What Is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is an effective procedure designed to shape and contour disproportionate or overly large breasts. Women generally undergo a breast reduction to achieve more proportionate breasts in relation to their bodies or to eliminate the discomfort that comes from having excessively large breasts.

During this procedure, Dr. Perez-Gurri or Dr. Garcia will surgically shape your breasts through meticulously placed incisions. Your surgeon will first examine your individual needs to determine which method is the most suitable to maximize optimal results. Once your procedure is complete, the results are immediately noticeable and patients are able to enjoy a life free of back, shoulder, and neck pain caused by large breasts.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery?

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, a breast reduction surgery offers a wide variety of benefits to patients who pursue it, including:

  • Alleviated back pain
  • Improved aesthetic appearance
  • More active lifestyle
  • Better fit in clothes
  • Improved quality of life
  • Improved self-confidence

Miami Breast Reduction Steps

Having years of experience in the cosmetic surgery industry, Dr. Perez-Gurri and Dr. Garcia have developed elevated techniques that allow them to reduce the size of the breasts in safe and effective ways. These methods to reduce the breasts include an incision that spans around the areolas, incisions that reach around the areolas and down to the crease of the breasts, and the “anchor-shaped” incision that runs around the areolas, down the breasts, and along the breast creases.

After the incisions are created, the excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are lifted, reduced, and repositioned to a more desirable size. In most cases, the nipples and areolas can stay attached to the blood vessels and nerves, but on occasion, they will need to be removed and repositioned higher. This can result in loss of sensation and additional scarring or pigmentation changes.

Sutures will be placed deeply within the underlying tissues of the breasts, helping to hold their new, higher shape and smaller size for long-lasting results.

Breast Reduction Options

Breast reduction surgery is one of the most rewarding procedures because it provides emotional and physical relief for women with overly large breasts. Breast reduction surgery can help a woman attain breasts that are smaller and more proportionate to her entire body. When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Perez-Gurri or Dr. Garcia in Miami, breast reduction surgery can help a patient enhance the appearance of her breasts, relieve tension in her upper back, and improve her self-image.

Many times Breast Reduction is combined with a Breast Lift to enhance the natural results of the procedures.  During your consultation, Dr. Perez-Gurri and Dr. Onelio Garcia will provide you with the best options for your desired results and needs. 

Mommy Makeover surgery with Dr. Perez-Gurri in Miami, is an ideal procedure many mothers have taken advantage of to remove unwanted signs of childbearing. The Mommy Makeover combines several procedures into one operation to help a woman regain her pre-baby body.

Breast Reduction Results

The new size, shape, and weight of your breasts will be evident as soon as you are out of surgery. You will be wearing a surgical bra during your breast reduction recovery , and dressings to protect the incisions . Dr. Perez-Gurri or Dr. Garcia will remove dressings two days after your breast reduction , and replace them with new ones that will come off on their own.

 You will need to wear the bra for at least four weeks until the swelling of the breasts has subsided. The outcome of a breast reduction is beautifully shaped breasts that are significantly less heavy on the chest, relieve pain, discomfort, and the dissatisfaction that come along with excessively large breasts.

Miami Breast Reduction FAQ

Breast reduction requires an “anchor” incision (also known as an inverted-T incision) that runs around the nipple/areolar complex and extends straight down from the six o’clock position until it meets the inframammary fold. The incision then extends laterally along the inframammary fold. Through these incisions, excess glandular tissue and skin can be removed. The remaining tissues and skin are redistributed and reshaped.

As with any surgical procedure, breast reduction surgery can have some risks and complications, which may include:

Visible scars
Loss of breast or nipple tissue
Altered nipple/skin sensation
Contour irregularities
Inability to breastfeed
Fat necrosis

General anesthesia is administered during the surgery.

Your breasts may heal with scar tissue that can become calcified and mimic an abnormality. You should let your radiologist know about your breast surgery so that he or she can take it into consideration.

Although breast reduction results are designed to last for a long time, patients who follow a healthy lifestyle are more likely to experience a better outcome. Unfortunately, this procedure cannot halt the aging process, and the effects of gravity and aging can alter the appearance of the breasts over time.

Patients can return home following their surgery. A surgical bra should be worn for the first few days. During the recovery process, it is recommended to wear a sports bra and bras without underwire. For the first 24 to 48 hours, patients may experience some pain and tightness. The next day, patients will return for a follow-up visit. Steri-Strip™ Skin Closures or small tapes will be used to close the incisions. The closures will fall off by themselves within 10 to 14 days. Most patients can return to work and can drive their car within seven days. If your job requires strenuous activity, you may need up to three weeks to recover. Exercise can be continued after six weeks. It is important that patients are aware that not everyone heals the same; each patient will recover at her own pace.

There will be some scarring associated with breast reduction surgery; however, with proper care, incisions should fade and become less noticeable.
