Breast Reduction Richmond

Women with very large or pendulous breasts often experience both physical as well as emotional symptoms. Aside from a negative body image, feelings of self-consciousness or social embarrassment, you may have back, shoulder, or neck pain, or may have irritation of the skin underneath the breast. A breast reduction involves the surgical removal of skin, glandular, and fatty tissue, while at the same time relocating the nipple to a higher, more natural position. If you have an over-stretched areola (the pigmented, dark area around the nipple), this can be reduced in size as well. If you know somebody who had surgical drains with a breast reduction in the past, there is good news today! With modern plastic surgery techniques, Dr. Hubert is able to avoid drains in most patients. Patients wear a fitted post-surgical bra or sports bra (no underwire) during the recovery period until the incisions have healed. A routine mammogram may be necessary before your procedure to establish a baseline. Breast reduction can improve your self-esteem, physical symptoms, and overall quality of life, and it ranks among the procedures with the highest patient satisfaction.
