Breast Reduction Procedure in Miami
When women with overly large breasts feel pain and discomfort, particularly in their back, a breast reduction surgery is most likely the best solution. Men with gynecomastia, also known as man boobs, should visit our page on Male Breast Reduction for information. Apart from the bad posture and pain, women with very large breasts often feel self- conscious and unhappy with their appearance. In our Miami office, we can restore proper body proportion and eliminate your back pain. After receiving breast reduction, women report feeling a huge weight off their shoulders both physically and emotionally. Patients also report this surgery to be well worth its cost because it truly gives relief and satisfaction.
The goal of breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty as it is technically known, is to remove breast tissue and lift the breast. Keeping nipple sensitivity and a natural appearance are priorities in reduction surgery. In some cases a breast implant can be used to further shape the breast. Our surgery center in Miami is fully equipped to excel through this procedure.
Recovery time is similar to the breast lift surgery, so we ask you to coordinate at least 2 weeks to fully recover. We will also provide you with a garment to wear after your surgery to keep compression and further healing. This is an outpatient procedure so please coordinate with a friend or family member to pick you up, as you will not be able to drive after surgery. Our staff at Prestige Institute for Aesthetic Surgery will coordinate all follow up visits with your surgeon to ensure you are healing properly.
