While some women look into plastic surgery to achieve bigger breasts, others wish to reduce the size of their bust. Many women who experience physical and emotional discomfort from their disproportionately large breasts feel unsatisfied with their overall appearance. Breast reduction surgery can remove excess breast tissue and fat to create a breast size that is more proportionate with your body to achieve the bust you have always wanted.
During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will address any questions and concerns you may have and explain the details of your breast reduction surgery. He will also work with you to determine a surgical plan that best meets your individual needs.Schedule A Consultation
Your Breast Reduction Procedure
There are several techniques that can be used to perform breast reduction surgery. Dr. Hadeed will determine which method can help you achieve your goals based on your anatomy and specific measurements.
During your procedure, incisions are placed on the breasts, and excess skin and breast tissue are removed. The remaining breast tissue is tightened and reshaped to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The nipple and areolas will also be lifted and reduced, if needed, to ensure they are appropriately positioned and balanced on your breasts. In some instances, liposuction can be combined with your breast reduction surgery to remove fat from the armpits.
Breast Reduction Concerns
Following your surgery, you will be asked to wear a surgical bra to protect your new contours and minimize swelling. Swelling and bruising will occur but resolve after a few weeks. Make sure you avoid strenuous physical activities for several weeks or unless instructed otherwise by Dr. Hadeed.
You will notice immediate results after your surgery that will leave you feeling satisfied with your new, proportionate breast size.
Scarring will depend on the technique used during your breast reduction surgery. Any scars can be hidden underneath your clothing and will likely fade over time.
The cost of your breast reduction surgery will vary based on factors such as anesthesia fees, surgical fees, and the amount of correction needed. Dr. Hadeed will provide you with a cost sheet to look over together during your consultation.
