A breast reduction procedure is often a godsend for women with large or sagging breasts, as it provides relief for back, neck, and shoulder pain while also reducing the amount of unwanted attention to the chest area. Women of all ages can undergo this procedure, which can be performed with a variety of different approaches.
The approach is often determined by “pedicles,” bundles of blood vessels that are responsible for keeping the breast alive. This creates different results in aesthetic appearance, and a consultation with Dr. Yunaev at Breast & Body Clinic will determine the best aesthetic results for you.
What Are the Benefits of a Breast Reduction?
Women with large breasts often experience chronic back, neck and shoulder pain along with restricted activity and some difficulty fitting into clothing and bras.
Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery see increased comfort in their day-to-day life as they are carrying less weight, fit into their wardrobe better, experience less pain and are more active with breasts that have a more youthful and perky appearance.
What Are Breast Reduction Surgery Options?
There are three different methods available for achieving a breast reduction. The best option for you will depend on your current breast size, shape, and the amount of skin or tissue to be removed. The best choice will also depend on the position of your nipples and the quality of your skin.
The options are:
- Wise Pattern: For moderate to substantial reductions, this technique creates an anchor-shaped scar that runs vertically down to the fold of the breast and across the natural curve.
- Vertical Scar: Most common in mild to moderate reductions.
- Round Block or Bennelli: This involves two circular incisions of different sizes to create a flat breast most suitable for small reductions.
In all of these methods, nipples and areolas retain their blood and nerve supply. Only in significant reductions are nipples removed entirely and repositioned, leaving no sensation or ability to breastfeed.
Dr. Yunaev feels that the best results are achieved with the anchor incision, which offers more control of the nipple position and creates an improved conical, youthful breast shape.
The Breast Reduction Using Liposuction
A liposuction style breast reduction lowers the chances of permanent scarring in the breasts while also decreasing the amount of pain and recovery time required. A breast reduction performed with liposuction can see a decrease in breast size from one to three cups. As Dr. Michael Yunaev is a highly qualified and experienced breast reduction surgeon, he will be able to confirm if this procedure is suitable for your situation, as well as your aesthetic goals.
