehi will communicate what incision plan would be best during the consultation appointment.
Breast reduction is always done in an accredited surgical center under general anesthesia at Outpatient Surgical Center. The surgery usually takes about 2 to 4 hours. For the first several weeks. Dr. Khoobehi will recommend the use of a compression bra to protect the breasts. Patients may go back to work within 7-10 days and may resume physical activities (such as exercise) between 6-8 weeks post-operative. Results following a breast reduction are usually visible immediately after the surgery.
The average cost for breast reduction procedure is between $10,000 and $13,000. Insurance does not normally cover cosmetic procedures. Dr. Khoobehi is known for his expertise and personalized approach in performing Breast Reduction. He works closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals, ensuring that they achieve the best possible outcome.
Breast Reduction FAQs
Will Results Last?
Breast reduction is a long-term solution for patients who are affected with excessively large breasts. In cases where there is significant weight gain, the results may be compromised just like any cosmetic procedure that modifies body shape. Natural aging and gravity will take their toll over time and will still affect the breasts with or without the reduction. It is important to maintain a good health routine so that the enhancement lasts for a long time.
For women with larger breasts, the areola is also excessively large. In a breast reduction surgery, an areola reduction is also considered. As an incision is made surrounding the areola, the excess skin will also be trimmed so that it is proportional to the breasts new shape.
How Much Reduction?
This varies depending on Dr. Khoobehi initial evaluation and the patient’s preference. Often, the reduction can result in a cup or two smaller from the original breast size.
