About Breast Reduction Surgery

Abnormally large breasts can create functional, and physical problems for many women. Furthermore, uneven and very large breasts can lead to self-confidence issues and overall embarrassment, as well as physical pain. Dr. Chris Costa is a plastic surgeon in Las Vegas, NV who continues to help countless women get back their confidence and feel more comfortable through surgical reduction of the breasts. This aesthetic surgery at Platinum Plastic Surgery removes excess breast fat and skin to redefine and reshape the breasts to a smaller size. Breast reduction surgery also reshapes the size of the nipples/areolas and moves them so they are symmetrical with the new size. In most situations, a breast lift can be implemented to produce a more taut and younger-looking appearance. The goal of Dr. Costa and his team at Platinum Plastic Surgery is to restore your breasts to a size that functions well for your lifestyle and that is aesthetically appealing. Breast reduction surgery can reduce the unpleasant side effects of overly large breasts in order to allow you to live more comfortably without compromising your appearance. 

Ideal Candidates

If you are unhappy with your oversized breasts that create obstacles in your everyday life, cosmetic breast reduction surgery may be what you need to get the shape you desire. Breast reduction is helpful for women who find it difficult to live a fulfilled and active life because of the weight of their breasts. If you also deal with consistent skin irritations, back pain, or neck pain, breast reduction surgery can eliminate these medical conditions. It's crucial that prospective breast reduction patients are at a healthy weight and choose a trained surgeon like Dr. Costa who listens to their desired outcome and has the aptitude to create a pleasing and natural appearance.

Surgical Technique

Surgical breast reduction is an outpatient procedure and is conducted with the patient under general anesthesia. Surgery is 2 – 3 hours and depends on the complexity of the incision, the general reduction technique, and, finally, how much reduction is required. The areola and nipple area repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is needed for fat and tissue elimination to reduce the breast size. During the private consultation, all of these aspects are addressed with Dr. Costa. Potential scarring is also scrupulously examined and talked through as it is likely to occur. However, surgical skill and advanced techniques have led to a noticeable reduction in the visibility of scarring. Based on the intricacy of the size and overall reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be incorporated during the procedure. Breast fat and tissue will then be removed, and the existing skin and tissue will be pulled tight and secured.

What to Expect

Once surgery has been completed, you will be monitored closely in a comfortable recovery facility and then discharged home to begin the healing process. You will need to wear a support bra for a few weeks during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will position themselves and settle and the post-surgery effects will fade away. The vast selection of our patients at Platinum Plastic Surgery say they feel much lighter and more confident. Following surgical breast reduction, you can enjoy the clothes you could not wear before and feel enthusiastic with your new look. Keep in mind it is important to maintain a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not affected in a negative way.
