There are several reasons why you might be interested in a breast reduction. This might result from changes in body composition after pregnancy or significant weight loss. At the same time, the natural processes of aging can also cause your breasts to sag, and minor chronic back problems have sometimes been attributed to large breast size.
One effective way to address any of these issues is to have your surgeon, Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD, perform a breast reduction. The procedure is designed to remove a modest amount of mammary tissue and skin from each of your breasts. This will effectively reduce their size and lift the breast. If you would like, an incision strategy can also be employed to adjust the size, shape and location of your areola.
The incision strategy Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD uses will be influenced by the initial size of your breasts and the degree of reduction you would like performed.
Quality preparation and aftercare are very important to having a speedy recovery after a breast reduction. Let Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD know about any preexisting medical conditions you have or medications you are taking. You should also plan to take some time off of work and avoid strenuous activities for at least a week following the breast reduction.
The breast reduction surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis. Since you will be fully sedated, you will need to have someone drive you home from the appointment.
You will need to abstain from eating or drinking after midnight the day before the procedure. It’s also a good idea to dress in loose-fitting clothes to help make dressing and moving easier afterward.
If a significant amount of tissue or skin is removed, Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD might insert a drainage tube to help remove any blood from the area. If this is the case, she will give you instructions to clean and maintain it.
