Who Makes a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?

How is a Breast Reduction Surgery in Phoenix Performed?

A Phoenix breast reduction surgery may take anywhere from 3 to 5 hours and will be at a surgeon’s center or accredited hospital. An overnight stay for your surgery is not necessary as it is an outpatient procedure. The procedure requires three incisions. After the removal of extra skin, tissue and fat, the nipple and areola require repositioning at a higher level. The size of the areola can also be reduced. Skin from above the nipple is brought together under it and the breasts are reshaped. The contours of the arm may also be enhanced using liposuction.

Your Phoenix surgeon will use a surgical marker to mark the sites of the incisions. This is imperative because when you lie down on the operating table, your breasts will change shape.

The surgeon then continues to remove extra tissue and fat using a scalpel or cautery instrument depending on your desired size. If you have asymmetrical breasts, more tissue will be removed from one breast to achieve symmetry. The rest of the tissue and fat is then reshaped into a youthful shape. The nipple and areola are also moved to a higher position on the breast.

The incisions are finally closed with sutures that are deep in the tissue layers and some on the surface of the skin as well. It is the goal of your Phoenix surgeon that you achieve your desired results you are looking for from your Phoenix reduction mammaplasty surgery and that your surgery is as easy and comfortable as possible.

Knowing your Breast Reduction Options

Once your desire for surgery is clear and your surgeon knows the size and shape you want, they will be able to choose the best option for you. Depending on these factors, it may be possible to avoid the horizontal or vertical incisions running from the areola to the crease of the breasts. In cases of very large breasts, your Phoenix surgeon may have to completely detach the areola and nipple before positioning it higher on the reshaped breasts. Although this is very rare, you will be informed of this situation, as you may lose sensation in the nipples and the ability to breast-feed. For some women, it may be possible to reduce their breasts by getting a liposuction surgery performed.
