Breast Reduction Arlington

Breast reduction, known as reduction mammaplasty, is the removal of breast tissues. It is designed for women with large, pendulous breasts who experience a variety of medical problems caused by excessive weight and low center gravity of their breasts, ranging from back and neck pain and skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. Breast reduction surgery can also be performed on men who suffer from a condition called gynecomastia (enlargement of the male breasts).

The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to give the woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body.

The most common procedure to reduce the size of the breasts involves an anchor-shaped incision that circles the areola, extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. With this method, excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin are removed, and the nipple and areola are moved into their new position. Then the skin from both sides of the breast is brought down and around the areola, shaping the new contour of the breast.

Breast Reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure done under general anesthesia. The procedure takes approximately 3-4 hours. After surgery, you will be wrapped in a compression bandage. A small tube may be placed in each breast to drain out any blood and fluids, for a few days. The bandages will be removed about 2-3 days after surgery and then a surgical bra will be worn until the swelling and bruising subsides. Patients can return to work in about 2 weeks and must refrain from vigorous physical activity for 4 weeks.
