What is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery fulfills three main goals:
- Alleviating chronic back and shoulder pain
- Creating better body proportions
- Increasing confidence and comfort with your body
Dr. Sands performs multiple techniques to correct these conditions and create results that fit your natural body shape.
How is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?
During breast reduction surgery, you will be made comfortable with general anesthesia in a state-of-the-art surgical center. Dr. Sands will carefully place incisions as discreetly as possible around the areola to remove excess fat, glandular tissue, and/or skin. Liposuction may also be utilized when necessary. Although some post-surgical scarring will be visible after your procedure, it will fade over time.
Dr. Sands will discuss your surgical plan during your consultation, including what technique will be used, where incisions will be placed, and what you can expect before and after the procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?
Women who are experiencing pain, discomfort, and self-consciousness due to the size of their breasts may be candidates for this procedure. During your consultation at our Metairie office, Dr. Sands will consider several factors including your health, medical history, expectations, and more to help you decide whether or not breast reduction surgery is right for you.
Unlike other surgeons in the area, Dr. Sands accepts most major insurance carriers and will work with you to get your procedure covered under your current plan.
What Can I Expect After Surgery?
A period of downtime and healing can be expected along with some swelling, bruising, and minor discomfort. Aftercare instructions will be provided for you to help reduce the risk of infection at your incision sites. Dr. Sands and our medical team will advise you on when you should be able to return safely to work and normal activities, and your progress and healing will be monitored through follow-up appointments.
After the healing process is complete, patients can expect a more proportional, comfortable size and fullness of their breasts.
