Breast Reduction Surgery –
Choosing a Breast Specialist for Your Procedure
Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, reduces the size of the breasts by removing excess fat and breast tissue, tightening internal breast structure and relocating the nipple structure to a higher, more aesthetic position on the breast. Excess skin is removed and, if necessary, the size of the areola is reduced. The result is a better contour and natural-looking breast that is proportionate with the rest of the body.
Dr. Lampert has performed thousands of plastic surgery procedures and cautions women considering this procedure to choose their surgeon very carefully. Breast reduction surgery is complex. The skin laxity, breast tissue density, and blood supply within the breast must be respected to retain the overall integrity the of breast and achieve an aesthetically pleasing result. Breast reduction takes a keen artistic eye as well as adroit surgical skill to produce beautiful and natural results.
There are three main incision methods used in reduction mammoplasty:
- Donut incision: located around the areola
- Lollipop incision: located around the areola, then extending from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease
- Anchor incision: lollipop incision with an additional incision made in the breast crease
Procedure and Recovery
Breast reduction surgery is done on an outpatient basis at an accredited surgical center or hospital. Dr. Lampert puts patient safety above all else and only performs his procedures with a full complement of qualified medical specialists.
The surgery is done under general anesthetic. After patients have recovered from the anesthetic, they are ready to be released into the care of their chosen caregiver. It is recommended that the caregiver stay with the patient for 24 to 48 hours to assist with meals, household support and ensure all medications are taken on time.
There will be some swelling and bruising which will mostly resolve within several weeks. Ice packs can be applied to minimize swelling. Pain medication will be prescribed to ensure patient comfort. Patients should arrange to have 2 weeks off from work and should spend that time resting and recovering. Strenuous activity and heavy lifting will take longer to return to. Dr. Lampert will give specific instructions on this and care for the incisions
While the healing process will take several months, the benefits from breast reduction surgery will be noticed immediately. The reduced weight of the breasts and resultant freedom of movement can be enjoyed a few days post-surgery.
Following surgery, Dr. Lampert makes himself always available to his patients. He ensures that his patients are given full instructions on their post-operative care, but he understands the security in knowing that he can be reached at any time if his patients need any additional support.
