Breast Reduction Improving patient results and care
Description: A breast reduction is a procedure that removes breast tissue and results in smaller breasts. Patients who have large breasts often complain of lifestyle difficulties such as finding proper clothing including adequately fitting bras, or difficulty exercising, and they may also have physical discomfort such as upper back and neck straining and shoulder grooving and poor posture. In addition, they may experience emotional problems including embarrassment, self-consciousness, and anxiety. Patients typically report immediate improvement in their condition and great satisfaction with a breast reduction. During your consultation, Dr. Olivier A. Deigni will examine you and discuss your particular goals. Placement of incisions will be explained and tailored to your body. Sometimes medical insurance companies may pay for a portion of the procedure. Patients are encouraged to check with their insurance before having surgery.
Surgery: A breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes 3 – 4 hours.
