Breast reduction is a surgical procedure designed to alleviate neck, back and shoulder pain by reducing the size and weight of your breasts. You will also notice a significant aesthetic improvement in breast position and shape.
The position of your breasts will be corrected by lifting them higher up on your chest. Your comfort, breast symmetry and posture will be improved with your beautiful, smaller, lighter breasts.
At the time of your initial consultation you will sit down with Dr. Lyons to discuss why you are interested in breast reduction surgery and the changes that you would like to see. The details of your surgery will be explained thoroughly.
Dr. Lyons will take the time to listen, and all of your questions will be answered before you leave.
Your incisions can take place: 1) around your areola — where the light and dark skin meet around your nipple, 2) from the base of your areola down to the crease of your breast, 3) additional incisions may be required above or below your areola. The placement and number of incisions required for your breast reduction will be determined by Dr. Lyons based on your existing anatomy and desired results.
Breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete. You will be comfortable and asleep during your surgery.
Take at least 1 to 2 weeks off work for recovery.
Every patient’s recovery from breast reduction surgery is unique. You may heal faster than others, however, it’s a good idea to take a few extra days off work to rest and heal.
Your breasts may feel swollen and sore as you heal. These symptoms are normal and will disappear within a few weeks following surgery. Dr. Lyons will give you very detailed post operative care instructions to follow during your recovery.
Breast reduction surgery can be combined with other surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck. If you are interested combining your breast reduction with another procedure, please let us know when you call to reserve your consultation.
