What does a breast reduction help with?

Living with overly large breasts can cause a physical and emotional strain that many people don’t understand. Dr. Wright has witnessed the many ways in which breast reduction has improved his patients’ lives. It can help patients:

  • Relieve physical problems such as back, shoulder, and neck pain and skin irritation
  • Enjoy a wider range of physical activities
  • Feel more confident
  • Enjoy more clothing options
  • Sleep more comfortably

After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women combine breast reduction with a tummy tuck and liposuction. These combination procedures, often called mommy makeovers, address multiple concerns with a single surgery and recovery period.

How is breast reduction performed?

Dr. Wright performs breast reduction as an outpatient procedure using general anesthetic. Using incisions similar to breast lift surgery, he removes excess glandular tissue and fat from the breasts, reshapes and repositions the areolas, tightens the breast skin around the new more compact shape and removes the excess. Once complete, he sutures the incisions closed.

How long is recovery after a breast reduction?

Breast reduction patients are usually ready to return to work and non-strenuous activities in 1 to 2 weeks. After surgery, you will need to wear a supportive bra to minimize swelling and support the breasts while they heal. Most patients can manage any discomfort by taking the pain medication Dr. Wright prescribes or over-the-counter pain relievers.
