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.
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.

"68 year old woman, overweight and tired of being miserable - I am a 68 year old woman, over weight and tired of being miserable. I had suffered with large breast since middle school; my breast just kept getting larger and my back and neck always hurt. I was in a car accident in 2011, broke my back, neck, collar bone, ripped Rotator cuff and concussion. I went through many surgeries plus procedures to help the swelling in my neck. Needless to say but I put on weight and my breasts were getting bigger and bigger. I made up my mind to have a breast reduction and help with the migraines and back/neck pain. Dr Fara is wonderful, he fully explained the procedure and what he can do for me. I am ecstatic over my results. I love my new breast and I do mean love! Very happy. Dr. Fara is kind and has a great bedside manner too. Called everyday after the surgery to make sure I was good. I listened to him before the surgery and started my high protein diet and I was doing exactly as he needed for me to be a success. Day of surgery, his staff and nurses were fantastic. I am 5 weeks out and I feel great, the itching is controllable, the incisions are healing nicely. I have itty-bitty titties now. Yeah, Dr. Fara, you are a rock star. I saw the pictures of before the surgery and I almost cried. Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. Fara."- S. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2023

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.
