Breast Reduction

In Englewood

Introduction to Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure offered at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO aimed at reducing the size, reshaping, and lifting of excessively large breasts. This surgery addresses both physical discomfort and aesthetic concerns associated with disproportionately large breasts.

What is Breast Reduction?

Breast Reduction is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a more proportionate breast size. Breast reduction surgery not only reduces the size of the breasts but also aims to improve their shape, resulting in breasts that are smaller, lifted, and more proportionate to the body. It aims to alleviate symptoms associated with large breasts, such as neck pain, back pain, shoulder grooving from bra straps, and posture issues.

How Does Breast Reduction Work?

During the procedure, incisions are made to access the breast tissue. Dr. Samir Hasan removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin, reshaping and lifting the breasts to create a more balanced and proportionate appearance. The nipple-areola complex might be repositioned to match the new breast contour. The incisions are then closed, resulting in smaller, firmer, and lifted breasts. Post-surgery, patients are given detailed instructions for recovery, including how to care for the incision sites, manage discomfort, and when to follow up with Dr. Samir Hasan. The goal of breast reduction surgery is not only to reduce breast size but also to alleviate physical discomfort, improve body proportions, and enhance overall self-confidence.

Benefits of Breast Reduction

Alleviation of Physical Discomfort

Breast Reduction surgery effectively reduces the size and weight of overly large breasts, alleviating chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain caused by the strain of carrying excessive breast tissue.

Improved Posture and Physical Activity

By reducing the weight and size of the breasts, this surgery can contribute to improved posture and increased comfort during physical activities, enabling individuals to engage in exercises and activities that were previously uncomfortable.

Relief from Skin Irritations

Large breasts often cause skin irritations and rashes in the folds underneath the breasts. Breast Reduction helps alleviate these issues by reducing skin-to-skin contact and friction.

Enhanced Emotional Well-being

Many patients experience a significant improvement in self-esteem and body image following Breast Reduction surgery. The procedure can relieve emotional distress and improve overall mental well-being.

Clothing Fit and Fashion Options

Patients find it easier to find well-fitting clothing and bras after Breast Reduction. The procedure reduces the bust size, allowing for a broader range of clothing options and increased comfort in wearing different styles.

Correction of Asymmetry

Breast Reduction can address breast asymmetry issues by creating more balanced and symmetrical breasts, providing a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
