BREAST REDUCTION

WHAT IS BREAST REDUCTION?

A mammaplasty, or “breast reduction,” is a procedure done to remove skin, fat, and glandular tissue from the breast. By removing excess tissue, the breast’s shape is improved, and the breast’s size is reduced. This provides both aesthetic improvements and relieves some of the neck, back, and shoulder pain that women with large breasts can struggle with.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?

A typical breast reduction surgery takes roughly 2-3 hours to perform and involves different techniques. The exact procedure will depend on your specific needs. These can be discussed during your initial appointment with Dr. Polynice. During your visit, Dr. Polynice will walk you through your options and share recommendations. Your procedure will be personalized for you to ensure you get the optimal size and shape you desire.

BENEFITS OF BREAST REDUCTION

Opting for plastic surgery can have many benefits. While an improvement in physical appearance is a major factor, the benefits don’t stop there. This procedure can also:

  • Result in less neck, back, and shoulder pain.
  • Make clothing feel more comfortable.
  • Reduce chafing and irritation.
  • Improve the symmetry of your body.
  • Improve your exercise experience.
  • End social embarrassment.
