About Breast Reduction
What is breast reduction?
A breast reduction is a surgical procedure that aims to reduce the volume and size of overly large or heavy breasts. The surgeon makes strategic incisions around the breasts to trim away excess skin tissues, remove excess glandular and fat tissues, and reposition the nipples into a more attractive position on the breast mound. The final goal is to make the breasts lighter and restore optimal proportions with the body, which can also alleviate neck, back, and shoulder pain.
Breast reduction can correct the following:
- Excessively large and heavy breasts
- Overly large areolas
- Imbalanced or disproportionate breasts
- Chronic pain caused by heavy breasts
Candidates for a breast reduction:
- Have extremely large or heavy breasts and areolas
- Suffer from back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, or other issues because of heavy breasts
- May have trouble engaging in physical activities because of heavy breasts
- Want to achieve more proportionate and lighter breasts
- Have generally good physical and mental health
- Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before the breast reduction
- Have realistic expectations from the breast reduction surgery
Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized breast reduction technique
Dr. Lisiecki performs breast reduction surgery at his state-of-the-art surgical center under general anesthesia. The specific surgical technique used will depend on your unique goals and concerns. In some cases, the surgeon may perform simple liposuction to extract excess fat cells from the breasts and make them lighter. During liposuction, the surgeon makes a small incision to insert a hollow cannula and suction away excess fat cells until the patient achieves the ideal breast shape.
But most breast reduction patients need a more complex surgical procedure. Dr. Lisiecki may use an anchor or lollipop incision, depending on your unique needs. A lollipop incision is made around the areola and vertically down the lower part of the breast, and an anchor incision is added horizontally along the breast crease. After making the incisions, the surgeon may reduce excess skin tissues, remove excess glandular tissues, resize the areola, and elevate the nipples into a more attractive position on the breast mound.
