Breast Reduction - Patient Testimonial and Review Video

Best Revisionary Breast Reduction Surgery in San Diego Patient Testimonial and Review

Before & After

What is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction in San Diego surgery can be one of the most satisfying surgeries plastic surgeons perform on patients. Many patients with huge breasts suffer from neck pain, back pain, bra strap cuts, and intertriginous rashes making them very uncomfortable. Historically, most breast reduction procedures are prone to bottoming out and lacking superior pole fullness. To address this problem, the Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery doctors perform a superior medial pedicle type breast reduction developed in Brazil that allows further removal of inferior pole breast tissue, resulting in less bottoming out. Most Del Mar patients are up and about within one to two days after surgery.

The Remarkable Benefits of Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery is a procedure where the volume of the breasts is minimized to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by huge breasts. While the procedure can reduce pain, it can also provide several emotional and aesthetic benefits. Huge breasts or macromastia affects over one million women in the United States, according to a 2005 article from WebMD.

Breasts that are too large for a woman’s body can cause many psychological, medical, and physical issues. As a result, many women opt for breast reduction. Breast reduction patients are among the happiest of all plastic surgery patients due to both their improved quality of life, as well as their improved self-image.

What is a Breast Reduction with a Lift and Nipple Reduction?

A lift and nipple reduction are often part of breast reduction surgery, and you can even opt for breast implants to preserve the shape and perkiness of your breasts. Our doctor's goal is to create smaller, more aesthetically pleasing breasts that balance well with your natural curves and meet your goals. As such, the doctor will reshape your breasts as necessary to meet your particular needs.

5 Tips for Your Breast Reduction Recovery

After your breast reduction procedure, there are certain things you can do to ensure that your body heals properly and that you achieve optimal results. During your breast reduction recovery, you should:

Maintain a Healthy Diet - Eating plenty of nutritious foods during your breast reduction recovery will ensure your body has what it needs to heal properly. Try to eat lots of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains.

Get Plenty of Rest - Your body requires lots of rest to recover smoothly from cosmetic surgery. Resting regularly is especially important during the first week of your recovery.

Take Light Walks Regularly - As soon as you feel up to it, you should start taking light walks around your home periodically. This will keep your blood flowing and accelerate your wound healing during breast reduction recovery.

Breast Reduction FAQ

Can I Breastfeed After Breast Reduction Surgery?

While it is best to have a breast reduction once you are finished having children, the surgeons’ specific techniques minimize the risks of losing feeling and blood flow to the nipples, preserving your ability to breastfeed after a reduction. In addition to the breastfeeding consideration, there is another reason to wait until you are done having children to undergo a breast reduction: pregnancy and breastfeeding can change the size and shape of the breasts. This means the beautiful breast reduction results may be undone by further childbearing.

Will Breast Reduction Leave Scars?

Ranch & Coast plastic surgeons perform most breast reductions using a superior pedicle approach, which minimizes scarring and reduces the chance of your breast bottoming out (drooping of the bottom part of the breast). To reduce your breasts, there are several incision options. Most frequently, the surgeon will make an incision around the areola that extends down to the bottom of the breasts. This incision may extend horizontally along the inframammary fold for more extensive breast reduction procedures. Following breast reduction, you will have scars, but the surgeons’s technique and years of experience produce faint and small scars that continue to fade over time.
