If you are considering breast reduction surgery, Dr. Hadeed can give you smaller, perkier breasts with a more defined and feminine shape. Most women who undergo breast reduction surgery notice an improvement in their symptoms almost immediately after surgery. Most women also gain self-confidence and feel better about their bodies.
During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will address your concerns with you and explain the details of breast reduction surgery. He will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best meets your individual needs while creating the results you desire. There are several techniques used to perform breast reduction surgery. Dr. Hadeed individualizes the technique for each patient based on their anatomy and specific measurements.
Breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. After making the incisions on your breasts, Dr. Hadeed will remove excess skin and breast tissue. He will then lift the breast tissues up on your chest to create a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing shape to your breasts. He will reduce the size of your areola and make sure they are appropriately positioned on your breasts. Sometimes. Dr. Hadeed will also use liposuction to remove fat from the armpit areas. He will then close your incisions after he is satisfied with the appearance of your new breasts.
After surgery you will wear a surgical bra to provide support for the new shape of the breasts. You will see immediate results, but it may take several months for the swelling to completely subside. You will need to avoid any heavy lifting for several weeks after surgery. Most women who experience neck, back, and/or shoulder pain prior to surgery notice an immediate improvement in their pain in the majority of cases.
