Nipple And Areola Reduction Are Part Of The Process

The role of nipple and areola reduction is pivotal in achieving a harmonious and proportionate breast size. Often, as breasts are reduced in volume, the nipples and areolas may need to be resized and repositioned to better suit the newly contoured breasts. Dr. Lisa Learn's expertise in this procedure ensures that these adjustments are made with precision and care, resulting in breasts that not only feel more comfortable but also look aesthetically pleasing.

What To Expect During And After The Breast Reduction Procedure

After an in-depth consultation to answer all questions and discuss points such as how this procedure can affect breastfeeding and your personalized approach to this procedure, you will schedule a date for surgery. Breast reduction surgery lasts approximately two to four hours.

  • Anesthesia: The surgery begins with the administration of anesthesia, ensuring the patient's comfort and pain control throughout the procedure.
  • Incision Placement: Discreet incisions are strategically positioned to minimize scarring. The exact incision pattern may vary depending on the specific needs of the patient.
  • Tissue and Fat Removal: Excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are carefully removed, reducing the overall volume of the breasts. Liposuction may also be employed to remove excess fat.
  • Nipple and Areola Adjustment: If necessary, the position and size of the nipples and areolas are adjusted to create a more natural and proportionate appearance.
  • Breast Reshaping: The remaining breast tissue is skillfully reshaped and lifted to achieve the desired contour and elevation.
  • Closing Incisions: Incisions are meticulously closed using sutures, and surgical dressings are applied.
  • Recovery and Follow-Up: After the surgery, patients are closely monitored during their recovery period. Instructions for post-operative care and follow-up appointments are provided to ensure a smooth healing process.
  • Healing and Results: Most patients can resume everyday activities in a few weeks, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least a month. Over time, the breasts heal, and patients can enjoy the benefits of reduced breast size, improved comfort, and enhanced aesthetics.
