What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that reduces the size, weight, and shape of the breasts by removing excess fat and skin from the breast area. Breast reduction surgery comes with the following benefits:

  • Improved breast-to-body proportions.
  • Increased comfort in how one looks and feels.
  • Increased confidence.
  • Relief from back and shoulder pain.
  • Relief from discomfort while exercising.
  • Removal of excess skin and fat.

To consider your candidacy for breast reduction surgery, schedule a consultation with Sandel Duggal Plastic Surgery and MedSpa to discuss your needs.

How Does Breast Reduction Surgery Work?

Before considering the specific procedure methods to be used, Dr. Duggal will prioritize the patient’s situation, such as their current breast anatomy, the kind and amount of tissue needing to be removed, and the results they are seeking. Depending on these factors, the breast reduction surgery is carried out using either a “vertical pattern” or a “wise pattern” breast reduction.

After removing excess skin and reshaping the tissue inside the breasts, Dr. Duggal selectively removes unwanted fat. If necessary, she may rotate the nipples into a higher position and reduce the size of the areolas.

Depending on the patient’s requirements, liposuction may also be used for excess fat removal.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?

Candidates for the liposuction approach typically need a minor or moderate size reduction in their breast size. Skin elasticity and the absence of any sagging are essential for this approach to breast reduction. Those with sagging skin and more tissue desired for removal are better suited for the other procedures mentioned above.

What Results Can You Expect from Breast Reduction Surgery?

Following breast reduction surgery, breast shape and size changes may occur over the six months following surgery. Since the breasts are raised higher during the procedure, the scarring will remain hidden even though the crease below the breasts is also positioned higher. For a few months after the procedure, the breasts may appear asymmetrical and slightly larger than expected due to swelling.
