About Breast Reduction Surgery

Excessively large breasts can cause physical and social challenges for women. In addition, extremely large breasts can create confidence issues and embarrassment, as well as pain in both the neck and back. Dr. David Yonick is a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in Midland, MI who has helped countless women regain their confidence and live the life they want through a cosmetic breast reduction. This plastic surgery at Yonick Plastic Surgery reduces excess breast tissue and skin to recontour the breasts to a more balanced size. It also reconstructs the size of the areola and nipple and repositions them so they appear normal with the new breast size. In most cases, a breast lift may be incorporated to provide a tighter and healthier appearance.

Ideal Candidates

If you suffer from extremely large and heavy breasts that interfere with daily life, a surgical breast reduction may be a good option to achieve the contour you want. This surgery is ideal for women who deal with constant worry or are not able to lead an active life because of the heaviness of their breasts. Moreover, if you have ongoing skin inflammations or irritations as well as back pain, this surgery can greatly diminish many of these annoyances. It is important patients are at a stable weight, and find a skillful surgeon like Dr. Yonick who understands their concerns and goals and has the training to produce a normal and natural appearance.

Surgical Technique

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure and is performed with general anesthesia. The time frame for the surgery is dependent upon a variety of factors, including the incision type, the overall surgical technique, and finally, the amount of tissue removal needed. The nipple and areola repositioning is another factor. Typically, liposuction is required for tissue and fat reduction to decrease the breast size. At the time of the initial consult, all of these factors are addressed with Dr. Yonick. The topic of scarring is also carefully discussed as it is common for scarring to occur. Although, modern methods have led to a significant decrease in the complexity of scarring. Depending on the difficulty of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be made. The breast tissue will be removed, and the surrounding tissue and skin pulled and lifted.

What to Expect

After surgery, our patients will be observed closely in our quiet recovery facility and then sent home to heal. A thin tube for draining will most likely be inserted near the surgical site to assist with bleeding. A medical sports bra will be worn for several days that will increase blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will naturally fall into position and the post-op effects will heal. Most of our patients at Yonick Plastic Surgery remark they feel very relieved and lighter and more confident. After breast reduction surgery, you can buy the clothes you so desire and feel excited with your new contour. Remember, it is important to adhere to a healthy body weight so the results are not compromised.
