achieve the desired shape and volume
Breast Reduction is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the over all volume of the breasts by raising the breasts and re-positions the nipples if necessary. Breast Implants and possibly Liposuction are sometimes used to achieve the desired shape and volume. Of course, every patient is different and has different goals and your surgeon will explain how your goals can best be achieved. The following information about breast reduction will give you a general idea about breast reduction. During the breast reduction procedure, the surgeon will make an incision around the areola to help hid any scaring with the goal of leaving nerves and blood vessels attached to reduce any breast or nipple numbness after surgery. Two other incisions are made from the base of the areola downward to the fold area of the breast where the breast meets the abdomen. And lastly, an incision is made along the fold of the breast, again where the breast meets the abdomen.
The excess skin between the two downward incisions is completely removed, and excess fat and glands are carefully removed from the breast using liposuction. During this part of the procedure, the surgeon will reshape and contour the breasts, and possibly use breast implants. In the final stages of the procedure, the surgeon sutures the areola and nipple in it’s new higher position, draws the bottom of the breast together with what now appears as a single incision, and closes the incision in the fold of the breast to complete the procedure.

improve your level of confidence
While breast reduction surgery can result in an improved level of confidence and often much more proportionately sized breasts, breast reduction surgery can require certain trade-offs that breast reduction candidates should be aware of. This procedure will scaring scars around the areola, in a straight line down from the base of the areola to the fold where the breast meets the abdomen, and in the fold along the base of the breasts. This is how your surgeon is able to not only reduce the volume of the breasts but how they are able to reposition the nipple and eliminate excess skin and reshape the breast to a more youthful, perky appearance.
Remembering that Dr. Mendez is an experienced plastic surgeon, any scaring will be minimal and can be reduced with DeepFX Laser Scar Reduction. Patients should also be aware that they may experience issues with breast feeding and may also loose some feeling or sensitivity in certain areas of their breasts. Most often, the areola and nipples are not completely detached from the breasts in order to prevent the possibility numbness and patients usually retain full feeling in their breasts. However, in certain cases, it may be necessary to remove the areola and nipple so they can be moved to a more natural position. If the patient elects to have their nipples and areolas detached, the patient will loose feeling and sensitivity in the areola and nipple, and will not be able to breast feed.
