What is a Breast Reduction?
Excessively large breasts can cause physical and social issues for women. In addition, uneven and very large breasts can create self-confidence issues and embarrassment, as well as upper back, neck, and shoulder pain. Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina in Plano, TX believes that breast reduction can help women regain their confidence and enjoy the life they want. This surgery at Beyond Beautiful Texas removes excess breast fat and skin, as well as excess tissue to reshape the breasts to a more compatible size. Breast reduction surgery also reduces the size of the nipples and moves them so they are symmetrical with the new breast size. In most situations, a breast lift is achieved to provide a more taut and youthful appearance.
Do I qualify for a breast reduction?
If you suffer from excessively large breasts that interfere with daily life, breast reduction may be what you need to achieve the contour you wish for. Breast reduction is helpful for women who find it difficult to live a fulfilled and active life because of the size of their breasts. If you also have consistent skin problems (as well as back or neck pain), breast reduction surgery can greatly diminish these medical conditions. It is crucial patients are at a stable weight. Dr. Aliano Messina understands patients' concerns and goals.

"I can't recommend Dr. Ho and his staff enough. He is the only person I have trusted to touch my face with injections or fillers. He always keeps you looking natural but just like a better you! I don't want to look like I'm "trying" too hard! I want to look like best version of me for my age. Recently I did a series of 3 Plasma Pen treatments. I am very happy with the results. He says I will continue to see results for a few months as things tighten and the collagen does its work. There was very minimal downtime involved and no pain. Within a few days I could cover the area with makeup and go about my business. All in all I highly recommend this treatment. The first photo is immediately after a treatment and the 2nd is 6 weeks post-treatment."- T.D. / Google / Apr 30, 2021

"Bellafill immediately lifted & added volume to my face - I'm so impressed with Dr. Ho's new associate Dr. Kristen Aliano Messina, Plastic Surgeon.

Breast REduction Surgical Technique
Surgical breast reduction is an outpatient process and is performed with general anesthesia. The timing of surgery depends on many factors, including what incision method is used, the overall reduction technique, and finally, the amount of tissue removal needed. The areola and nipple area repositioning is also a factor. At the time of the initial consult, all of these factors are addressed with Dr. Aliano Messina. The potential for scarring is also thoroughly examined and talked through. Scar management is an important part of the aftercare of this procedure. Depending on the intricacy of the size and overall reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be used. Breast fat and tissue will then be removed, and the surrounding tissue and skin will be tightened.
What Can I expect After a Breast Reduction?
After surgery, our patients will be observed closely in the recovery room and then discharged home to begin the healing process. A medical sports bra will be provided for a few days that will improve blood circulation to the breasts during the initial healing period. In a month or so, the breasts will naturally fall into position and the post-surgery effects will diminish. Following surgical breast reduction, you can enjoy the clothes you have always wanted and feel enthusiastic about your new appearance. Keep in mind, it is important to maintain a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not negatively impacted.
