Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin. This procedure will help you to achieve a breast size that is proportionate to the rest of your body. Large breasts can cause extreme discomfort. They can also cause health, emotional, and self-image problems. These are the main reasons why women receive breast reduction surgery. You can also combine breast reduction surgery with liposuction. Here at Eastlake Cosmetic Surgery, we provide services to help women achieve their optimal level of comfort and confidence, including breast reduction surgery.
What happens during the procedure?
During the procedure, we will first administer anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Next, we will make an incision by using a circular pattern around the areola. Although the incision lines will remain a scar, we will conceal them. Our expert surgeon will do everything that he can to make the incision minimal. After that, we will reposition your nipple and reduce the areola by using excised skin at the perimeter. The underlying breast tissue that you have will decrease in size, be lifted, and reshaped. After this is complete, we will close the incision.
Will my insurance cover the cost?
Many health insurance plans will cover the cost of breast reduction surgery. During your consultation, our knowledgeable staff will take some time to speak to you about your insurance coverage. Once we obtain insurance information, you can schedule your surgery.
What can I expect after surgery?
After your surgery, you will immediately begin to live a full and active life. The emotional and physical discomfort, as well as the self-consciousness that may have been holding you back before the surgery, will now be gone! Our entire staff will work hard to give you the results that you are seeking. Our office is always clean and calming to put you at ease. We are always happy to answer any questions.
