NJ Breast Reduction – Benefits & What to Expect

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MARCH 01, 2022 AT 3:37 PM  by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

It’s often assumed that all women desire larger, more voluminous breasts. However, this isn’t the case.

Many women struggle with overly large breasts that lead to chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain, chafing, skin irritation, and overall discomfort. Not to mention, overly large breasts often hinder mobility and self-image.

Dr. Asaadi performs breast reduction procedures for patients looking to achieve more natural-looking or smaller breasts. Breast reduction can also be used to achieve better symmetry of the chest.

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Also known as reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction works by removing excess fat, breast tissue, and skin through small incisions.

Breast reduction surgery is often combined with a breast lift for a balanced and youthful-looking result.

Along with decreasing the breast size, breast reduction can also achieve a natural-looking shape to the chest.


Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

The breast reduction procedure can offer patients life-changing benefits. Whether choosing to undergo breast reduction surgery for medical or cosmetic reasons, patient satisfaction is always at the forefront.

Check out some of the benefits of breast reduction surgery:

  •      A well-proportioned body
  •      More ease when exercising
  •      Alleviation of back / shoulder pain
  •      Better fitting clothing
  •      Improved hygiene

The Pedicle Technique

Breast reduction is often performed using the pedicle technique. This technique entails moving the nipple and the areola higher on the breast, attaching it to the pedicle tissue. By doing so, the functionality of the breast and sensitivity of the nipples remain intact.

Breast Reduction Surgery What to Expect

Before your breast reduction procedure, you can expect a thorough breast exam. This ensures the procedure is right for you, as well as what technique will work best and how much fat / tissue may need to be removed.

Following your breast reduction surgery, drains may be placed to promote proper healing. Additionally, your breasts will be wrapped and you will be required to wear a support garment to reduce discomfort.

Your breasts may be sore following the procedure and you may experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Recovery is known to be different for each patient.

You should avoid rigorous activity for at least 1 month following surgery. As the healing process progresses, you will notice a decrease in breast size.
