More about Breast
During Your Consultation
During your breast reduction consultation, Dr. Davis will assess the shape, volume, and symmetry of both breasts and take measurements. You will have an opportunity to share your story of how larger breasts have affected your life and discuss your goals and ideal result. You will be able to describe to Dr. Davis how much smaller you would like to be. You can also share and specific concerns and have all of your questions answered.
Prior to going into surgery, Dr. Davis will measure and mark your breasts for the reduction. These marking serve as a guide in surgery to insure the best possible shape and symmetry. Using incisions that result in “anchor” scar pattern, the excess skin and breast tissue is removed, and the remaining breast tissue is shaped and suspended to create smaller, lifted breasts. The size of the areola is also reduced to keep it in proportion with the breast. The surgery takes around 2-3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
After surgery you will be placed in a supportive bra and will return to the office the next day for us to check on you. We will continue to check on you as you recover and are of course here and available any day if you have any questions or concerns.
Recovery from a breast reduction is quite rapid. You’ll feel sore for a few days but will be feel good within a week. Change in nipple sensitivity after surgery is common and often returns to normal in a few months. Scars are the most noticeable around 6 weeks and then will begin to fade. After the first week, you can gradually increase your activity level, and strenuous exercise can resume at 6 weeks.
