While most women are familiar with breast augmentation procedures to add implants and lift the breasts, breast reduction is often overlooked. Large breasts can have advantages and disadvantages. Unfortunately, for women who have naturally developed large breasts, this can be a burden in many ways. With breast reduction surgery, many women can find relief and enjoy smaller, more manageable breasts. Dr. Frank Ferraro of Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey offers Paramus, NJ area women solutions to large, uncomfortable breasts.
Why might a woman consider a breast reduction?
Some women feel as though their large breasts attract the wrong attention. They may experience difficulty in participating in certain activities because of the size of their breasts. Women also deal with frustration in finding clothing that fits properly, and may even deal with daily neck and back pain due to their size. This is often the point when a woman may seriously begin to consider the advantages of breast reduction surgery.
What is done during breast reduction surgery?
During breast reduction, Dr. Frank Ferraro removes excess breast tissue that contributes to the large size of the breasts. This is done equally on both breasts to ensure balance and symmetry. The incisions are made in the creases underneath the breast or along the areola to disguise the surgical scars left behind from the procedure. Patients can drop many bra sizes in just one visit to our practice with a single surgery.
What can a patient expect following surgery?
Dr. Frank Ferraro encourages women to ask questions not only about the procedure, but about what they can expect in terms of healing and recovery. Patients should closely follow the post-operative instructions to reduce the risk of infection and to speed recovery following surgery. Patients will also need to take time off of work, school, and other activities as they heal.
