Cosmetic Breast Reduction Surgery
For women that desire an uplifted and youthful breast appearance and who also want a smaller breast size, a cosmetic breast reduction procedure is available. A cosmetic breast reduction procedure uses the same cosmetic principles of lifting and shaping the breast used in a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure. The difference is that with a breast reduction, breast tissue weight is surgically removed.
Cosmetic breast reduction procedures make a significant improvement in breast shaping, nipple position and volume distribution. Some women also notice improvement in neck, back and shoulder pain as a result of cosmetic breast reduction surgery.
The scar pattern for most cosmetic breast reductions is the 'lollipop' scar seen with vertical breast lift procedures. There is a circular scar around the areola and a vertical scar down the front of the breast. The areola is reduced to a more youthful size. The scars are pink and raised for the first couple of months after the operation. With time, breast scars fade and soften.
Dr. Burnett frequently uses a vertical breast reduction technique because it achieves excellent breast shaping, minimizes scars and has good longevity.
During your cosmetic breast reduction consultation with Dr. Burnett, the breast size and shape that you desire will be discussed. The amount of breast tissue that will be removed to achieve your breast size goals will also be discussed.
