Breast Reduction

Deigni Plastic Surgery helps women eliminate pain and discomfort by performing breast reductions. Houston area women trust Dr. Deigni to give them more proportionately sized breasts.

Breast reduction removes unwanted fat, tissue, and skin to give you smaller breasts. Many patients seek breast reduction to ease the pain they regularly feel in their back and upper body. Years of supporting heavy, oversized breasts can create persistent pain. Generally, the sooner a woman reduces her breast size, the better.

Perhaps you don’t experience pain but still have particularly large breasts that you feel are disproportionate to your overall body size. Breast reduction can give you breasts that are more in line with your body’s height, weight, and shape.

Who Are Good Candidates For Breast Reduction?

How is your overall health? Often, candidates for breast reduction are looking to have smaller breasts so that it will be less of a struggle for them to exercise comfortably. Typically, you’ll find that sports and other physical activities like dancing are easier on your body after the surgery.

However, to qualify for the procedure, you must already be in generally good shape. Massive obesity will usually disqualify a person from surgery. On the other hand, if you’re planning to pursue a major weight-loss program, the doctor may want to wait until you’ve reached your target weight before proceeding with the breast reduction.

During and after surgery, the blood needs to be able to clot effectively, so any blood disorder that interferes with clotting is likely to prevent surgery. Similarly, any condition that makes wounds heal slower than normal would be of concern. Heart ailments are of concern as they usually are with any surgery.

What qualifies as large breasts may differ from person to person, but there are some overall characteristics that are common among candidates for breast augmentation. Many will cite a history of dealing with tender shoulders, a sore neck, and an aching back. Evidence of shoulder irritation is often deep grooves carved into the flesh by heavily burdened bra straps. Others may have skin underneath their breasts that remains irritated.

It’s common for patients to report that they find it too difficult to find attractive clothing that they can wear. Others tell of insecurity and self-consciousness due to their breast size.

The patient must be an adult so that both the patient and the doctor can be sure that the breasts have completed their development. Mothers who are breastfeeding need to wait until their children are weaned.

Conditions That Breast Reduction Doesn’t Correct

Unfortunately, breast reduction doesn’t stop the aging process. Sagging often comes with aging. In most cases, smaller breasts may not sag as severely as larger breasts, however, some sagging is natural.

Dr. Deigni will be interested in why you’re seeking breast reduction and what you hope to achieve with the procedure. He will give you a realistic view of what you can expect.

The doctor will examine your breasts for not only their size and shape but also their density and the condition of the skin. He will want to be confident that your skin has enough elasticity to adjust to the procedure and keep a smooth appearance.

Be candid with the doctor and tell him of any significant medical issues or conditions. Your conversation should include your surgical history, family cases of breast cancer, drug allergies, and problems with substance abuse.

The doctor wants to see your blood pressure and other vitals as well as laboratory values within a normal range. He also will insist that you stop smoking and stop taking common over-the-counter pain medications that can slow blood clotting.

You will need to stop smoking and taking any drugs that reduce your blood’s clotting speed. Such drugs include common anti-inflammatories and aspirin. Take steps to remain as healthy as possible. The doctor may ask you to keep your weight in check so don’t binge on unhealthy junk foods, and try to keep a regular bedtime routine.

The surgeon will make an incision and then remove enough fat, tissue, and skin to reduce your breasts to their desired size. The amount of material removed from your breasts will likely differ. The doctor will aim to make the breasts match in both size and shape. Next, the nipple and its areola are put in their new positions. It’s necessary to move them so that they won’t sit too low on the now-smaller breasts. The doctor may also reduce the size of the areola if it’s the wrong scale for your new breasts.

You can expect some amount of swelling. This may make it difficult for you to judge the new size of your breasts. In time, the new size will become apparent as the swelling reduces over the next few weeks.

You’ll most likely feel some initial discomfort. If you need pain medication, the doctor will prescribe a safe med that won’t interfere with the healing process.

It’s essential that you follow instructions carefully. For example, resist the urge to resume your regular schedule of activities before receiving the doctor’s approval. You’ll also want to wear whatever post-surgical garments Dr. Deigni recommends.

The doctor will explain the safe ways to bathe and sleep without irritating the surgical sites.
