If you are experiencing pain or emotional turmoil due to the weight or size of the breasts, it may be time to consider a breast reduction. Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness offers this treatment to women living in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Fayetteville, and the nearby communities of North Carolina.
What is Involved in a Breast Reduction?
A breast reduction is a breast enhancement procedure that can alleviate the symptoms of large or heavy breasts. Having breasts that are too large for your frame may cause physical symptoms, diminish self-esteem, and interfere with even the most routine of daily tasks. Women with large breasts are prone to:
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Lower back pain
- Bruising and soreness along the bra straps
- Poor posture
- Difficulty in finding bras and other clothing that fit properly
With a breast reduction, we can eliminate excess breast tissue to enhance a patient’s comfort and self-esteem.
How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost in Fayetteville, NC?
A breast reduction is a very personalized procedure. Because of this, the cost of your procedure will vary. Factors that affect the cost of your breast reduction include the amount of breast tissue that needs to be removed and other factors that are determined during the consultation. To help you have a budget in mind when you meet with one of our plastic surgeons, we invite you to learn about our financing options.
What Are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?
The benefits of a breast reduction include:
- Reduces breast size to suit physique, personal desires, and lifestyle
- May correct physical symptoms caused by excessive weight and size
- Boosts self confidence
How Does a Breast Reduction Work?
Breast reduction is performed with general anesthesia to ensure your safety and comfort. Our team may use one of several incision techniques to provide you with the optimal results. Many techniques involve an incision around the circumference of the areola. In some cases, this incision will also extend downwards to give us better access to the breast tissue. Through these incisions, we will remove skin and fat to produce the desired results and get the breasts to an optimal size.
What Can I Expect During Recovery From a Breast Reduction?
After a breast reduction procedure, you can expect an initial recovery period that lasts one to two weeks. During this time, you will need to take time off of work and other activities to allow the body to heal. You will experience some swelling, bruising and general discomfort that will improve over the weeks following treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from a Breast Reduction?
The results from your breast reduction treatment will become noticeable as the body heals and recovers from treatment. Most patients notice results within a few weeks of treatment, with the full results becoming visible about two to three months later. These results will be permanent, although the breasts will still be susceptible to further changes due to aging, pregnancy and other factors.
