Breast Reduction in Miami, Florida
Do large breasts get in the way of your life? Many women elect to have a breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, to reduce both the physical and emotional discomfort caused by their experience with very large breasts.
Breast reduction removes excess skin, tissue and fat from the breasts making them smaller, firmer and in better proportion to the rest of your body. Breast reduction can also reduce the size of the areola to a more aesthetically appealing proportion. Smaller breast size and a more attractive contour can relieve related health problems as well as increase your self-confidence.
Women choosing breast reduction surgery often experience:
- Back, shoulder or neck pain
- Bra strap indentations in back
- Breathing difficulty
- Difficulty finding bras and clothes that fit
- Low self-esteem
- Poor posture
- Restriction in activities/exercise
- Skin rashes under the breast
Some men are also interested in reducing the size of their breasts. Commonly referred to as “man boobs,” gynecomastia is the over-development of breast tissue in men and can be corrected with cosmetic surgery.
At Pierini Esthetic Surgery in Miami, our board-certified plastic surgeons have the advanced education, training and experience to safely remove excess breast fat, tissue and skin in both men and women, achieving satisfying results.
What to expect from your breast reduction
Each breast reduction is highly individualized. During your consultation, our plastic surgeon will discuss all the surgical procedures available to you and recommend the best options to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Teenagers with large breasts may have breast reduction surgery, however it is better to wait until adulthood when the breasts are fully developed. Also, women who are considering pregnancy or are breast-feeding should postpone breast reduction surgery until their family is complete. You may also consider having a “mommy make-over” which includes: abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast augmentation or reduction (with or without a breast lift) and liposuction to create the best body contouring solution for you.
Breast reductions are often combined with a breast lifts, resulting in perkier, more proportionate breasts. Liposuction may also be used during a breast reduction to improve the shape and appearance of the breasts or remove fat from the armpit area. Patients often couple breast reductions with a tummy tuck and/or liposuction to obtain full body results.
A breast reduction is an effective and safe procedure performed in our onsite Florida registered outpatient surgery center in Miami. Because patient safety is Pierini Esthetic’s first priority, our board-certified plastic surgeon only performs breast reductions under general anesthesia and only with board-certified anesthesiologists.
There are various techniques used for breast reduction surgery which include:
Periareolar Incision – A circular incision is made around the areola to remove excess tissue.
Keyhole Incision – An incision is made around the areola and vertically down and underneath the crease of the breast.
Inverted T Incision – This anchor-shaped incision follows the breast’s natural contours and can remove most of the skin from the breast. It is recommended for women that have large, sagging breasts, often due to heredity, childbirth and breastfeeding or for women who have experienced a significant amount of weight loss.
After making the incision, our board-certified plastic surgeon removes extra tissue, fat and skin to reduce, lift and shape the breasts. If needed, the areola size is reduced, and the nipple and areola are moved to a higher position on the breast.
Patients receive a small drain to remove excess fluid and bandages are applied to the incisions. A support bra and elastic bandage is worn to reduce swelling and aid in the healing of the breasts. As you heal, the contours of your beautiful breasts will be revealed. Avoid heavy lifting and vigorous exercise for 4 to 6 weeks.
