What is a Breast Reduction?

Oversized breasts can create social, functional, and physical challenges for women. Additionally, extremely large breasts can lead to self-image issues and embarrassment, as well as physical pain. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin has helped countless women regain their confidence and feel more comfortable through breast reduction surgery. This aesthetic surgery at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery in Brea and Beverly Hills, CA helps to reduce excess fat, tissue, and skin to reshape the breasts into a smaller and healthier size. Breast reduction surgery also reconstructs the size of the nipples/areolas and moves them so they are symmetrical with the new size. In most situations, a breast lift can also be performed to produce a more taut and youthful appearance.

Do I qualify for a breast reduction?

If you have extremely large, heavy breasts that get in the way of your everyday life, then a surgical breast reduction may be a good option to help you attain the body you want. Breast reduction is often an effective procedure for women who deal with stress or emotional anxiety or find it difficult to live an active life because of the size of their breasts. If you also have consistent skin rashes, irritations, or back pain, this surgery may help to reduce these annoyances and improve your quality of life. It's crucial that patients be at at a healthy, stable weight. Dr. Corbin is skilled in producing a natural appearance to suit the patient's desired outcome.

How Breast Reduction is Performed 

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and is conducted with general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery depends on a variety of factors, including the complexity of the incision, the general surgical technique, and the degree of reduction. Repositioning the nipple and areola will also be a factor. In most cases, liposuction is used for tissue and fat reduction in order to decrease breast size. During your private consultation, Dr. Corbin will discuss all of these aspects with you. He'll also discuss the possibility of scarring, which commonly occurs. However, surgical skill and advanced methods have led to a decrease in the visibility of scarring. Depending on the difficulty of the reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight-line (vertical) incision will be used. Breast fat and tissue will be removed, and the remaining tissue and skin will be tightened.

What to Expect After Breast REduction

Once surgery has been completed, we'll observe you closely in our comfortable recovery area and then discharge you home to heal. A small, tube-like draining device is usually placed near the incision area to assist with swelling and bleeding. You'll need to wear a medical sports bra for a few days to help increase blood flow to your breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, your breasts should settle, and the post-surgery side effects should dissipate. After breast reduction surgery, many patients report feeling much lighter and more confident to wear the clothes they desire. Remember that it's important to maintain a healthy weight so as not to compromise the results.
