What Is a Breast Reduction?
A breast reduction surgery performed by plastic surgeon Dr. Mouchantat combines skin and tissue removal techniques to reduce the size and sag of breasts that are overly large, often causing back, neck or shoulder pain, as well as skin infections beneath the breast.
In addition to the health benefits, breast reduction surgery can also work to improve a patient’s self-esteem by improving their silhouette and the fit of their clothes. In order to undergo this procedure, you should be a nonsmoker and understand the benefits and risks of undergoing this type of plastic surgery.
The Breast Reduction Procedure: What to Expect in Surgery
When you undergo breast reduction surgery in Denver with Dr. Mouchantat, you will be under a general anesthesia for approximately two to four hours. When he begins, your plastic surgeon will make an incision circling the bottom of the areola and extending down to the breast crease. Through this incision, Dr. Mouchantat will remove the excess skin, fat and tissue. He will then lift the remaining breast tissue as well as reshape and reposition the nipple areola. When finished, your plastic surgeon will close the incisions and cover them.
Breast Reduction Aftercare
Following your breast reduction surgery, you will likely experience swelling, bruising and discomfort and you may be prescribed medication to manage any pain. To collect fluid that may accumulate following your surgery, drains will likely be placed near the incision site. You will also be required to wear a special post-surgical bra for two to three weeks. This bra will aid in proper healing. Service areas include: Denver, Lakewood, Centennial, Colorado Springs, Arvada, Parker, Aurora, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Thornton, Wheat Ridge, Ken Caryl, Boulder & Westminster Colorado.
