What is Breast Reduction?
A breast reduction is a procedure that often dramatically improves our patients' lives. Many women know all too well that having large breasts can be a burden on the back, neck, and shoulders. In addition, many women may also find it hard to buy clothing that fits their body well or bras that support their natural breasts. Dr. Breister Ghosh understands you may simply be uncomfortable with your breasts and feel a smaller breast size would better suit you and your natural frame. Breast reduction aims to reduce the breasts to a size and volume that is more proportionate to the rest of the patient’s body. During your private consultation with Dr. Breister Ghosh, she'll be happy to sit down with you and discuss your personal goals for how you'd like to look and what size you would like your breasts to be after surgery.
What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?
There are many benefits of receiving breast reduction surgery with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:
- Reduces the overall size and weight of the breasts
- May address nipple placement and areola size
- Enhances the shape and projection of the breasts
- Can be performed in conjunction with other breast surgeries like a breast lift
- Improves the fit of clothing and bras
- Creates a more proportionate look with your natural frame
- Boosts overall confidence
How is Breast Reduction Performed?
Your breast reduction will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. Each patient has different needs and goals when seeking breast reduction surgery, so your procedure will be custom-tailored to your concerns by Dr. Breister Ghosh. In general, the technique and incision pattern used during a breast reduction depends on the starting size of the breasts among other factors. Usually, the standard “anchor” pattern is used. Excess breast tissue and skin will be removed, and the remaining tissue will be reshaped and lifted. Your areola may be reduced and repositioned to a more natural and youthful position. The entirety of your breast reduction may take up to 3 hours to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Breast Reduction?
Following surgery, Dr. Breister Ghosh will fit you with a compression bra. This bra will provide your breasts with support, reduce swelling, and promote healthy healing throughout your recovery process. Dr. Breister Ghosh and her team may recommend wearing your compression bra for up to 4 weeks following surgery. During this time, it is recommended you refrain from exercise. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for around 1 to 2 weeks off work.
How Much Will My Breast Reduction Cost?
The cost of your breast reduction surgery will likely vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results.
