About Breast Reduction
A mammoplasty, or breast reduction surgery, can be an effective treatment for reducing the size and shape of overly large breasts. Many women who have heavy breasts, also experience back pain and general discomfort, affecting their overall quality of life and confidence. Beautiful Orlando Spa and Cosmetic Surgery’s team is well-equipped to address this issue by performing breast reduction surgery. The result will not only reduce the breasts but yield a more symmetrical and uniformed look as well. The procedure is customizable, allowing the patient to choose how much or how little of the breast tissue to remove. Please call our Orlando, FL, office to learn if breast reduction surgery is right for you.

Do I Qualify?
Breast reduction is appropriate if you experience:
- Disproportionate breasts to the body
- Painfully heavy breasts
- Bra strap grooves in the shoulders
- Limitations on activity
- Slumped posture
- Gynecomastia (male breast growth)
What to Expect
During a reduction mammaplasty, the surgeon will skillfully remove excess skin and tissue before re-contouring the breasts. The surgeon can choose to implement these incision patterns:
- Incision around the circumference of the areola
- Vertical incision from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast line
- Horizontal incision on the breast line
Liposuction may also be used to safely remove excessive tissue in the breast and will minimize scarring as it requires a much smaller incision. It also reduces the risk of losing nipple sensation and discoloration of the areola due to poor blood flow during surgery. The surgeon will discuss the difference between the techniques and help you determine which is best for your needs and goals.
After breast reduction surgery, you may feel immediately lighter, due to the amount of tissue removed. After the surgery, you should wear a compression bra to support the healing process for the first couple of weeks. You will also be given post-operative care instructions and you can pre-schedule your follow up appointments to help you stay on track during your recovery process. You will need to rest for at least 7-10 days before returning to work. Regular physical activities can be resumed within 6-8 weeks. In some patients, it may take a year for nipple sensitivity to return to normal.
Plan Your Procedure
Freedom From Pain
Both men and women can experience excessive breast tissue growth. If you desire lighter, more proportionate breasts that allow you to be comfortable in your clothes and relieve your neck, shoulders, and back of the aching from carrying around extra weight, then a mammoplasty might be the right option for you.
