Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery in Scottsdale

Most women who undergo breast reduction in Scottsdale are extremely happy and satisfied with the results. Their breasts after surgery are smaller, firm, and proportionate to the rest of their bodies. The pain and discomfort is relieved leaving women free from various ailments. Neck and back pain together with posture issues are a common problem with large breasts and so is irritation of the skin. Additionally, due to heavy breasts, the straps of the bra leave painful indentations on the shoulders too. All these problems are solved quickly with a Scottsdale breast reduction surgery.

Is Breast Reduction Surgery Right For Me?

If you have had several pregnancies, are overweight, predisposed to large breasts that are disproportionate or have sensitivity to estrogen, then you may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery. Most large breasts are hereditary and breast reduction in Phoenix can help you reduce the size of your breasts and aid in fixing the issues that occur with large breasts.

How is a Breast Reduction in Phoenix Performed?

A breast reduction surgery in Phoenix takes about 3 to 5 hours and will take place in an accredited hospital or a surgical center. It is usually performed on an outpatient basis, which means you will not be required to stay overnight. There are 3 incisions that are made during the breast reduction surgery. Once the excessive skin, tissue and fat is removed, the areola and nipple require repositioning. The resizing of areolas may also have to be undertaken during surgery. Skin from above the areola is brought together below the breast to reshape it. The contours of the arm may be improved with the use of liposuction if combining the surgery with an arm lift.
A surgical marker is used to make marks for the incision sites on your skin. This is vital because the breasts change shape when you are lying on your back or on the operating table.

Depending on the desired breast size, a scalpel is used to remove the excessive skin and fat from the breasts. In case of asymmetrical breasts, the amount of skin and fat removed from one breast may vary from the other. The remaining skin and fat on the breast is then reshaped to give you a more youthful shape and the areola or nipple are repositioned higher on the breasts. The incisions on your breasts are then closed with sutures moving from the deep layers of the tissue to the superficial skin. The goal of the surgeon is to ensure you achieve your desired results in the easiest and most comfortable manner during the breast reduction surgery.

Which Breast Reduction Options are Right for You?

Your Scottsdale plastic surgeon can determine the best option for you depending on the shape and size of your breasts and the amount of breast reduction you desire. In some cases, the surgeon will be able to avoid the vertical incisions running from the areolar edge to the crease of the breasts, or the horizontal lines which run under the breasts. In case of extremely large breast size, it may be necessary to detach the areola and nipple before repositioning them higher. This may render your nipples without sensation and also result to the inability to breastfeed. For some women, mere liposuction may help with the desired Scottsdale breast reduction.
