Are you in physical pain because of your breasts? Or perhaps you simply want to change the appearance of them?
If either of these applies to you, then a breast reduction could be the procedure for you. A procedure that’s rapidly growing in popularity globally, there are numerous benefits associated with it.
Purpose of Breast Reduction
A breast reduction (also known as Reduction Mammoplasty for women or Gynecomastia Correction for men) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that’s designed to reduce the weight and size of large breasts.
Through removing excess breast tissue and skin, Dr. Scott A. Greenberg can reshape them so that they have an improved appearance and your breasts are proportioned with your body.
This is not only suitable for those wanting to improve their aesthetic appearance, however. It’s also an ideal solution for those that want to alleviate physical symptoms, such as shoulder and back pain.
Performed either in a hospital setting or at our surgical facility under general anesthesia, it provides patients with long-lasting results.
Benefits of Breast Reduction
Using his years of experience in cosmetic surgery, in the initial consultation Dr. Scott A. Greenberg will talk you through the procedure and what benefits you can reap from it.
Although results can vary, these benefits will typically include the following:
- Firmer and more youthful-looking breasts
- Reduction of physical symptoms
- Symmetrical breasts
- Reduction of areolas to improve the overall appearance
- A boost in confidence due to the altered shape and size
- No limitations of physical activity after recovery
Taking 3 to 4 hours to complete, breast reduction surgery is a safe procedure that helps to enhance your figure. Producing natural results, it has a minimal recovery period of 3-4 weeks.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction?
During your consultation with Dr. Scott A. Greenberg, you’ll also be able to discuss what you want to achieve from breast reduction surgery.
In addition to your expectations, he will discuss whether you’re an ideal candidate for the procedure and the techniques to perform it. There are several key factors that can affect your eligibility for the surgery. These include your age, the size and shape of your breasts, and the amount of breast skin that will need to be removed. Ideal breast reduction candidates will also be:
- Someone who has realistic expectations for the surgery
- Physically healthy
- Those who have physical symptoms as a result of the size of their breasts.
- Those that are limited in physical activity because of their breasts
If you do smoke, it’s recommended that you try to quit for a period of time before and after surgery. This is to ensure that your breasts can heal properly. If you’re on certain medications, such as anti-inflammatory drugs, it may also be recommended that you stop taking these. Of course, Dr. Scott A. Greenberg will counsel you regarding these.
