Top Questions on Breast Reduction Surgery

Although breast augmentation surgery is still extremely popular, not every woman wants larger breasts! In fact, breast reduction surgery is one of the most popular procedures in the country today- and is performed for both medical and aesthetic purposes!

The decision to undergo any cosmetic surgery is highly-personal, and every patient should remember to ask plenty of questions prior to surgery. Let’s take a look at some common questions to ask your plastic surgeon before your reduction surgery.

Top Questions on Breast Reduction Surgery

  1. Am I a good candidate for breast reduction surgery? Breast reduction surgery is most commonly sought by women who are unhappy with overly large breasts. Very large breasts can often be uncomfortable, and will usually lead to severe back problems. In addition to being uncomfortable, many women can also suffer psychologically from having large breasts, which can lead to unwanted attention from others.
  2. How exactly will this procedure make my breasts smaller? Your breasts will be made smaller by the removal of fat, and glandular tissue from the breasts. This will produce smaller breasts that are in better proportion to your body, and feel more comfortable. This procedure is highly successful in helping patients look and feel more confident!
  3. How long will the procedure take to complete? Generally speaking, breast reduction surgery takes about two to three hours to complete. The procedure will be done under general anesthesia, usually in a hospital.
  4. Will I have scarring following this procedure? Your plastic surgeon will ensure that you experience as little scarring as possible. You may choose from several different breast reduction techniques, including vertical incision breast reduction, traditional breast reduction surgery, or scarless breast reduction. Traditional breast reduction surgery involves making an anchor-shaped incision, and is great for women with very large breasts! Vertical incision breast reduction, or the “short-scar” technique, are used on women who do not require a great deal of tissue removal. Scarless breast reduction surgery uses liposuction techniques, which means little or no scarring!

If you are considering breast reduction surgery, it is important to speak to an experienced plastic surgeon, who will ensure that you receive the best results possible!
