Breast Reduction Procedure Description

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, while intact, is moved to the desired location and excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed. The areola can also be reduced by removing skin around the perimeter to complement the reduced breast size. The breast reduction procedure, also known as “reduction mammoplasty”, is done under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Occasionally, liposuction is performed with our breast reduction in Seattle procedure to eliminate some portion of excess fat.

Dr. Egrari uses a highly advanced liposuction device that reduces discomfort and any negative side effects from the procedure. After sufficient tissue and fat have been removed, sutures are placed deep within the breast tissue to provide support for the weight of the breasts. The incision is then closed, and you will rest for a period in our luxurious recovery suite prior to returning home. In some cases, only a vertical incision is necessary for breast reduction. The innovative technique of “free nipple graft” is appropriate for women who have excessively large and pendulous breasts.

Recuperation And Healing After Breast Reduction Surgery

  • The incisions are covered with light dressing, and the breasts are placed in a bra. The bra holds the breasts comfortably during initial healing and helps to keep all the tissues firmly in place during recovery.
  • Occasionally, drains are used for the first 24 hours.
  • Initial discomfort subsides daily and can be controlled with oral medication.
  • Scars will fade tremendously in 6 to 12 months. A total scar control program will be presented to all patient undergoing this operation.
  • Breast reduction surgery will probably reduce the ability to breastfeed.

What To Expect After Breast Reduction Surgery

Many women report almost immediate relief from discomfort or pain in their back, neck, and shoulders.

Your posture will likely improve with the removal of additional weight on your chest, further alleviating discomfort and chronic pain. Bras and other clothing will fit better and accentuate your newly-balanced figure. It has been commonly observed that women who undergo breast reduction tend to exercise more, feel good about themselves, eat better, and ultimately lose more weight.

Other Treatment Options With Breast Reduction

An additional procedure that enhances results is liposuction of the axillary area to reduce excess fatty areas around the breasts. Liposuction for breast reduction has been widely debated in medical circles. Generally, this is not the standard of care and should not be employed as the primary method of reducing breast size.
