About Breast Reduction Surgery

Excessively large breasts can create physical and social issues for women. Furthermore, extremely large breasts can lead to insecurity issues and overall embarrassment, as well as neck and back pain. Dr. Fara Movagharnia is a plastic surgeon in Atlanta, GA who has helped countless women regain their confidence and enjoy the life they want through a cosmetic breast reduction. This plastic surgery at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery removes excess breast tissue and skin to re-contour the breasts to a more normal size. It also reconstructs the size of the areolas and nipples and moves them so they appear natural with the new breast shape. In most situations, a breast lift can be implemented to provide a more taut and healthier appearance.

Ideal Candidates

If you suffer from large, heavy breasts that interfere with everyday life, a surgical breast reduction may be what you need to achieve the silhouette you want. Breast reduction is ideal for women who deal with stress and emotional anxiety or are not able to live a fulfilled and active life because of the heaviness of their breasts. If you also have consistent skin rashes or irritations (as well as back pain), breast reduction surgery can greatly diminish these medical conditions. It's crucial that patients are at a stable weight and choose a skillful surgeon like Dr. Movagharnia who listens to their concerns and goals and has the training to create a normal and natural appearance.

Surgical Technique

Surgical breast reduction is an outpatient procedure and is conducted with the patient under general anesthesia. The time frame for the surgery depends on various factors, including the incision type, the general surgical technique, and, finally, the amount of tissue removal needed. The areola and nipple area repositioning is another factor. Typically, liposuction is used for tissue and fat reduction to reduce the breast size. At the time of the initial consult, all of these aspects are addressed with Dr. Movagharnia. The issue surrounding scarring is also carefully examined and talked through as it is likely to occur. However, modern techniques have led to a significant decrease in the visibility of scarring. Based on the difficulty of the size and overall reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be made. Breast fat and tissue will then be removed, and the surrounding skin and tissue will be pulled and lifted.

What to Expect

Once surgery has been completed, our patients will be monitored closely in our quiet recovery room and then sent home to begin the healing process. A thin tube for draining is usually inserted near the incision area to assist with bleeding. A compression bra will be worn for a few days that will increase blood circulation to the breasts during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will naturally fall into position and the post-surgery effects will go away. Most of our patients at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery say they don't feel as weighed down and they have more confidence. Following surgical breast reduction, you can enjoy the clothes you so desire and feel excited with your new figure. Keep in mind it is important to maintain a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not compromised.
