Dr. Stratis performs breast reduction in Pennsylvania under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Through carefully-placed incisions, excess skin and tissue will be removed. In most cases, the nipple remains attached to its original blood supply although, in the case of extremely large breasts, the nipple may need to be removed and transplanted to a new position for optimal results. A breast lift is often performed in conjunction with breast reduction to create an elevated appearance.
As soon as you're up and about after surgery, you'll see right away that your breasts are smaller and balanced with the rest of your figure. Although you should be able to return to work after several days, full exercise should not resume until three weeks after the procedure. When recovery is complete, most women are thrilled to find that they feel confident enough to wear more revealing clothing and that they can engage in exercise without discomfort or embarrassment.
