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.
Breast Reduction Reviews
"I can’t say enough great things about Dr KAM and her staff! She truly is the best plastic surgeon and her and her staff are very thoughtful and caring! Not only did she do a wonderful job with my breast augmentation, but she checked on me for several days after my surgery to make sure I was doing well. I had breast cancer last year with radiation on my right breast and Dr KAM is carefully monitoring that side regularly. She has the BEST bedside manner of any doctor I’ve ever had!! I, without a doubt, would recommend her to anyone!!"- H.W. / Yelp / Jun 28, 2021
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.
