A More Youthful Appearance
A breast reduction procedure, also known as a reduction mammaplasty, can help alleviate discomfort or pain that can be part of having very large breasts. With the purpose of having a beautiful result, the procedure reduces and provides a more youthful appearance to the breasts. Both Dr. Feledy and Dr. Maiorino are specialists who have performed the procedure countless times.
Some women are genetically prone to breasts that are too large to be comfortable for their body or have had increases in their breast size after pregnancy or weight changes. These larger breasts and increased weight can place strain on the neck, back and shoulder areas causing pain and discomfort. Under these circumstances, a breast reduction surgery can be done, decreasing the breast size by removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin and lifting the breasts into a more natural position on the chest.
Remove Fat and Tighten
A typical breast reduction surgery will take several hours and will be performed under general anesthesia. During your breast reduction, Washington DC plastic surgeons Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will surgically remove excess breast tissue and the skin will be tightened to elevate the breast position on the chest wall. The traditional incision pattern follows an inverted T or anchor shape but may vary depending on your individual breast size and shape.
When your breast reduction is finished, Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will send you home with specific post-op instructions to follow. Patients will be given a surgical bra to wear for several weeks and medications to help manage pain. It's common for Washington DC breast reduction patients to experience some swelling, aching, bruising and changes in skin sensation as they recover.
“I'd had pain and discomfort because of my breasts for a long time. But I was also scared of getting a breast reduction. Finally I looked for the best breast reduction Washington DC had and found Dr. Feledy. He made me feel very comfortable and I felt understood. Now 6 months later, I feel like a new person! I wish I did this years ago!”
