Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin. This procedure will help you to achieve a breast size that is proportional to the rest of your body.
Not only can large breasts cause extreme discomfort, but they can also cause health, emotional, and self-image problems. These are the main reasons why women seek out breast reduction surgery. It should be noted that you can also combine breast reduction surgery with liposuction.
We will first administer you anesthesia. Next, we will make an incision by using a circular pattern around the areola. Although the incision lines will scar, we will conceal them. Our expert surgeons will do everything that they can to make the incision minimal.
Your Doctor May Recommend Breast Reconstruction Surgery
Our doctors may recommend breast reconstruction surgery after you receive a mastectomy. If your results stated that you have breast cancer, or you are at high risk for cancer cell development in the future, breast reconstruction might be the solution you are looking for. When receiving breast reconstruction surgery, we will rebuild your affected breast or breasts. We are proud to assist patients in Chicagoland and the surrounding communities.
Breast reconstruction procedures create a breast shape by using an artificial implant or a flap of tissue that we take from another area in your body. It is important to understand that while breast reconstruction will help to rebuild and shape the breast, it will not restore the sensation in the breast or the nipple. Over time, though, the skin over the reconstruction will be more sensitive to the touch.
We’ll Develop Your Treatment Plan
We understand that losing a breast can leave you feeling anxious, uncertain, and sad. We will sit down with you during a private consultation to discuss your goals. During this meeting we will develop a treatment plan that sees that the cancerous cells are fully removed.
Our staff will be here to support you every step of the way. If you have any questions before or after surgery, we are more than happy to answer them. We want you to feel confident and safe when you are with us.
