Breast Reduction RESULTS

What is A Breast Reduction?

Breast Reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size and volume of the breasts. It involves the removal of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a more proportionate and balanced breast size in relation to the body.
During the procedure, an incision is made around the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple) and may extend vertically down to the breast crease or horizontally along the breast crease. Dr. Chahin then removes the excess tissue and repositions the nipple and areola to a higher position for a more youthful appearance. If necessary, the areola size can also be reduced. The remaining breast tissue is reshaped and contoured to achieve the desired size and shape.

What is the process?

The process involves a consultation with Dr. Fadi Chahin, anesthesia, incisions to remove excess tissue and reshape the breasts, and repositioning the nipples. The goal is to achieve a more comfortable and proportionate breast size and contour.

Benefits of Breast Reduction

Alleviation of Physical Discomfort

Women with overly large breasts often experience chronic pain, discomfort, and strain on the neck, shoulders, and back. Breast reduction surgery can significantly reduce or even eliminate these physical symptoms, providing relief and improving overall comfort.

Improved Posture

Large breasts can contribute to poor posture and an unbalanced alignment of the spine. By reducing the size and weight of the breasts, breast reduction surgery can help improve posture, resulting in a more balanced and aligned body position.

Increased Physical Activity

Engaging in physical activities and exercises can be challenging for women with large breasts. Breast reduction surgery can enable individuals to participate in sports, workouts, and other physical activities with greater ease and comfort, leading to a more active and healthier lifestyle.

Enhanced Clothing Options

Women with excessively large breasts often struggle to find well-fitting clothes that accommodate their bust size. Breast reduction surgery can make it easier to find clothing that fits properly, expands fashion choices, and enhances self-confidence in personal style and appearance.

Relief from Skin Problems

Large breasts can cause skin irritation, rashes, and infections in the folds beneath the breasts. By reducing the size of the breasts, breast reduction surgery can alleviate these issues, allowing for better hygiene and reducing the likelihood of skin problems.

Improved Body Proportions

Breast reduction surgery aims to create a more balanced and proportionate body shape. By reducing the size of the breasts, it can enhance the overall harmony between the breasts, torso, and other body features, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Procedure Timeline
The first step is to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Chahin. During this appointment, you will discuss your goals, medical history, and any concerns you may have. Dr. Chahin will evaluate your breast size, shape, and overall health to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Once you have decided to proceed with breast reduction surgery, you will undergo pre-operative preparations. This may include additional medical tests, such as blood work and imaging studies, to ensure you are in good health for the surgery. Dr. Chahin will provide instructions on medication management, dietary restrictions, and lifestyle modifications leading up to the procedure.

On the day of the surgery, you will arrive at the surgical facility. The surgical team will prepare you for the procedure and administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort. All necessary markings are made prior to surgery, while the patient is in the upright position. Dr. Chahin will make the incisions and remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin, and reshape the breasts to achieve the desired size and contour. The procedure typically takes a 4-5 hours, depending on the complexity.

After the surgery, you will be taken to a recovery area to wake up from anesthesia and be closely monitored by the medical team. You may experience some pain, swelling, and discomfort during the initial recovery period. Pain medication and instructions on post-operative care will be provided to manage your comfort and promote healing.
You will have several post-operative appointments with Dr. Chahin to monitor your healing progress and address any concerns. These appointments typically occur in the weeks following the surgery. Dr. Chahin will provide guidance on wound care, pain management, and activity restrictions during the recovery period.

Am I a suitable candidate for breast reduction surgery?
Good candidates for breast reduction surgery are individuals with disproportionately large breasts that cause physical discomfort, such as neck and back pain, skin irritation, difficulty finding well-fitting clothes, and self-esteem issues. Women can also choose to reduce the size of their breasts for aesthetic reasons and not necessarily have all the same ailments. It is important to have realistic expectations and be in good overall health before considering the procedure.
Will breast reduction surgery leave noticeable scars?
Breast reduction surgery does involve incisions, which will result in scars. However, Dr. Chahin makes incisions in inconspicuous areas and uses techniques to minimize scarring. He primarily utilizes the aesthetically oriented superior pedicle technique for breast reduction which often times offers patients shorter scars and a significantly better shape to the breast. Over time, scars tend to fade and become less noticeable. He will provide instructions on scar management to help promote optimal healing.
