Breast Reduction
Breast reduction is an enhancement procedure that reshapes the breasts in order to make them smaller, lighter, and firmer.  Reduction is accomplished by removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin.  Large breasts can cause physical pain as well as emotional and social anxiety.  Women who take advantage of the breast reduction procedure find that they are able to lead a healthier, more comfortable life, in addition to enjoying a beautiful, more proportionate appearance.
Reasons for Considering a Breast Reduction:

» Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by heavy breasts.
» Sagging breasts produced by their large size.
» Disproportionate body frame attributed to oversized breasts.
»  Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of the breasts.
»  Painful bra strap marks and/or rashes as a result of large breasts.
General Procedure

Techniques for breast reduction vary; however, the most common procedure involves an incision that circles the areola.  From the areola, the incision goes down and then uner the natural curve under the breast.  Dr. Shaw will then remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin and create a pedicle maintaining blood supply and sensation to the nipple/areola.  Next, the nipple and areola are repositioned to a higher position and the breast tissue is re-approximated.  The best procedure can be determined during the initial consultation with Dr. Shaw where you will discuss your goals and expectations.

Of all plastic surgery procedures, breast reduction results in the quickest body-image changes.  Patients are pleased with the elimination of physical pain caused by large breasts as well as a better proportioned body, an enhanced appearance, and better fitting clothes.

Recovery Process

Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and reduce the recovery time.  Bandages are applied immediately following surgery to aid the healing process and to minimize movement of the breasts.  Once the bandages are removed, a specialized surgical bra will need to be worn for several weeks.  Patients sometimes report minor discomfort associated with breast reduction surgery.  Any pain can be treated with oral medication.  While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the instructions given after surgery.
