Breast Reduction Surgery Offers Cosmetic and Health Benefits
Overly large breasts can not only detract from a patient's appearance and confidence, they can also cause a great deal of discomfort. Fortunately, Dr. Brian F. Burns offers breast reduction surgery at our Victoria, TX, practice to remove breast tissue so that patients can achieve more proportionate figures and find relief from pain. To discover if breast reduction surgery is right for you, schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Burns today.
Candidates for Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of excess fat, tissue, and skin from the breasts. This treatment may be performed for a number of reasons. Women with an excessive amount of breast tissue can suffer from back and neck pain due to the weight of their bosom. In addition to physical problems, overly large breasts can have a negative emotional impact on a patient. Breast reduction surgery is also frequently performed on male patients, since certain hormonal issues can cause men to develop excess breast tissue.
You may benefit from breast reduction surgery if you suffer from any of these issues. When you visit our practice for a consultation, Dr. Burns will examine your breasts and discuss your concerns to evaluate your candidacy for a breast reduction. Once he has determined that this procedure is right for you, Dr. Burns will review different breast reduction techniques and begin developing a personalized treatment plan.
In some cases, it is possible to complete a breast reduction by utilizing liposuction techniques alone.
The Surgical Procedure
We will begin your breast reduction procedure by administering anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Dr. Burns will then make incisions into the breasts. The type of incision used will depend on your unique goals and physical features. In some cases, it is possible to complete a breast reduction by utilizing liposuction techniques alone. After the incision has been made, we will carefully remove excess fat and tissue to create a bust line that is more proportionate to your overall figure. We may also reposition the nipple to achieve a more attractive appearance, if necessary. Once he has achieved the desired results, Dr. Burns will complete your breast reduction by closing the incisions. You will need to have someone drive you to and from the appointment because of the use of anesthesia. Once home, you should be sure to rest for the first 24 hours and follow Dr. Burns' recovery instructions as closely as possible during the coming weeks and months. Dr. Burns will also monitor your recovery by having you visit our practice for follow-up appointments.
