Is Breast Reduction Right for Me?
Oversized breasts can impact nearly every aspect of your life. Breast reduction has one of the highest satisfaction rates of any plastic surgery procedure. It alleviates the physical and psychological effects of oversized breasts, and can help to improve your posture, explore new fashions and enjoy a more active lifestyle.
Breast reduction surgery may be an ideal solution for you if you experience the following due to the size and weight of overly large breasts:
- Back pain
- Shoulder and neck pain
- Discomfort from bra straps digging into your skin
- Restricted activity
- Anger or embarrassment over unwanted attention
Dr. Miller understands the hardships that oversized breasts can impose on your daily life. The best way to determine if breast reduction surgery is right for you is to meet personally with Dr. Miller in a comprehensive initial consultation.
During your consultation, Dr. Miller will work to understand your specific goals and concerns, evaluate your physical condition and determine if breast reduction is right for you. There is not necessarily a perfect age to get breast reduction surgery, but you should not undergo this procedure until your breasts are fully developed.
The Breast Reduction Procedure
During the breast reduction procedure, Dr. Miller will use a blended approach that uses liposuction and other techniques to remove excess fat and skin from the breasts. The breast is then reshaped to achieve an elegant, natural-looking appearance. Your natural frame, unique goals and the recommendation of Dr. Miller will help to determine the specifics of your procedure and expected outcome. All of these issues will be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Miller.
While breast reduction scars can be extensive, Dr. Miller will take every measure to ensure your postoperative scarring is as minimal and discreet as possible. The scars may remain red for months, and will gradually fade over time. Fortunately, incisions can be placed so that you can wear even low-cut tops. Smokers tend to have a harder time with scarring.
After your breast reduction, your breasts will be smaller and lifted. It may take a few months to fully achieve your final results. Once your breasts have been surgically reduced, they will not return to their previous size.
Will My Nipples Lose Sensation?
Some patients may initially experience some loss of feeling in their nipples, but sensation typically returns in time.
Will Insurance Cover the Operation?
Some insurance policies cover breast reduction, but coverage depends on several factors. Generally, to be covered by insurance, the procedure must be deemed medically necessary because of severe pain and the potential of pain and suffering in the future.
