What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?


A breast reduction surgery is exactly what you need if you would like to reshape your breasts in order to make them smaller, firmer and lighter. Also known as reduction mammaplasty, this procedure is offered at Flores Plastic Surgery in Miami Florida. It is accomplished by removing excess fat, skin as well as glandular tissue. While large breasts are what some women want, in some cases, they can cause physical pain and emotional or social anxiety. After undergoing a Miami breast reduction, you may find that you are able to lead a healthier and more comfortable life. You will also enjoy a more beautiful and proportionate appearance.

There are various reasons why could consider undergoing a breast reduction in Miami FL. It could be because of neck, back or shoulder pain that is caused by heavy breasts.  It could also be due to sagging breasts that are produced by their large size, disproportionate body frame as a result of oversized breasts, and restriction to physical activity because of the size and weight of the breasts. You may also opt for   breast reduction surgery because of painful bra strap marks or rashes because of large breasts.

So what exactly happens during a breast reduction surgery? While techniques for this procedure vary, the most common procedure involves an incision that circles the areola and then goes down and follows  the natural curve under the breast. The plastic surgeon will then remove the excess fat, glandular tissue and skin. After that, the nipple and areola are repositioned to a higher position and then held in place using stitches. In some cases, liposculting alone can be used to reduce the size of your breasts.  You will determine the best procedure during your consultation.
