Breast Reduction

“My entire experience was great. All of the nurses and staff were so nice and calming. Dr. Alexander not only gave great advice but listened to what I wanted and made sure that was achieved in the best and safest way. Day of surgery he was very calming and made me feel very comfortable. The results were exactly what I wanted and I would absolutely recommend Dr. Alexander to all of my friends.”

Who Is A Candidate?

  • If you have large, heavy breasts, which may be the cause of breathing difficulties, back, shoulder and neck pain, poor posture, bra-strap indentations and chafing under the breasts.
  • If you have excessive breast size, which may decrease a sense of attractiveness and self-confidence.
  • If large breasts interfere with normal daily activities or with exercise.

Intended Results

  • More attractive contour and smaller breast size.
  • Freedom from health problems associated with excessively large breasts.
  • Improved self image.

The Procedure

  • Breast reduction is done under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis or in the hospital. Incisions are made around the pigmented area (the nipple-areolar complex) and extend vertically below the nipple and in the fold under the breast. The nipple-areolar complex is moved upward to the desired location; excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed.

Recuperation and Healing

  • The incisions are covered with light dressings.
  • Initial discomfort subsides daily and can be controlled with oral medication.
  • Scars will usually fade in 6-12 months.
  • Surgery will probably reduce and possibly eliminate, the ability to breast feed.

Other Options

An additional procedure that would enhance the result is Liposuction of the axillary area to reduce excess fat deposits.
