Breast Reduction

About Breast Reduction Surgery

Abnormally large breasts can create social, functional, and physical setbacks for women. Furthermore, uneven and very large breasts can lead to self-confidence issues and overall embarrassment, as well as back and neck pain. Dr. Jules Walters is a plastic surgeon in New Orleans, LA, who continues to help countless women regain their confidence and feel more comfortable through surgical reduction of the breasts. This aesthetic surgery at the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa removes excess breast fat and skin as well as unhealthy tissue to redefine and reshape the breasts to a smaller and healthier size. Breast reduction surgery also reshapes the size of the nipples/areolas and moves them so they are symmetrical with the new size. A breast lift is also implemented to produce a more taut and younger-looking appearance.

Ideal Candidates

If you are challenged with heavy and overly large breasts that create obstacles in your everyday life, cosmetic breast reduction may be what you need to get the body you wish for. Breast reduction is helpful for women who experience frustration and worry or find it difficult to live a fulfilled and active life because of the weight of their breasts. If you also deal with consistent skin issues (as well as back or neck pain), breast reduction surgery can eliminate these medical conditions. It’s crucial that patients are at a normal weight and choose a trained surgeon like Dr. Walters, who listens to their desired outcome and has the aptitude for creating a pleasing and natural appearance.

Surgical Technique

Surgical breast reduction is an outpatient process conducted with the patient under general anesthesia. The timing of surgery depends on many factors, including the complexity of the incision, the general reduction technique, and, finally, how much reduction is required. The areola and nipple area repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is incorporated for fat and tissue elimination to reduce the breast size. All of these aspects are addressed during the private consultation with Dr. Walters. The potential for scarring is also scrupulously examined and discussed as it is likely to occur. However, surgical skill and advanced techniques have led to a noticeable reduction in the visibility of scarring. Based on the intricacy of the size and overall reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be incorporated. Breast fat and tissue will then be removed, and the existing skin and tissue will be pulled tight and secured.

What To Expect

Once surgery has been completed, you will be monitored closely in our comfortable recovery facility and then discharged home to begin the healing process. A small, tube-like draining device is usually inserted near the incision area to reduce bleeding and swelling. A compression bra will be put in place for a few days that will boost blood circulation to the breasts during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will position themselves and settle, and the post-surgery effects will dissipate. The vast majority of our patients say they feel more weightless, lighter, and more reassured. Following surgical breast reduction, you can enjoy the clothes you could not wear before and feel enthusiastic about your new appearance. Keep in mind that it is important to maintain a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not affected negatively.
