Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast-Reduction-SurgeryBreasts that are too large can cause women back, shoulder, and neck pain, breathing and circulation problems, as well as general discomfort. These problems can keep from pursuing many physical activities and may also increase feelings of embarrassment or self-consciousness. Breast reduction surgery reduces the amount of skin, fat, and tissue in the breast, producing a more proportionate bust, providing greater freedom, and increasing feelings of self-confidence.

Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast reduction surgery is performed using anchor-shaped incision made around the areola, along the natural crease under the breast and vertically in between. After the incision is made, Dr. Talbott removes excess fat, tissue, and skin from the lower breast area. Next, the nipple and areola are moved to a higher and more natural position. The remaining skin is tightened and sutured in its new place, resulting in a more proportionately sized and pleasing-shaped breast. The entire process takes a few hours and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.

Recovery from Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery recovery is a long process, but well worth it for those who suffer from intense head, neck, and back pain. Some swelling, bruising, and general pain is normal after breast reduction surgery. Dr. Talbott can prescribe pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort. Bruising should improve a few weeks after surgery, and patients are usually able to return to work around the same time. Following all post-operative instructions given by Dr. Talbott can help promote a quicker and more successful recovery.

Dr. Talbott is a true artist in her field. She also was very genuine and caring before, during, and after my breast reduction surgery. The results far exceeded my expectations. I had no pain after surgery. Her well trained staff had excellent customer service skills which was the reason I originally chose her office. I am delighted with the surgery outcome. -K.W.
