Breast Reduction Surgery Starting at $4100
This procedure is also known as a reduction mammoplasty. Women with unusually large or sagging breast often choose to have this reconstructive surgery procedure. Unusually large breasts can cause neck, back, and shoulder pain which can hinder you from participating in sporting activities and even normal daily routines. In addition, unusually large breast can cause you to have poor posture. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then a breast reduction may be right for you.
The techniques of breast reduction have been significantly refined in the last two decades to improve the consistency of results and to maximize safety of the procedure. Our cosmetic surgery center uses several techniques which have been proven to be very reliable.
Even very large reductions can use a technique called an inferior pedicle to preserve the viability of the nipple. In an inferior pedicle, our plastic surgeon moves the breast tissue with the blood supply to the nipple on a cone-like pyramid of breast tissue up as high as is needed to reposition the nipple to a more desirable location. The remainder of the breast tissue on the outside and and in the middle are safely removed.
The skin cover is recut to allow a new hole for the nipple and a seam line in the middle to allow tightening of the breast envelope. The feeling in the nipple and the nerves is normally preserved. In addition, we use a tumescent fluid injection (also used in our liposuction procedures) to prevent blood loss while removing of the unwanted breast tissue. This also seems to allow faster healing because of less burning and swelling of tissue.
