Miami Breast Reduction Plastic Surgery
|Before & After Photos|
If you feel that your breasts are too large or heavy, then you might consider breast reduction surgery. Breasts that are disproportionately large can cause pain in your back, shoulders, or neck, breathing difficulties, poor posture, and chafing under your breasts. Many women with very large breasts feel self-conscious and unattractive, and large breasts may interfere with normal daily activities or exercise.
Breast Reduction is done under general anesthesia in our Miami facility. Incisions are made around the pigmented area (the nipple areolar complex) and extend vertically below the nipple and in the fold under the breast. The nipple areolar complex is moved upward to the desired location, while excess breast tissue, skin, and fat are removed.
The incisions are covered with light dressings, and the breasts are placed in a bra. The bra holds the breasts symmetrically during initial healing. Initial discomfort subsides daily and can be controlled with oral medication. Scars will usually fade in 6 to 12 months. It is important to note that breast reduction surgery will probably reduce and possibly eliminate the ability to breast feed.
The specific risks and the suitability of breast reduction for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation with Dr. Polo. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk, but major complications are rare.
