If you have uncomfortably large breasts, then you already know the problems that many other women who have opted for a breast reduction in Atlanta have been forced to deal with: persistent pain in the shoulders and neck, difficulty exercising, and stares from strangers. When your breasts are too large and out of proportion from the rest of your frame, your entire life is impacted – how you dress, the activities you participate in, and more.
Large or heavy breasts can also cause problems with posture, skin irritations, skeletal deformities, and nerve irritations of the fingers. What’s more, bra straps can often leave indentations in the shoulder area because of the weight of the breasts.
Breast reduction surgery in Atlanta is an option that has already change the lives – for the better – of many women.
Choosing Breast Reduction Surgery in Atlanta
At Val Plastic Surgery, our approach to breast reduction combines the latest surgical techniques for long-lasting breast resizing and reshaping. Our goal is to not only give you breasts that look amazing, but also that retain their shape, perkiness, and beauty for many years.
But that’s not all. With breast reduction surgery, we can help alleviate:
- Physical and mental discomfort
- Physical pain
- Low self-esteem
- Difficulty with physical activity or exercise
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, or you are simply unhappy with the large size of your breasts, then you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction in Atlanta. We will spend ample time with you and listen to your goals and expectations so that we can craft a plan that is specific to you.
During your surgery, a keyhole-shaped incision will be made around the nipple and down toward the crease below your breast. To reduce the size of your breasts, excess tissue and skin will be removed. Excess fat can also be removed with liposuction, if needed.
What to Expect During and After Surgery
Our breast reduction procedures are performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Following surgery, your chest will be bandaged, and you may be sent home in a surgical bra. You will be prescribed pain medication to help keep you comfortable during this initial period.
The amount of time you need to recover from breast reduction surgery will depend on your natural healing rate as well as the extent of surgery performed. You will be able to get up and walk around the same day of surgery, although you should have a trusted adult with you during the first 24 hours.
Most patients feel ready to drive and return to a desk job within one week, after they are no longer taking prescription pain medication. It will likely be three to four weeks before you are able to resume normal exercise.
