Year after year, breast augmentation surgery ranks as one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world.
Breast reduction is performed for many reasons. Some women choose to undergo breast reduction for cosmetic reasons alone, but most women seek a reduction for alleviation of troublesome symptoms related to large breast size. These symptoms include neck and back pain, bra strap indentation on the shoulders, rashes on the underside of the breasts, and difficulty exercising, and fitting into clothing and bras. Many women find that these symptoms persist despite years of trying other things like weight loss, massage therapy, special bras, and powders and creams. Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast and fatty tissue from the chest in order to reduce the weight and alleviate the symptoms mentioned above. This procedure has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates. Many women’s only complaint is that they didn’t do it sooner!
What To Expect
Depending on how much breast and skin removal is required, two different incisions may be used: a vertical (lollipop-shaped) or a Wise pattern (anchor-shaped, or upside-down T) incision. The goal is to raise the nipple, reduce the breast volume and weight, and improve the breast shape, or contour. The surgery is usually performed as an outpatient, meaning you will go home the same day as your surgery and recover at home. Some women may require an overnight stay for observation. Dr. Shore will see you the next day in her office, and after that at two weeks, six weeks and then again three months after your surgery. Your activity afterwards will be restricted, and gradually increased as you heal from surgery. Most women can return to work within two weeks after surgery.
