Breast Reduction in Wellington & West Palm Beach, FL

get rid of pain and discomfort

While the unfortunate stereotype is to believe that all women want larger breasts, the fact is that overly large, extremely heavy breasts can cause a myriad of problems, including pain and discomfort, limited exercise and physical activity, and even self-consciousness and social anxiety. The plastic surgeons at Hass Plastic Surgery, offer breast reduction for women in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Palm Beach, Wellington and the surrounding areas of Florida.

What is Breast Reduction?

remove excess skin, fat and tissue

Breast reduction is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin, fat, and breast tissue. The goal of the surgery is to bring the breasts more in proportion with your body.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction can alleviate these problems and help you feel more comfortable about your body. The weight of heavy breasts can cause any number of medical concerns, such as:

  • Pain in the chest wall area
  • Prolonged neck, back, and shoulder pain
  • Poor posture
  • Deep grooves in the shoulder region resulting from bra strap pressure
  • Persistent rashes between, around, and underneath the breasts
  • Restrictions around physical activities
  • Stretched skin on or around the breasts
  • Breast ptosis (sagging, drooping breasts)
  • Damaging impact on self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Difficulty finding clothing and bras that fit appropriately

What Should I Expect from My Breast Reduction Procedure?

a highly effective solution

Fortunately, breast reduction surgery offers a safe and highly effective solution to the physical and emotional concerns linked to having overly large, heavy breasts. The size of the nipple and areola can be adjusted at the same time during the surgery. The goal of breast reduction is to dramatically alter the shape and size of your breasts, bringing them into a more proportionally balanced relationship with the rest of your body.

At Hass Plastic Surgery our breast reduction surgeries are performed in our AAAASF operating suites in Wellington or Palm Beach Gardens. The surgery is typically anywhere from 2 - 4 hours depending on the reduction needed and is performed under an IV anesthesia, not general anesthesia. Patients will receive pain medication and we will provide you with a supportive bra for comfort. Most patients are pleasantly surprised that other than minor soreness and swelling, they feel pretty good in a couple of days.

Should I lose weight before breast reduction?

discuss your options with our surgeons

If you are planning on losing a significant amount of weight we suggest you lose most of it prior to the surgery. Discuss these details with our surgeons. Weight loss before or after breast reduction surgery could ultimately affect the outcome and shape of the breast.

How old do you have to be to get a breast reduction?

a great option for young women

For young women suffering from larger breasts, reduction surgery may be a great option. Breast reduction surgery should only be considered once a woman’s breasts are fully developed.

How Long Do the Breast Reduction Results Last?

a permanent solution

Breast reduction is considered a permanent solution for overly large breasts. Although rare, some women do develop new breast tissue and may need a second surgery, such as a breast lift, or mastopexy, in the future.

Can liposuction be used for breast reduction?

a quicker recovery time

In some cases liposuction is recommended for breast reduction. At Hass Plastic Surgery we have had patients be ideal candidates for this method of breast reduction, however the lipo option will be reviewed in a personal consultation with our surgeons. Liposuction may offer a quicker recovery time and less scars, although typically the breast reduction scars do heal beautifully with proper scar treatments and will ultimately become less and less noticeable over time.
