What is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure in which excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed to reduce the overall breast size. The aim of breast reduction is to create more proportionally sized breasts and improve discomfort associated with the weight of large breasts, including neck, back, and shoulder pain.

Incision options for breast reduction surgery include:

  • Circular pattern around the areola
  • Keyhole-shaped pattern with an incision around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease
  • Inverted T or anchor-shaped pattern

Incision lines do create visible and permanent scars; however, they are well-concealed beneath a bra or bathing suit. During your breast reduction, the areola may also be reduced if necessary. 

What are the Benefits of Sarasota Breast Reduction Surgery?

While large breasts can cause physical ailments and emotional distress, breast reduction surgery can offer relief from this burden. Breast reduction improves the breasts’ appearance by removing excess tissue to make the breasts smaller and reduce neck, back, and shoulder pain.

The results of breast reduction surgery are long-lasting. Your new breast size and body proportions will relieve physical pain and activity limitations while boosting your self-confidence.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Breast Reduction in Sarasota?

Excessive breast tissue can get in the way of the active lifestyle you desire. Large breasts can cause not only physical pain and discomfort but also mental, emotional, and self-image issues.

What Can I Expect During a Breast Reduction in Sarasota?

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure that will take place at an accredited surgical center under general anesthesia. While each breast reduction plan is unique to its respective patient, several general steps happen as a part of any surgical facelift procedure:

You will meet with Dr. Hamwi and your anesthesia provider approximately an hour before your scheduled procedure.

Once you are safely anesthetized, Dr. Hamwi will begin your breast reduction procedure by creating incisions in your breast as outlined during your consultation.

After the incisions are made, the nipple is repositioned, and underlying tissue is removed, lifted, and reshaped.

The incisions will bring together your skin to reshape your smaller breasts. The sutures may be placed deep within breast tissues to support your newly-shaped breasts.

After your breast reduction procedure, dressings will be applied, and you may be outfitted in compression garments to support the breasts and minimize swelling.

Once you have woken up from the surgery, you can return home with the help of a friend or family member. It may take two to six weeks for a full recovery from breast reduction surgery.
