Breast Reduction Surgery In Newport Beach, Orange County, CA

Few things make a woman feel more feminine, sexier, and beautiful than attractive breasts. Breasts that are natural looking and proportionate for the individual, can profoundly impact a woman’s self-confidence. This is why board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. John Compoginis, Deborah Ekstrom and Juris Bunkis offers breast reduction in Newport Beach at Orange County Plastic Surgery.

What Are Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction removes excess tissue and/or skin and tightens the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. With a reduction, shape improves and the cup size is decreased for a more desirable profile. This will eliminate uncomfortable back pain, improve posture, and allow you to move more freely.

Breast Reduction Candidates

When your neck and back hurt, it reduces your quality of life. When you are in pain, your movements are limited, your posture is slumped, and you generally do not feel well. Women with large breasts experience this on a daily basis. Some women, through no fault of their own, cannot correct this issue with diet and exercise alone. If you experience the following symptoms from large, heavy breasts, you may be an ideal candidate for breast reduction surgery:

  • Irritation and rashes on the skin underneath the bra
  • Diet and exercise unsuccessfully decreasing the size of the breasts
  • Disproportionate breasts to the body frame
  • Weight of the breasts causes pain in the neck, shoulders, and back
  • Bra straps grooves in the shoulders
  • Limitations on activity because of the size of the breasts
  • Poor posture

Breast Reduction Procedure And Recovery

Using state-of-the-art surgical techniques that limit the risks of surgery, our plastic surgeon will skillfully remove excess skin and suction out tissue to reshape the breast. During surgery, it is common to use one of the following incision approaches:

  • An incision around of the areola
  • A vertical incision from the bottom of the areola to the breast line
  • A horizontal incision on the breast line

Liposuction may also be used to safely remove fat tissues from within the breast. Excess skin will be removed, and then a breast lift is usually needed to attain a healthy looking result. It is common for women requesting this procedure to go down 1 – 2 cup sizes.

After a 2 – 4-hour breast reduction surgery, you will wake up in recovery and feel immediately lighter in the chest area. You will be instructed on how to properly care for your incisions to limit scarring. After being sent home in surgical bra, it is advised that you take it easy for the first few weeks after the surgery.

Expect to feel less sensation in your nipples, as they will take up to a year to recover and resume sensitivity. It is suggested that breast reduction patients not return to physical work for 7 – 10 days and wait 4 weeks before resuming full physical activities.

Breast Reduction Results

Breast reduction surgery can dramatically change the lives of our patients, resulting in smaller breasts that makes everyday activities easier. Unless the patient fluctuates in weight, the results should be permanent. In the few months and weeks following the procedure, it is advised for you to continue wearing comfortable bras and applying silicone tape to your incision to incisions to expedite healing.

Once exercise can be worked back into your day-to-day life, it is important to maintain a healthy weight. Breast reduction surgery is a long-lasting cosmetic surgery; however, the results can be negatively impacted by weight gain and/or pregnancy.
