Typer
Types of Breast Reductions We Could
Perform in Delray Beach

 

The type of procedure we recommend for you depends on your goals and your reason for seeking surgery.

Some types of breast reduction procedures our doctors could perform include:

  • Vertical breast reduction: We remove breast tissue through incisions, creating a vertical scar. This type of breast reduction is also sometimes referred to as a “lollipop” breast reduction because of the shape of the scar after the surgery. We may recommend this option if we do not need to remove excessive breast tissue.

 

 

  • Liposuction: Our doctors may determine that we can help you achieve the look you want by using liposuction to remove fat from the breasts. Liposuction generally only causes minimal scarring.
  • Inverted T breast reduction: This type of reduction is similar to a vertical breast reduction. Our doctors will remove unwanted breast tissue, then shape your skin around your breast tissue accordingly. We might suggest this technique if you want a significant amount of breast tissue removed.

Some patients also inquire about breast reduction surgery to help with breast cancer treatment. Reach out to our team to discuss your circumstances. Our doctors will listen to your reasons for pursuing a breast reduction and explain how we can work with you.

What Issues Can a Breast
Reduction Help With?

  • Trouble fitting into clothing
  • Headaches

Our team can assess your condition and explain whether this procedure is right for you.

Preparing
Preparing for Your
Breast Reduction
Surgery

 

Before we perform your breast reduction, our doctors will want to learn about your medical history. We may also:

  • Ask about your expectations and how you want to look and feel after the surgery
  • Explain what you can expect during and after surgery
  • Examine your breasts and add notes or photographs to your medical records
  • Inquire about any allergies you haveications
  • Provide information about the medications we may use during surgery
  • Instruct you to schedule a mammogram
  • Advise you to quit smoking
  • Require you to stop using aspirin and anti-inflammatory med

What to Expect After a Breast Reduction

 

After your surgery, we may offer you pain medications and other medicines to prevent infections. In addition, you’ll have to wear a surgical bra until your doctor determines it is safe to stop using it. Our doctors might also use tubes to drain blood or fluid from your incisions, if necessary.

There are a few limitations in the days after surgery. For example, you probably won’t be able to participate in many physical activities for up to six weeks post-operation. Your doctor may also advise you to avoid certain bras or clothing that could hinder your healing process.

Swelling is common in the first few months after surgery. You may also notice other common side effects that might not be cause for alarm, such as:

  • Temporary bruising
  • Scarring
  • Pain or sensitivity
