Breast Reduction Miami, FL

Breast reduction, officially called reduction mammoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin. This achieves a breast size in proportion with your body and alleviates the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

The weight of excess breast tissue can spoil your capacity to lead an active life. Emotionally, self-consciousness about having large pendulous breasts can have as much impact on your wellbeing as the physical discomfort and pain thereof.

Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is done under general anesthetic. The type of incision depends on your body. It could be a circle around the areola, a keyhole-shaped incision around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease, or an inverted T or anchor-shaped incision pattern.

Underlying breast tissue is then reduced, lifted and shaped, and the nipple is repositioned.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery – Miami

Reduction mammoplasty is not limited only to women. Enlarged male breasts are referred to as gynecomastia. Male breast reduction surgery removes excess fat and glandular tissue to restore a flatter, more masculine contour to the chest.

Breast Reduction Scars 

Scarring is inevitable. To help scars fade as quickly as possible, you need to ensure that infection does not set it by not getting your wound wet. Keep a dressing on as indicated by your doctor to prevent a scab from forming.

Once the wound has healed, you should massage the scar to break down the scar tissue.

Breast Reduction Recovery Time

Before your surgery:

  • Stop smoking and quit recreational drugs
  • Discuss the extent of the surgery, the estimated time it will take, and what your pain and nausea management will involve with your doctor
  • Take pre-op medications or adjust your existing medications
  • Avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding
  • You are usually asked to not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before surgery

After your surgery:

  • Pain interferes with healing, so manage it correctly
  • Monitor your temperature regularly as an elevated temperature could indicate an infection
  • Take the full course of antibiotics
  • Follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions to the letter
