Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a smaller breast size. Most of our patients do this so that their breasts are more proportionate to their body.
Typically, having overly large breasts can cause discomfort. You may experience pain in your back, neck, and shoulders. You may also experience skin irritation from your bra. If this sounds like you, breast reduction surgery may be something that you should consider.
Large breasts can also cause emotional and self-image issues. You may have trouble finding clothes that look nice or hide your large chest. You may be embarrassed by your large chest and struggle with your confidence because of it. Many large-breasted women struggle with physical activities. These are all good reasons to look into a breast reduction.
Luckily for you, many health insurance plans will cover the cost of breast reduction surgery. We are happy to work with you and your insurance provider to ensure that you are receiving the best deal and the most amount of coverage possible.
Prior to the procedure, you will want to come in for a consultation with Dr. Yospur. It is important to us that our patients are in good health. We use this time to go over the procedure and what to expect before, during, and after surgery. While we are proud of our results, we want to make sure that your expectations are realistic.
Surgery is done under general anesthesia. Dr. Yospur is proud of his procedure. Instead of removing tissue from the lower breast, he does his best to preserve and sculpt the breasts to make them look natural by lifting and attaching them to the chest wall. This gives you extra support, almost like a bra. He even helps patients who have extra fat in their armpit area, using liposuction to remove some of that excess fat.
Dr. Yospur not only changes the appearance of your breasts but can also help with the appearance of your nipples. He will often make an incision and pull the nipple into the right position. This can be done with almost no scarring.
During recovery, your breast will be bandaged, and drains will be used for the purpose of removing excess fluid. Generally, the drains are taken out in 7 days, and you will wear a silicone sheet on your incisions.
After we remove the drains and bandage, you will need to wear a surgical bra for seven days. Then, you will want to wear a bra without an underwire for about three months.
It is really important to rest and take care of yourself after surgery. Typically, you can return to work after 7 days, and should be able to resume exercise in 4-6 weeks. By then, most of your swelling will have subsided and you will start seeing your true results.
