Why Consider a Breast Reduction?

On the surface, the breast reduction Atlanta surgery may seem like a cosmetic surgery procedure, but there are reasons to consider this procedure that extend beyond aesthetics. Women whose breasts are very large may suffer from chronic neck, back and shoulder pain, particularly as they age, and their breasts lose elasticity. Generally speaking, the purpose of the breast reduction Atlanta is to improve a woman's appearance while simultaneously relieving any pain or discomfort that they are experiencing due to the size of their breasts. Most people who invest in this procedure find that they are more comfortable and that they enjoy a greater sense of self-confidence.

Breast Reduction Procedure

When performed by the best breast reduction surgeon Atlanta, the breast reduction procedure is a very successful surgery. During this procedure, Dr. Lincenberg will use skill and precision in order to remove excess breast fat, tissue and skin in order to reduce the size of the breasts and create a look that you will love. This procedure can be customized to meet your specific needs. For example, if the areola has stretched as a result of breast size, the surgeon can also reduce the size of your areola during this procedure.

In order to perform the procedure, Dr. Lincenberg will make discrete incisions along the natural contour of your breasts. This allows him to effectively remove any excess breast fat and tissue without visible scarring after your recovery.

After your recovery, you will find that you have firm, shapely breasts and minimal pain and discomfort as a result of your breast size. Most women say that they love the results and should have had the surgery years ago.

Dr. Lincenberg's Facility 

Your breast reduction procedure will be performed at a state-of-the-art surgical center. Dr. Lincenberg prides himself on the fact that all of his patients are made to feel safe, reassured and comfortable from the moment that they arrive at the facility. 


The Breast Reduction Atlanta is performed under general anesthesia. In order to remove the excess breast fat, tissue and skin, the surgeon will make a discrete incision along the natural contour of the breast. Depending on the work that needs to be done and the number of procedures that are being performed simultaneously, the surgery can last anywhere from two to four hours. This is an outpatient procedure, so you will likely rest and recover at the surgical facility for a couple of hours after the procedure is complete, but you will be able to go home that day. Your surgeon will provide you with any prescriptions that you may need for pain management, as well as a care plan for the first several days in recovery.


Most patients find that the breast reduction recovery lasts for about two weeks, but the lifestyle adjustments that are required may last for several months after the procedure. Some lifestyle adjustments that you will have to make during recovery include:

  • Avoiding heavy lifting.
  • Avoiding strenuous exercise.
  • Wearing a compression garment over your breasts in order to provide support.
