Breast Reduction Orlando: Live More Comfortably and Boost Your Confidence
Breast reduction surgery (also known as reduction mammaplasty) will alleviate discomfort and make your breasts smaller, firmer and more in proportion with your body. Without the excessive weight of enlarged breasts (aka macromastia), you may also find greater enjoyment in playing sports and engaging in physical activity.
Many women also seek Dr. Rotatori for breast reduction on a single breast to achieve better symmetry and an easier fit for many clothes.
What to Expect with Breast Reduction Surgery
Dr. Rotatori performs breast reduction surgery in Orlando on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, either at a surgery center or hospital. The average breast reduction surgery takes anywhere between 3 to 5 hours. Incisions are made around the pigmented area (the nipple-areola complex) and extend vertically below the nipple and in the fold under the breast. The nipple-areola complex is moved upward to the desired location and excess breast tissue, fat and skin are removed.
What You Need to Know About Breast Reduction Recovery
After breast reduction treatment, your incisions are covered with light dressings and you will go home in a bra that holds the breasts symmetrically during initial healing. Early discomfort subsides daily and can be controlled with oral medication. Depending on the type of work you do, it may be possible for you to return to work within just a couple of weeks.
Scars will usually fade in six to 12 months. Note that breast reduction surgery will probably reduce and possibly eliminate the ability to breastfeed.
Are You a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?
Wondering if breast reduction surgery is right for you? Breast reduction Orlando surgery is meant for women who have large breasts that cause chronic pain in the back, neck and/or shoulders. It is very successful if you feel self-conscious about your breasts for any reason. What’s most important at our office is that you don’t need a reason. If you just want to be the best version of yourself, you’ve found the right cosmetic surgeon.
