How Does Breast Reduction Work?
To perform a breast reduction, Dr. Burnett will begin with a detailed initial consultation to determine the goals and scope of the surgery. The procedure begins with the application of general anesthesia. Dr. Burnett will make incisions at optimal locations on the breasts, usually under the areola or radiating outward from the areola, depending on how much tissue needs to be removed and what the ultimate shape of the breasts will be once the surgery is concluded. These incisions will allow Dr. Burnett to remove fat, glandular tissue, and skin so that the remaining tissue can be repositioned. You'll see an immediate difference after surgery, and any discomfort, swelling, and incision lines will gradually fade over time, although small scars may remain. It's important to carefully follow all recommendations during your recovery!
