What is a Breast Reduction?

Large breasts can create social and functional challenges for women, insecurity issues and overall embarrassment, and pain in the neck and back. Plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang helps countless women rebuild their confidence and enjoy an active lifestyle through a cosmetic breast reduction. This procedure at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Duluth, GA removes excess fat, tissue, and skin to reshape the breasts to a more compatible size. Breast reduction surgery also reconstructs the size of the nipples and repositions them so they look natural with the new size. In most situations, a breast lift can be implemented to provide a more taut and younger-looking appearance in our Atlanta, GA patients.

What are the benefits of breast reduction?

Excess fat and tissue in the breasts can cause a number of problems, including neck and back pain, skin irritation, and problems with posture. In addition, very large breasts make it difficult to find clothes that fit properly. Breast reduction surgery alleviates these issues by removing the extra tissue. Patients work with Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery for breast reduction because our team is dedicated to providing proportional and natural-looking results. We also take into account the individual goals and concerns of each patient to help them achieve their desired outcome.

Can I Get a Breast Reduction?

Do you have heavy and overly large breasts that create obstacles in your everyday life? If so, a surgical breast reduction may be a good option to give you the body and look you desire. Breast reduction is ideal for women who experience emotional stress or find living an active life difficult because of the heaviness of their breasts. If you suffer from consistent skin inflammations or irritations, like back or neck pain, breast reduction surgery can greatly diminish these medical conditions. It is important that you are at a stable weight and choose an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Mang, who understands your aesthetic goals and has the knowledge to create a normal and natural appearance.

How is Breast Reduction Performed?

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure while you are under general anesthesia. The timing of surgery depends on many factors: the complexity of the incision, the overall surgical technique, and the amount of tissue removal needed. Your nipple and areola repositioning will also be a factor. For most patients, liposuction is used for fat removal to decrease breast size. During your consultation, all of these factors will be addressed with Dr. Mang. Scarring may be likely to occur so that will be discussed as well. However, Dr. Mang's surgical skill and his cutting-edge methods have led to a significant decrease in overall scarring. Depending on the difficulty of your reduction, either an anchor or a straight line (vertical) incision will be made. Your breast tissue will then be removed, and your remaining skin and tissue will be pulled tight and secured.

What Can I Expect After My Breast Reduction?

Once your breast reduction has been completed, you will be observed closely in our quiet recovery area and then discharged to continue healing in the comfort of your own home. A small, tube-like draining device will likely be inserted near the incision area to reduce swelling and bleeding. You will need to wear a compression bra for several days, which will improve blood circulation to your breasts during the initial healing period. After about a month or so, your breasts will naturally fall into position and post-surgery effects will diminish. Many of our Atlanta, GA patients at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery say they feel lighter, relieved, and more reassured following their breast reduction. You can experience the joy of buying clothes you once could not wear and feel confident with your sleek new look. Remember, it is still important to stay at a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not compromised.

Breast Reduction FAQs

Dr. Mangold can assess your candidacy during a consultation and help you make the best decision for your individual health.

Is breast reduction surgery covered by insurance?
