Of all of the procedures that plastic surgeons perform, breast reduction surgery is one of the highest ranking in patient satisfaction. Disproportionately large breast size can often result in chronic back and neck pain. While relief from physical symptoms is the most common reason to undergo breast reduction surgery, disproportionate breast size can also impact self-confidence. After a breast reduction, not only is there improvement in the size and shape of your breasts, but clothes may fit you better and your improved proportions often lead to enhanced confidence in your appearance.
Breast Reduction Surgery Procedure
Your private consultation at Atlanta Face & Body will introduce you to the procedure, which will be performed with a partner surgeon and center. To remove tissue and skin from the breast, one or more incisions in the breast and excess tissue and skin removed. Sometimes the nipple and areola have to be repositioned.
Recovery After Breast Surgery
Immediately after surgery, the breasts are wrapped in an elastic bandage or supported with a special surgical bra. Most women have some moderate breast discomfort for the first few days after surgery and then milder discomfort for a week or longer. You will likely resume your normal work and social activities within a couple of weeks.
