Breast Reduction - Mammaplasty Cost & Procedure Information
Breast reduction is also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. If the areola has been stretched due to the size of the breast, it may also be reduced. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts.
Big breasts can be a problem physically and psychologically. Both adult women and teenagers with oversized breasts choose to have a breast reduction, a procedure which reduces the size and reshapes large breasts by removing excess skin and underlying tissue. If you have large, sagging breasts you may be a good candidate for breast reduction. If your breasts are sagging but not overly large, a breast lift may be a better procedure for you.
Every woman should feel proud of the beauty of their natural breasts. As time goes on, though, many times women who've had children or naturally have oversized breasts experience an unsatisfying increase in breast size that they cannot change or reverse on their own. Breasts that are too large for the body cause back, neck, and shoulder pain, and interfere with daily activities, and at times make a woman feel highly self-conscious. Naturally, large breasts can also be difficult to assess for lumps or masses, which makes cancer detection more difficult for the physician or the patient. I would encourage every woman self-conscience of their breast size to consider researching and asking themselves if breast reduction surgery would be appropriate in their lives.
Breast reduction involves making incisions following the natural contour of the breast. Excess tissue, fat, and skin are removed and then the nipple, areola, and underlying tissue are moved to a new, higher location. When the breasts are extremely oversized, it is sometimes necessary to completely detach the nipple before it is relocated. With the nipple in the new location, skin on both sides of the breast is moved down and around the areola and brought together. This firms up and shapes the breast. We perform breast reduction surgery for patients in Atlanta and surrounding suburbs near Marietta, Cumming, Kennesaw, and Alpharetta.

"By far one of the nicest and most professional offices I have been to. Plus he is an outstanding surgeon and has a good bedside manner, which if you are anything like me, the bedside manner is really important. I've had two surgeries with him (both on my chest) and I am thrilled with the result! The only thing difficult about the office is trying to spell his last name. " - Melvin
