BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY
Many women who have larger breasts often wonder if having breast reduction surgery is right for them. There are many things to consider when choosing any surgery and breast reductions are no different. Knowing your options, ideal outcomes, benefits and risks is key in making the right decision. Our aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Garza, specializes in breast procedures including breast reductions. He would love to consult with you to see if this is a good option for you.
HOW DOES BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY WORK?
The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce the size, shape and weight of the breast(s).
A breast reduction procedure, commonly referred to as a reduction mammoplasty, removes extra fat, tissue and skin from the breast area and the plastic surgeon reshapes the area for a more proportional look and feel. Liposuction can also be performed during the procedure if the plastic surgeon sees fit. Your breast surgeon will discuss all of your options with you beforehand to see which techniques are best in your specific case.
Breast reduction surgery can be often be performed in an outpatient setting in our Tennessee Surgery Center in Nashville. There are many benefits of outpatient surgery like being able to go home the same day! Find out if this procedure is right for you by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Garza.
